HPD Street Performance – Street Projects – HPD CR-Z Hybrid R Concept

Background

What started as a concept among other CR-Z concept show cars for SEMA 2010 evolved into a car-show sensation throughout 2011. When SEMA planning began in mid-2010, American Honda asked HPD to produce two CR-Z cars for display. The first was a race car. The second was a high-performance concept car—the HPD CR-Z Hybrid R Concept was born.

Purpose

The purpose behind the HPD CR-Z Hybrid R Concept was to bring fun back to the Honda production-car lineup. The HPD CR-Z Hybrid R Concept showcased aggressive styling, courtesy of the HRA (Honda R&D Americas) Design Studio, and increased GO, STOP and TURN performance, courtesy of HPD. In December 2010, HPD took the increased performance from the Hybrid R Concept and transferred it to two HPD CR-Z Racers that competed in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill event, marking the first time a hybrid production-based car had been raced.

Latest

After traveling the car-show circuit throughout 2011, the HPD CR-Z Hybrid R Concept now resides at HPD.
