The Honda S660 is an ultra light mid-engined roadster with just 66 horsepower. It's fantastic, but also only available in Japan, because the rest of the world won't buy anything smaller than a Mazda Miata.

While we continue to envy the Japanese, let's have a look at Honda's answer to Daihatsu's fleet of kei car concepts at the Tokyo Auto Show. Needless to say, all of them are perfect, starting with Mugen's mini Chiron:
Called the GARU, it's an S660 with custom body parts all around and massive wheels. What more could you want?
Well, if the answer is cargo space, let me introduce you to the T880 mini truck concept!
Despite the name, it's not the latest Terminator, but rather a retro-futuristic version of Honda's trusty Acty van/truck. We believe Icon's Jonathan Ward is already on the case.
For even more off-road/sand dune capability, I would like to direct your attention towards the Vezel Gear, which is pretty much the best thing since a VW engine was first bolted into a plastic bath tub. Based on their subcompact crossover SUV, this is the Mitch Buchannon of Hondas.
Leaving the Japanese beaches only for an even more stylish entry into one of their megacities, Honda came up with the second generation of their also S660-based Neo Classic Prototype. It is what it says on the tin, really. Something I crave, and badly.
Now, please start preparing yourself for the Geneva Motor Show, where Honda will have nothing as quirky as these.
