HONDA S800 SPORTS

2-door 2-seater sports car/sports coupé.

Apart from reliability problems here, this was a remarkable Spridget/Spitfire competitor from Japan, with 70bhp (gross) from only 791cc. Engine was a motorcycle technology masterpiece, revving to 8000rpm and giving 95mph top speed. Hard suspension but good handling, front discs to keep things in control, all at right price but with cramped cockpit. Sales ended in '70. Promised 'cult' following never took off.
