Default Honda S800 rhd Coupe

I'm starting to look around for one of these as a Sunday fair weather toy
Less than 100 in UK ASFAIK so rare as hell and expensive 15-20k Gbp.

Just love the noise they make and the looks.
Quite a lot of the G1 Insight in it as well.
Light weight, sleek body etc.

I want the silver one

Honda Beat sound totally illegal and fab at legal looking speeds, probably easier to find too - soft top adds a new dimension to motoring.

I agree with you on the S800 very sweet looking little car and less weight than an Insight. 9000rpm in a 1960's road car WOW!

No wonder it can hit 9k rpms. 800cc in a four cylinder? They must look like model pistons!

Don't think I've ever seen one of those in the US.

I had a 1985yamaha FZ-750 motorcycle. 750cc 4 cylinder. Redline was around 11k, rev limiter kicked in at 11,500 if I remember correctly.

Default How many left!

Just checked and only 79 S800's in the UK. 52 on the road and 27 on Sorn (Laid up)

That's compared to 218 G1's on the road and 29 on Sorn.

The S800 is a lovely car. Have you also considered the earlier S600 convertible? Smaller engine but only 715kg.

It is a lovely little car. The owners must have an internet presence. Joint in so you can track the few in GB. Surely some older gent will have his passed along one day
