Honda Reveals S660 Baby Drop-Top


Japanese car maker looks back to the 1960s with a new-age mini roadster.

Honda has revealed a production-ready version of its new baby roadster ahead of its debut at next month’s Tokyo motor show.

The S660 is a smaller – and long overdue - successor to its high-revving 50th anniversary present, the S2000, and revives the spirit of the Japanese car maker's original sports cars of the 1960’s such as the S600 and S800.

Honda has yet to release any official details of what lies under the S660's sharp-edged body, but it is clearly influenced by the EV-Ster concept car that debuted at the 2011 Tokyo show.

It is unlikely the S660 will feature the all-electric powertain from the EV-Ster, which had electric motors in each of the rear wheels, but its nomenclature suggests it uses the same 660cc turbo charged three-cylinder from the Japenese-only N-One minicar.

Honda Australia has yet to confirm whether the S660 will be added to its local lineup, but reports indicate Honda is evaluating a larger 1.0-litre engine for markets outside Japan.

Alongside the S660, Honda has also confirmed a near production version of its revived NSX will be displayed at the Tokyo show as well as a showroom-ready baby SUV based on the Urban SUV concept that was revealed at the Detroit motor show in January.
