Honda has developed a “Twin Lever Steering” joystick system that allows a driver to push one stick and pull the other when turning, in the direction g-forces are pushing his body. Traditional steering wheels force the oppostie maneuver. The idea is to make this tiny sports car drive more like Honda’s road bikes, on which you can lean into the turns. There’s no way this cute little car will make it to production without a steering wheel, but we would love to try it out. Check out the photos of all the details in our gallery, and let us know what you think of the steering system and the differently colored driver’s seat.
