Description

This 1973 Honda N600 has been restored around 3 years ago and is in excellent aesthetic and mechanical condition, with original manuals and duplicate keys.

Certified as a vehicle of historic interest and in impeccable condition.

The Honda N600 was developed simultaneously with the N360. Unlike the N360, designed for the Japanese domestic market, the N600 was primarily targeted at export markets such as the USA and Europe, where the highways required higher speeds. It was the first Honda model to be officially marketed in the USA.

Both met the dimensional regulations for Japanese kei cars, but since between 1955 and 1975 the maximum cylinder capacity allowed for kei cars was 360cc, the N600 was only marketed in Japan for a mere 6 months, between June 1968 and January 1969, with around 1,500 copies sold, as it did not qualify for any of the tax and insurance exemptions granted to kei cars.

At just 3.1m in length, 595kg and a 598cc two-cylinder engine with 38hp, the N600 was able to reach 125km / h (10km / h more than the N360) and did 0-100mh / h in 19 seconds (less 10 seconds than the N360), performances superior to the Mini 850 and very similar to some 1100cc available on the European market.

The models from 1973 onwards benefited from a small power increase to 45hp, which allowed it to reach 130km / h and made about 18.5 seconds from 0-100km / h.
