The 2006 Honda Athena SR

October 2005

A "Concept Car" is a design for a car... a prototype, which is never intended for mass production, per se, but rather to demonstrate and test out certain concepts and design principles which may find their way INTO mass production models. As such, designers can be somewhat more audacious in the creation of their concept cars, and are indeed encouraged to do so.

This, then, is my stab at creating a concept car. A new design philosophy, a new athsethic mold into which my ideas on the rebellious slap in the face of aerodynamics and ergonomics can be poured. Make no mistake. I would LOVE to see an e-mail in my in-box from Honda saying "Mr. Littler, we are extremely interested in including your Athena in our 2006 line", but I'm not holding my breath.

"I'm just shutting my eyes... and daring to dream".
