Suzuki unveils concept roadster inspired by the brand’s motorcycles

Japanese company Suzuki and students at the Italian private design school Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) have jointly created a concept roadster, which they call Misano.

The idea behind the project was to combine Suzuki’s prowess in building motorcycles and cars into a single car, and the concept was named after the Italian race track.

The roadster turned out to be quite compact – 4 meters long and 1 meter high. For comparison, the latest Miata is 3.9141 meters long. The motorcycle-style passenger seat was located behind the driver’s seat, not next to it.

Car design is a mix of curves and hard edges. The headlights are S-shaped, reminiscent of the Suzuki brand emblem. Dark body diluted with copper inserts. Dark wheels also have this color scheme.

The space for the passenger and driver is asymmetrical, and the other side of the body contains the battery and the luggage compartment. Unfortunately, the interior was not shown in detail, it is reported that there is a handle for driving the car, not a steering wheel. It is also unknown what kind of power plant the car received.

They do not plan to start production of Misano, as it was a design work. Although, looking at Suzuki’s current lineup, the company has a gap in the range for the sports roadster.
