1967-1972 HONDA N360/N600 specifications


Honda’s first car designed to compete in Japan’s Kei-Class was a fair attempt at bettering Issigonis’ Mini. It was launched in 360cc form in 1966 and featured an advanced specification that allowed it to punch well above its weight – its 354cc air-cooled OHC two-cylinder engine pushed out 31bhp, and it handled tidily thanks to well-engineered FWD chassis. In 1968, the N360 was upgraded to N600 and blessed Honda’s buzz-box with an impressive 85mph top speed. Despite being a technical miracle, it failed to sell in big numbers in Europe – but prized today by collectors.
