ABS is a fantastic aid to driver safety, but only if you know what it does and how to use it in emergencies – which many people don’t. The key benefit of the system is that it allows maximum braking force to be applied, yet the driver can still steer the car to avoid a collision. All you need to do to allow the ABS to work is to push the brake pedal flat to the floor, and the electronics will do the rest. Just remember that the steering will still work.

As for such a car’s real-life implications, we don’t want to indulge in too much wishful thinking. But there has been plenty of talk of a new Honda-badged sports car in recent years. We first entertained the possibility of Honda’s mid-engined Porsche Cayman fighter in 2015, while more recent rumors have centered around a revived S2000 roadster, possibly with hybrid power. At this point, we can only live out our fantasies in the video-game world and hold out hope that this virtual Honda is more than just talk.
