There’s no question the S660 roadster is one of the coolest cars Honda makes, period.
Even in standard guise, the mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive Kei car sends our hearts racing, despite the fact that it only packs a 63hp 0.66-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine.
If you live in Japan, you can have the S660 in a multitude of special edition versions, the more recent of which is called Trad Leather. And if you like your S660 to look more old-school, the Neo Classic body kit inspired by the classic S600 completely transforms the tiny roadster.
While the Neo Classic treatment may not be everyone’s cup of tea, Honda has further tweaked it for the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon (January 11-13). The automaker imagined what an S660 Neo Classic race car would look like and it appears that designers went all out to create a striking package.
It’s called the Modulo Neo Classic Racer and it’s obviously a show car — at least until Honda decides to offer it as a body kit too. The aggressive-looking front fascia that mimics taped-off headlights is the car’s defining feature but the bolt-on fender flares and Kammback with prominent boot lid spoiler also contribute to the remarkable transformation of the Honda S660.
Exterior tweaks also include the front fender leather straps, race wheels shod with competition tires, and wing mirrors. Honda hasn’t yet offered a peek inside the cockpit but we’d expect to see a roll cage and racing seats in there.
We don’t know whether Honda has any plans with this body kit beyond the 2019 Tokyo Auto Salon but we sure hope we see the Modulo Neo Classic Racer on another occasion.
