How Much Would You Pay for a Honda S660 with MUGEN Parts?
Back in 2017, Honda Malaysia actually gave us a chance to try out the tiny, but exciting S660 in Japan. Our drive was short but memorable, and we ended up feeling like the car may have even sold in small quantities should it have been brought in under RM150,000. Sadly, for whatever reason, the car was just not brought in at all, most likely because it would have been taxed to a ridiculously high price.
Yet, once in a while we still see the odd Honda S660 being driven around the Klang Valley, most likely purchased through a parallel importer.
And now the S660 has some very special MUGEN parts to go with it. Which begs the question, how much would Malaysians be prepared to pay for a small, but fun Honda with specialised parts from M-TEC Co?
The parts that have been developed for the S660 include:
- more aerodynamic bumpers,
- newly designed forged aluminum wheel
- performance dampers
Other parts that will be added to the list for the S660 in the near future include:
- carbon front sports grilles, rear wings, aero bonnets, engine hoods, sports silencers, semi bucket seats
Here’s the press release translated from Japanese.
