We're totally digging the fact that the hybrid concept sports car cold war between Honda and Toyota just became a little bit more warm with the introduction and reveal of Honda's latest concept β€” the Honda CR-Z. It's a look at both the next-generation of hybrid technology and exterior design for the Japanese automaker β€” wrapped up in a lightweight sports car with massive amounts of torque. The outside's supposed to look "Futuristic and Dynamic" via a compact design that looks, you know, like "futuristic" and stuff. True, we've no idea what could be powering this hybrid beast of a sports car concept, but we didn't have any idea what hybrid system was really under the hood of the Toyota FT-HS from last year's Detroit Auto Show, but we thought it was pretty cool nonetheless. Likewise, the Honda CR-Z looks just as mean. We like.
