The mid-engined, 2015 Honda S660 targa topped roadster takes the kei-car genre to new heights.  At a starting price of around ¥1,917,707 (£12,000) for the standard model, the Mugen style and tuning parts can lift this figure to around ¥3,355,987 (£21,000) !!  The transverse mid-engined, rear-wheel drive 3-cylinder 660cc motor pushes out 47kW (63hp) with 104Nm (77 lb ft) of torque and uses either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT with paddle-shift and has a limited top speed of 140 kph (87 mph).
