Or so the title reads. :P

Would have loved for this to go into production.

That is all - Just a random find.

Apparently the 4wd system was used in the CR-V so must of just been a test-bed for that.

Yeah the whole idea of that car was to test the capabilities of new systems - mainly the 4wd and how well it could cope with all the power going through the wheels. That would have been such an awesome car if they put it into production though. It's a shame they didn't really in some ways. Can you imagine if they did, cars as we know it today might be totally different and some cars may never have been made the way they, or even at all!

That would have been a mental little thing! 4wd in one of those would've 0wned!

Still, I'd prefer a turbo over a supercharger any day of the week :lol:
