How the Honda S600 Changed the Way We Looked at Japanese Cars

Although the economy-focused N600 was one of the first Honda automobiles to go on sale in the United States, the Japanese company made a name for itself with another small car, this time a roadster: the S600.

Essentially an updated version of the S500 and earlier S360, the S600 was powered by a 600cc inline-four good for over 50 horsepower and capable of a relatively unheard-of-at-the-time 8500 rpm redline.

To read more about the spiritual predecessor of the iconic S2000—as well as insight into Honda's unique history—head over to Classic Motorsports to get an up-close look at a pristine S600 in the care of legendary car guy Jay Leno.
