"A midship concept full of revolutionary ideas."
The 4200R is a midship engine sports car concept that Isuzu displayed at the 1989 Tokyo Motor Show. The development theme was establishment of a sporty performance and image, in a traditional European taste. Lotus and Isuzu were connected at that time, both being in the GM group, and Shiro Nakamura who was with Isuzu (later changed to Nissan) worked together with a designer from Lotus to create a dynamic, elegant style.
It is notable that while being a midship layout car, it was designed to accommodate two adults and two children, and is practical enough to use for long drives. The transversely mounted engine was Isuzu's newly developed 4.2L, DOHC 32 valve V8 engine, and its light weight and high power was its strongpoint. There is an active suspension developed in conjunction with Lotus, and balanced both stability and ride quality. The interior contained a navigation system, a video deck, high performance audio system and even a fax machine.
The commercial sale of the 4200R combining high tech and sportiness was strongly desired by fans. Isuzu also prototyped a 3.5L, V12 DOHC engine, and performed test drives with it mounted in a Lotus F1. Isuzu went on to mount this engine in a midship, multipurpose car, the Isuzu Como, and displayed it at the Tokyo Motor Show of the same year.
However in 1993, Isuzu ceased the development and manufacture of all small passenger cars, and has focused only on commercial vehicles since 2002. The commercial sale of the 4200R is now just a fleeting mirage.
