Have you ever wanted to transport a fridge in your Type R but found the boot a bit lacking?

Well don’t fear because the team at Honda’s Product Engineering department in the UK has taken one of the hottest hot hatches and transformed it into a beaut ute.

Officially named Project P, they took a pre-production Type R and ditched the roof behind the B-pilliars, rear doors and back seats to make way for the ute bed.

Complete with a rollbar and an opening tailgate (which still includes that outrageous spoiler), it'll now fit two Honda lawnmowers.

Could this be coming to a Jim's Mowing near you? Could this be coming to a Jim's Mowing near you?

Under the skin everything remains unchanged, the turbo 2.0-litre four cylinder still produces 235kW/400NM and is connected to a six-speed manual.

Honda is also considering taking the Project P to the Nürburgring, aiming for the fastest front-wheel drive pickup truck lap record.

Would you like to see Honda put the Project P into production? Let us know in the comments below.
