A blast from the past

You can be forgiven for not recognising the shape right away, the Honda S600 Coupe might have been a common sight back in the mid sixties but these days they’re getting rather rare. This particular example is proudly owned by Phil Penny and has been modified to compete in the sport compact drag racing.

The car is a far cry from the original that only managed 57hp from its 606cc engine and had a top speed of 140kph. Phil’s S600 is powered by Toyota’s 2JZ straight six, and capable of producing 2000hp. The boost is controlled by Turbosmart’s e-Boost2, Power-Gate60 and a Race Port.

Phil is confident the car is capable of seven second quarters and we can’t wait to see it in action again!
