(below) The Ultimate kei-car ? – The Honda S660 Mugen – Yes !!
The mid-engined, 2015 Honda S660 targa topped roadster takes the kei-car genre to new heights. At 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).
A far cry from the Suminoe ‘ F l y i n g F e a t h e r ‘ of 1955 . . .
. . . with 350cc / 2-cyl / 12.5 bhp & 60 kph (37 mph) !!
