Very Rare Car in the UK, Highly Desirable Collectors Item - Honda Beat convertible with very low mileage.
The Honda Beat is a rear wheel drive, mid-engined two-seat roadster kei car produced from May 1991 to February 1996. The Beat was the last car to be commissioned by Soichiro Honda before he died in 1991.
The design of the car originated from Pininfarina, who then sold the design plan to Honda. The Beat was one of many cars designed to take advantage of Japan's tax-efficient kei car class.
In typical Honda fashion, the Beat's engine did not utilize a turbocharger or supercharger. The 656 cc (40.0 cu in) engine was modified with the MTREC (Multi Throttle Responsive Engine Control) system, with individual throttle bodies for each of the three cylinders, to produce 64 PS (63 bhp) at 8100 rpm with an electronically limited top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph). Only a manual transmission was available. The MTREC design would filter down to the 1993 Honda Today kei car.
These cars have a huge cult following in Japan and there is a massive range of tuning equipment and accessories available. type in "Honda Beat PP1" on "YOU TUBE" to see track day racing and modification clips). Over here in the UK there are less than 50 of these cars which makes this car a fantastic investment opportunity as it will only increase in value over time.
Insuring these vehicles is no issue or problem and spares are readily available even from your local Honda dealer and there is a very good club with loads of advice, spares and help.
So if you're looking for something rare and collectable and a good investment potential this could be the car for you. However if you just want a huge adrenalin rush. plenty of attention and a permanent smile then look no further!
