The Street Sport Concept Ridgeline project from American Honda explores the sport truck possibilities of the new 2006 Ridgeline pickup. The front and rear bumpers have been restyled, incorporating concept LED fog lights in the front and an integrated tow hitch in the rear. An aerodynamic fixed tonneau cover features remote power operation for the lid and the tailgate. The exterior color is a custom Honda color called Asphalt Shock Metallic. Track is widened in front and rear, and 22-in. 2-piece wheels with 305/40R-22 tires fill out the fenders. The Street Sport Concept Ridgeline is lowered 1 in. with prototype Honda advanced performance springs and struts, and braking is augmented by six-piston Brembo front brakes and four-piston rear brakes. The interior is modified with custom suede and leather trim, Recaro seats in front and rear, and LED lighting accents.
