Company Yamaha is well known primarily as a manufacturer of motorcycles, bike appliances, musical instruments, industrial equipment (especially robots and other high-tech applications) and so on, so many will be surprised by the fact that this great and creative Japanese company, apart from everything else has also ambitions for becoming a futuristic sports car manufacturer.
If we look back into the history, we can recall that Yamaha has participated in the creation of the legendary sports car in late 60-70s – Toyota 2000GT. Later, in the early nineties it emphasized its development to be able to equip a futuristic concept OX9911 with a powerful V12 engine.
Today, the independent Spanish designer Albert Rosello, proposes a project called R-Car, which could become a new landmark in the history of Yamaha. The author gives the following characteristic description to the concept car: “This is a supercar with the soul of a superbike ». To be able to claim that, there needs to be a good reason, and such a reason exists, it is the fact that with the weight of 1100 kg, the car can be equipped with an engine capacity of 900 hp.
