The street car concept has been developed by Gordon Murray Design in Surrey, England.

Yamaha has been trying to enter the automobile world for some time. Recently at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show Yamaha presented a new car concept. The concept has been dubbed the Sports Ride by Yamaha.

Sports Ride is super lightweight with a weight of only 1,650 pounds. But the size of the Sports Ride is as big as a Mazda MX-5 Miata. The interior has been stripped-out and is similar to a Lotus and an Alfa Romeo 4C.

Sports Ride is a snappy little two-seat sports car. The car has been described having 153.5 inches long, 67.7 inches wide, and 46.1 inches high dimensions. The concept was designed by Gordon Murray in Surrey, England. 

Sports Ride is not Yamaha’s first street-car concept. The previous concept was called MOTIV and shown at the 2013 Tokyo Motor show. Sports Ride is even better and more appealing than MOTIV.

The rear-drive chassis of Sports Ride is composed of carbon fiber. According to GMD it is the first affordable high-volume carbon-fiber chassis structure. Sports Ride has brought the Formula 1 materials and technology for street cars. 

Yamaha did not reveal when the Sports Concept will be available in the market. Even the powertrain of the Sports ride concept was kept under wraps. Yamaha has an array of potent motorcycle engines which could be used in the concept. The Sports Ride concept is a look into the future when Yamaha will deal in cars.
