April 7, 2005—Honda Motor Co., Ltd. would announce the debut of the Airwave for the Japanese market, designed around the “new wave concept” a new idea for compact cars that functioned as a cool lifestyle component for youthful customers who value their own individual sensibilities over any single style. In order to achieve both a roomy passenger interior and a luggage compartment, the Airwave incorporated Honda’s original center-fuel tank layout. In combination with the convenience of a low-floor design, this also allows a variety of seating arrangements. The Sky Roof, with its extra-large opening, delivers an open-air feeling, while the ample glass area that extends seamlessly from the front windshield up onto the roof adds to the exterior stylishness.

For this modern revival i took styling ques from both then current gen Honda CR-V along with the Honda Clarity to complete the look while staying true to what Honda had built the original Airwave to be. The new power plant would run Honda’s Earth Dream Technology i-VTEC which powers the front wheels on the LX & EX models while the Sport and Touring trims would receive the optional SH-AWD system.

“The Power of Dreams” is the driving force that creates intelligent products which enhance mobility and increase the joy in people’s lives. As Honda continue to draw inspiration from the visionary ideas of our namesake, Soichiro Honda. He saw incredible power in the freedom of mobility and used his imagination to change the world. It is this mindset that guides Honda to help move people forward.

Born out of necessity the Global Chassis System gives Honda the ability to streamline its efforts and ease the burdens of daily life, by minimizing the number of unique chassis Honda has essentially increased its efforts in producing affordable vehicles and through it all, the goal never changed.

To create a safer, smarter world in which people experience the joy of mobility.

Honda has taken the “Power of Dreams” even further, bringing the thrills of WEC racing directly to its potential customers through the new “Purchase Program”.

From dreams to reality the HRi-LM02 (Honda Racing Initiative) aims to bring Honda to both the FIA World Endurace Championship and IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship competition in North America.

The HRi-LM02 has been designed by Honda R&D in Japan in collaboration with JAS Motorsport in Milan, Italy. The car’s development has been undertaken as a collaborative project over the past years that also includes HRC with over 85,000km of test mileage completed. An initial batch of 4 cars will be produced in time for the start of the 2025 race season.

Very Cool

This is what an in-house Honda LMH could (and should) look like - it’s even better than the actual Acura LMDH that’s currently competing in IMSA.

That’s surprising. I would love to see this in an actual WEC or IMSA race.

Is the wheelbase too short?

From what I’ve been told and read the wheel base is correct

Thank you

Thank you!

The wheelbase of the LM Hyper car is 3150mm

Le Mans Hypercar: LMH and LMDh 2024 guide this website has an introduction to the LMH and LMDH technical rules, I hope it will help you, although the content is not comprehensive

Close enough lmao

The visuals on the side will be much worse

A full rebuild would have to be done

Only for the LMDh the chassis has to be 3150 mm. However for a LMH the MAX wheelbase is 3150 mm, so its completely up to manufacturers what wheelbase they decide to use.

For example: the Peugeot 9X8 LMH uses a 3040 mm wheelbase.
