That may not be entirely by accident. Because while the design may have been carried out in-house, like the Motiv city car concept unveiled at the same show two years ago, the Sports Ride concept is designed to work with the iStream process pioneered by Gordon Murray. And we needn’t point out that he was the same designer behind the legendary McLaren F1.
Inspirations and production methods aside, the Yamaha Sports Ride concept looks rather striking in its dark grey finish. Especially with its saddle brown leather interior and carbon-fiber and metallic accents, which on the supercar spectrum remind us more of the Pagani Huayra. Only much smaller, and presumably with a more compact engine. And hopefully it’d be much more attainable, too, if Yamaha actually puts it into production… and brings it to the North American market.
