Honda is bringing its Skydeck concept for a debut at Tokyo, and while there is tiny to say about it in way of powertrain or performance, the concept is a total show off. Front doors on the Skydeck are scissors, the rear doors are sliders, and when both of them are open, we get a good view of the minimalistic-looking beauty of the interiors.
