K20 powered Insight. I love this.

The builders say:
"The object was to build this and as OEM as possible, Meaning itís not a stripped out race car. The LHT way!

We have tried to cover every angle possible so make this a real streetcar. It has AC (Factory climate control), Power steering (Factory electric), ABS, S2000 cluster (100% operating), upgraded braking and suspension and a much stiffer chassis.

We stiffened the whole car by welding extra braces, as well as building a complete sub frame, which ties the whole front together, and course the whole thing is aluminum.
The mounts are Honda OEM mounts from various Honda Vehicles so the car is very smooth with no teeth chattering. In fact you canít feel it idle in the driver seat.

Now for numbers, with very little tuning the car is making over 200whp with a very quiet exhaust and tied with a JDM 6 speed transmission accelerates like a rocket. The car feels very tight and has great feel due the extra bracing and a custom alignment.

For the gas mileage folks, so far with very little tuning the car has averaged 48mpg with about 60% highway and the rest stop and go. This includes the 7 runs on the dyno. Iím confidant it will break 55+mpg once tuned. With the ability of the Hondata K-Pro we have had the car at 19-1 AF ratio with 40 degree of advance with no issues."

Awesome

It just goes to show that you don't always have to sacrifice performance for fuel efficiency.

My neighbor on the next street has one just like this (minus the decent engine :P)

I'll have to get a pic sometime.

Anywho, I'd sport it.

A modern-day CRX.

I love it so much.

Goes to show we need to start making lighter, smarter cars.

This is actually pretty damn cool. I thought it was stupid until I saw that they could still get 48+ mpg with all that power. I wonder what the emissions are though... :P

This is proof that hybrid technology is unnessecessary. 48 mpg with no hybrid bullshit, in a car that used to have hybrid bullshit. Over 260 true horsepower, to boot.
