Honda S800 Roadster MKII

High-res photos and a VIDEO walkaround on my website, click the link or Google Shmoo Automotive.

This is the third S800 Roadster I've had in stock since last August. I'm told that this car is a recent import and spent most of its life in a Norwegian Honda dealership, but originally a UK car.

It's not a concourse car, but a solid, running vehicle. No rust and a pretty car. The paintwork is even in colour but could do with a mop and detail, or a full repaint if you want the car perfect. It looks good from 10ft as you can see from the photos, the interior is in nice condition overall. Starts on the button.

For those who are unaware of the S800 model, here's a brief history:

The Honda S800 was a sports car produced by Honda in the 1960s.

Introduction: The S800 was introduced in 1965 as a successor to the Honda S600. It was designed to be a small, lightweight, and sporty car.

Engine: The S800 was powered by a 791cc inline-four engine, which was notable for its high-revving capability. It featured four carburettors and could produce around 70 horsepower, making it one of the first production cars to reach the much-vaunted 100 hp per litre.

Performance: With its lightweight construction and spirited engine, the S800 had excellent performance for its time. It could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 11 seconds and had a top speed of over 100 mph (160 km/ h).

Body Styles: The S800 was available in various body styles, including a convertible and a coupe. The convertible version is particularly well-remembered for its sporty and open-top driving experience.

Production: Honda produced the S800 until 1970. During its production run, it underwent various updates and improvements, including a more refined interior and better handling.

Racing Success: The S800 also had success in motorsports, including winning its class at the 1968 24 Hours of Nürburgring, demonstrating its performance and durability.

Legacy: The Honda S800 is considered a classic among Honda enthusiasts and collectors. It played a significant role in establishing Honda's reputation for producing high-revving and well-engineered engines.

Collectibility: Due to its limited production and historical significance, well-preserved Honda S800 models are sought after by collectors, and they often command high prices in the classic car market.

The S800 remains a symbol of Honda's early engineering excellence and commitment to producing fun and sporty vehicles.
