Honda S660 Kei Sportscar Is a Baby McLaren with Lots of Cool Details

Honda S660 Kei Sportscar Is a Baby McLaren with Lots of Cool Details - Photo GalleryReports are coming in from Japan that Honda has revealed pre-production prototypes of its upcoming S660 kei sportscar. Just imagine something the size of a Fiat 500, slightly smaller in fact, but packed with sharp edges and supercar-like lines.
The Japanese media is calling it a baby S2000, but we think it has more in common with Ferraris and McLarens when it comes to design. Thanks to local website Car.Watch, we can show you a few of the details that make this one of the coolest things Honda has ever made.
For example, from the back, you can see that it has a large centrally-mounted exhaust pipe that's going to remind people of the Aventador. The roof is basically a targa top and behind it, there's a window that goes up and down, like on a 650S.
The engine is at the back and sits underneath one of the most amazing decks we've seen for a sub-100hp car. Meanwhile, the front and rear bumper designs are similar to those of the new NSX hybrid, which is not a coincident.
The white prototype with stripes is a S660 Modulo, essentially the Honda equivalent of Nismo. This body kit enhances the sporty appearance of the car even further. And get this: it even has a pop-up rear wing.
Like all kei cars sold in Japan, the Honda S660 is restricted in terms of engine, power and dimensions. Under that rear hatch is a 660cc engine making exactly 64 PS, the maximum allowed by law. It's linked to either a 6-speed manual or a CVT. Rumor has it the S600 will be exported with a new 1-liter turbo engine making around 130 hp to other markets, but our source says that number is closer to 100 hp. Remember, this car weighs about half as much as a VW Golf, so it's not built to handle that much power
