1966-1971 HONDA S800 specifications

1966-1971 HONDA S800 specifications Classic and Performance Car

In true Honda tradition the S800’s party piece was under the bonnet. Only Honda would create a 791cc engine capable of producing 70bhp at 8000rpm, giving the sports car an impressive top speed of 97mph. This impressive performance was not at a cost of poor fuel economy, which came in at 35mpg. Available as a coupé or a roadster the car was loved by many, but with a shade over 10,000 sales worldwide, it was not a massive success. The S800 was the last Honda to wear the S badge until the S2000 in 1999. Add 50% for the prices of convertibles.
