The original Honda Insight is one of the world's most extraordinary cars. Boasting an all-aluminium body and incredible aerodynamics, the Insight was also a full hybrid. When released, it was the world's most fuel-efficient car - and by a huge margin. This book looks at the anatomy of the Insight, and its modification. The modifications range from the very simple (improving the quality of the gear shift by changing the knob) to the most complex (fitting programmable engine management and a turbo) - and everything in between. It also covers what you need to do to keep the high voltage battery alive, and how you can add manual control to the Integrated Motor Assist electric motor. Written by a hands-on owner who is also a former automotive journalist, this book is a must-have for anyone with a first generation Insight, or anyone interested in the history of automotive technology.
