- Desirable Series 1, one of the first to be imported into France
- Comprehensive recent work
- Brilliant and original

This Honda S800 is probably one of the very first to be imported into France. Indeed, the date on the registration documents, 1 January 1967, corresponds to that of one of the first batches to arrive in France.
It was purchased in September 2018 by its current owner, a Honda dealer until 2020 and a lifelong fan of the S800. It previously belonged to a collector from Toulouse, who had restored it on a beautiful original base. After the acquisition by our demanding collector, the car has been serviced: the brake system was checked, the seals and rings of the rear axle refurbished to prevent leaks, the carburetors checked and adjusted and new spring/ shock absorber combinations fitted. The body and interior are in very good condition, the original black leather has a nice patina.
When it was launched, the Honda S800 stunned testers from the automotive press, who had never seen a passenger car capable of exceeding 8000 rpm and whose specific power approached 100bhp/ liter, a value reserved for the best competition engines. These exceptional characteristics came from Honda's experience with motorcycles and resulted in a racy and lively car whose performance was aided by limited weight.
The example we are offering beautifully transcribes the qualities of this very attractive machine.
