Honda S660 Modulo Photos Leaked



From the article:
The white prototype with stripes is a S660 Modulo, essentially the Honda equivalent of Nismo. This body kit enhances the sporty appearance of the car even further. And get this: it even has a pop-up rear wing.

17 pictures and full article

The back is pretty bad. The front really isn't all that bad, and frankly, I can forgive the back end since I like the idea of the car. Doubt we'll ever get it here, even with a bigger engine. It would be a tough sell, but I might buy one. I am a huge fan of the original Beat and have even considered importing one.

I don't like the material in that rear diffuser/bumper.
If that black plastic is the same as the stuff that populates the front air dam/fake brake vents of the Civic coupe, then it has roughly the same feeling as the plastic on takeout sushi trays.

It's ok to make a cheap car - just don't make it so damn obvious...

Jesus, I didn't think there was any way it could look worse...and then a shot from the rear. Blow that up and start again Honda. You can do better.
