The Japanese market has some really interesting and fun-looking small cars or “Kei cars”. One of them is the Honda S660 roadster. The company has just revealed a more sportier version called S660 Modulo X, only for the Japanese market of course.
To begin with, the S660 Modulo X is available in an exclusive silver metallic exterior paint finish along with white, gray and blue colors. Contributing to the sporty looks are reworked front and rear bumpers, Bordeaux Red soft-top, active spoiler, 15-inch front and 16-inch rear aluminium wheels in stealth black, blacked-out wheel nuts among other changes.
The black interiors get genuine leather upholstered sports seats, genuine leather wrapped steering wheel, Modulo X instrument cluster, titanium shift knob, Bordeaux Red carpet mats and some generous Bordeaux Red accents. The door pads get carbon fibre looking trims as well.
As the name suggests, the Kei car is powered by a 660 cc 3-cylinder turbocharged engine delivering the same 64 hp and 104 Nm of torque in order to stay in the “Kei” category of Japan. The engine can be paired either with a CVT + paddle shifters or a 6-speed manual transmission.
However, the car’s suspension features 5-stage damping force adjustment. Also included are drilled rotors and sports brake pads.
The S660 Modulo X is priced at ¥ 2,850,120 (includes 8% consumption tax) or about Rs 17.80 lakh.
