hell, it's already got a big ass spoiler on the trunk.

its already got a wing on the back, so maybe some underbody lights and a method of making the engines buzzy

And chrome engine accessories...

It's already got the oversized coffee-can exhaust..

looks like they're doing it on the assembly line.

I see they already have "HONDA" in big block letters on it.

Go ahead and stick a NOS sticker on it and a 5" exhaust pipe and BE DONE WITH IT!

Needs a flame job, fake cell phone antenna, and mini-spinners on the wheels.

That thing is nice looking though. I can't really picture Honda screwing it up. This'll probably put a dent into other jet manufacturers business.

You forgot the oversize tach on the dash.

Ass-backwards pilot's helmet.
Pilot seat that leans waaaay back and to the right.
Lots of rattling noises from the thumpin' bass.
More scoops that do nothing.
Funky decals, yo.
Pimp name on one side, ho name on the other.

I bet some noveau-riche mega-millioned urban musician will do it , with a paint job to match his Hummer2.

I spent 8 years working at the 2nd largest business jet mfg in the world (Raytheon Aircraft) and let me tell you, very few people took Honda seriously. Most would laugh at the mention, or simply ignored the press.

I think I know who's going to get the last laugh.

They've got something going for them if their gas turbine engines are comparatively as well built
as their piston driven ones.

That's the thing. Honda is not a car company, nor a motorcycle company, nor a ATV/powered equipment company.

Their core technology is the internal combustion engine. They were the first to use stratified and ultra lean combustion technology in production cars as early as the mid 70s. Remember the Accord and Civiv CVCCs? That's what they were.

Why does Honda show no interest in NASCAR? Because NASCAR engine technology is primitive. Why does Honda compete heavily in Formula 1 and CART? Because they learn a treasure trove of data about the basics of internal combustion engine performance under the most brutal conditions imaginable.

I will bet my left nut that ALL that Honda has learned about metallurgy, combustion control, manufacturing processes, and quality from F1 to lawnmowers has made its way into their aviation engines.

Honda will be a force to be reckoned with in the air before long. And I will watch them do to the US GA industry what they did to the US auto industry.

Remember when people used to laugh at Japanese cars? I tell you right now there are people laughing at that airplane. But they will cry if they don't learn.

I'm driving an Acura now, last car was a Lexus. When people ask me how I compare the vehicles my answer has been I'd love to put the Acura drive train in the Lexus. Now I know why I feel that way.

BAR Honda. Too bad Ford/Jaguar pulled out of F1. Ford could probably learn a thing or two from pushing the envelope with 18k+ reving racing engines. F1 is a hell of an expensive test bed though, but then so's a good war!

And for the most part its a POS, and a widowmaker as well. Yes, its fast, loud, and cool, but its single engine performance is mediocre, and it has a habit of killing its pilots when an engine fails.

I know pilot error plays a part, but this aircraft is notorious.
