Your Brain Won’t Be Able To Comprehend The 2088 Honda CyberRace Concept

Will this insane Honda racing car ever see the light of day? No. Will a racing car as insane as this be produced in our lifetimes? Probably not. Nevertheless, the Honda CyberRace created by Frederic Le Schiellour is incredible to look at and offers a fresh take on what’s actually considered an automobile.

Le Schiellour’s project started with a vision of what racing cars from the year 2088 could look like. He opted for Japan as the country to host the first race and has imagined a racetrack built ten meters above the ground, connected between buildings. It is also transparent meaning those on ground level can look and see the cars above them.

As for the CyberRace itself, the first thing you’ll notice is that it has six wheels and on initial impressions, they appear to be square. However, the wheels are in fact circular, they’re just hidden behind square arches and wheel covers.

Because this is the year 2088, there’s obviously no need for a driver. Consequently, the profile of the CyberRace has been kept exceptionally low and in the center of the car is where you’ll find the powertrain which looks more like the insane of a computer than any current racing car. Obviously, it’s all-electric and would deliver earth-shattering levels of torque and horsepower.

Overall, the shape isn’t too dissimilar from the Roborace car currently in development due to the presence of high wheel arches and a slim body. A massive front splitter and underbody aerodynamics would help suck the CyberRace to the track’s surface.

While we’d love to see human drivers remain behind the wheel of racing cars as long as we live, the truth is that we don’t know if they will or if autonomous racers will take over. If that second scenario is what happens, we have our fingers crossed the cars look something like this.

    Try 2100 instead. Oh, and they’ll be no driver, or tires, or gas, or gravity for that matter. I mean, why not?

    So you’re telling me that in 60yrs time, they will finally figure out how to build glass smooth roads that requires no workable suspension?? I highly doubt that!!!

      It’s been 10 YEARS, and they haven’t even fixed the (now infamous) potholes in Beverly Hills California,… Beverly Hills…. 10 YEARS. (In fact from what I know, it’s been actually well over 20 now that they’ve not been fixed)… 2088, try 3001.

      Why? Because it doesn’t say Hackintosh or Ubuntu?

        Lol there’s nothing wrong with Microsoft, I just though it was hilarious that Microsoft got “brand placement” for a concept car, from Honda, that’s (apparently) from the year 2088.

        I see “Microsoft” brand placement everywhere. It’s just hilarious to me that (this seems like one of those concept cars that you’ll forget about in a few weeks or months, and that) Microsoft, of all people, some how found a way to get their name on it. Nothing seems to be safe from Microsofts advertising and marketing teams lol. I just thought it was funny because I see Microsoft everywhere, on everything, practically all of the time.

        (in all seriousness though, kudos to Microsofts, branding, advertising, and marketing teams. They really do their jobs well when it comes to “brand placement”).
