    Why is Honda so convinced that hydrogen is the answer? Cool looking design study, though... --Ed.

    The FC Sport design study model, a hydrogen-powered, three-seat sports car concept, which makes its Canadian debut at the Canadian International AutoShow, emphasizes the design flexibility and potential of Honda's V Flow fuel cell technology. This technology, already deployed in the FCX Clarity sedan, is reconfigured into a lightweight sports car design with an ultra-low centre of gravity, powerful electric motor performance and zero emissions. The design study concept is inspired by supercar levels of performance through low weight and a high-performance, electrically driven fuel cell powertrain.

    The high-output fuel cell powertrain and a sleek, aerodynamic body contribute to the vehicle's performance potential. A modular approach to fuel cell component packaging and the electric drivetrain contribute to the FC Sport's low centre of gravity with the majority of vehicle mass distributed between… [rm]http://www.financialpost.com/scripts/story.html?id=1275325[/rm]
