As if the Honda e didn’t boast enough curb appeal already, its maker has now unveiled a Limited Edition available for the first time in ‘Premium Crystal Red.’ Ooft.

“The Honda e Limited Edition is simply lovely,” said Verstappen, and definitely not a press officer making up something on his behalf. “It has funky looks, a compact design, and is fun to drive. It’s a great electric urban vehicle.”

Verstappen is said to have driven the e before the Emilia Romagna GP at Imola earlier this year—a race he went on to dominate with a maximum points haul. Maybe he was promised a discount if he won?
