One-off concept gets track-based modification.
Honda Cars India revealed a track-focused Honda Jazz Racing Concept at the Auto Expo 2016 today. It’s likely a one-off concept built for attraction.
The Honda Jazz Racing Concept features sporty body kit, towing handle in the front bumper, red stripe vinyl, Bridgestone Potenza racing tires shodding 5-spoke alloy rims, front splitter, side extensions, carbon fiber accents, fixed rear wing, and a single pipe exhaust tip.
Inside, the Jazz Racing Concept is stripped to the bare minimum. The rear seats and trim have been removed, while the fabric front seats are replaced with Recaro bucket seats. The steering wheel has also been ditched for an alcantara upholstered MOMO steering wheel, and the center console features a kill switch. A roll cage is also fitted within the cabin for protection.
Being a concept, details on the powertrain do not exist. The regular Jazz is available with a 1.5-liter i-DTEC engine producing 99 bhp and is mated only to a 6-speed manual gearbox, while the petrol variant has a 1.2-liter i-VTEC unit producing 90 bhp and is mated to a 5-speed manual with an optional CVT automatic.
