HONDA S800

Sports 2-seater, sports coupè.

Intoxicating little bomb, with a tiny inclined hemi-head, four-carb, roller-bearing engine pushing out 70bhp at 8000rpm. Torsion-bar ifs, unservo'd front discs, separate chassis and a potential of around 100mph. UK-available from '67, by which time chain drive to independently-sprung rear wheels has been replaced by orthodox live back axle, located by trailing arms and coil/damper units. Excellent club, and highly impressive support from Honda.
