Drive Wire: Yamaha Unveils the Sports Ride Concept Car
More from the Tokyo Motor Show… Yamaha has left its motorsport comfort zone and entered the passenger-car arena. The sports ride concept is a little smaller than a Miata, with an impressive weight claim of less than 1,700 pounds. This nimble-looking coupe is designed to evoke the sensation of motorcycling thanks to its short wheelbase and lightweight chassis. You might not know that Yamaha actually has some experience in sports cars… it was a driving force in building the Toyota 2000GT, and produced Formula One engines in the 90’s.
