It was designed by Takuya Yura, and was originally supposed to be a single seater. Featuring a carbon fiber chassis and the same OX99 engine as the F1 car, thus providing the closest experience of a pure racing car to the consumer market.

Bonus OX99-11 Feature
Unfortunately, Japan was in the midst of a financial crisis during the early 1990s, which led Yamaha to believe it wouldn’t be able to find any customers for the car. Why? It was expected to have an $800,000 MSRP, or $1.4-million USD today. So, the project was delayed until 1994, right before it was cancelled. However, a total of three prototypes were built, and of all the OX99-11 supercars made, one is green, another one is red and the third came in black.
