Honda cut­away

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This week - ❚ www.hon­das800s­portscar­

The Honda S800 Sports Car Club show­cased the ad­vanced tech­nol­ogy that went into the car’s diminu­tive pow­er­plant by dis­play­ing a cut­away en­gine.

Club chair­man John Tet­ley ex­plains: ‘The tech­nol­ogy Honda used in the S800’s en­gine com­pares favourably with that used in the su­per­cars of the day, such as the Lam­borgh­ini Miura. The Honda en­gine may only have a third of the cylin­ders of the Miura’s V12, but it revs higher and pro­duces more power per litre.’
