Honda S600


We love Honda. Every car they have made seems intelligent, creatively rendered and the right side of quirk. And the little S600 is a high water mark in Honda-ism, in our opinion.

With the demise of the S2000, looking at this makes us ache for Honda’s much awaited rediscovery of its sports heritage with the arrival of the new NSX.

Launched in 1964, The S600 it was powered by an efficient little 600cc engine that could wind it up to 90MPH: it weighed only a shade over 700KG in the roadster version – a light, nippy and simple triumph – and the fastback was an interesting counterpoint to the ragtop – like a shrunken, bizarro E-type for the young aspiring sarariman.

Picture this in the garage this summer. Delectable.
