At the Bring a Trailer auction in the USA, a unique 1966 Honda S600 convertible was sold for $80,000.

This car is unique because it belongs to the initial period of Honda's automotive manufacturing, a company known for producing motorcycles until 1963.

Initially, the company released the S500 model, and a year later, introduced an improved version - the S600, which became the brand's first car exported outside Japan.

The Honda S600 convertible, only 3.3 meters long and weighing 715 kg, is equipped with a 0.6-liter engine that produces 57 horsepower and can reach a top speed of 140 km/h thanks to a 4-speed manual transmission.

This pristine white vehicle, styled after the "Formula 1" racing cars of the Japanese brand, was restored and underwent a major engine overhaul, and its mileage at the time of sale was 87,000 kilometers.

In total, 11,284 such convertibles were produced, making each model quite rare and sought after by collectors, which explains the high sale price.

Previously, Erling Haaland and a friend made investments by purchasing an exclusive supercar, the Mercedes AMG One for 3.13 million euros, seeing this purchase as a prospective investment for the future.

We also wrote about the passing of Marcello Gandini, a legendary car designer responsible for creating such iconic Lamborghini models as the Miura, Diablo, and Countach, as well as being known as the inventor of "scissor" doors.
