Concept Corner: Honda S660
Honda have just announced the super cute mid engined S660 Concept, which previews at the forthcoming Tokyo Motor Show.
According to industry insiders it will go into production for the Japanese market in 2015 – though a more powerful version for Europe is possible. Apparently it may bear a resemblance to the 2011 EV-Ster concept. The electric drive of that design study has been ditched, here in favour of a three-cylinder petrol unit, which apparently will crank out a rather impressive 64bhp.
Honda is, it seems, looking at other more powerful engines for the European market, and the rumour is that a 1.0-litre turbo with more than 100bhp is the favoured choice. In a roadster that tips the scales at between 850-900kg – so there’s a mouthwatering prospect of the first truly chuckable Honda since the much maligned S2000.
It’s SO good to see Soichiro‘s company getting back involved in fun-packed cars…
