Replacement for the S600 model, the Honda S800 was introduced at the 1965 Tokyo Motor Show to compete against the likes of FIAT 850 Spider, Triumph Spitfire, MG Midget, etc.
By 1967 this model was the fastest 1-litre engine production car in the world. The 791 cc engine car produced about 70 hp and could do 150 km/hr run.
This scale model is an exact replica of the original model released in 1968.
It is also an exact replica of the original DINKY TOYS, a brand first sold in 1934. The manufacturer has tried to recreate the old-world magic by retaining the same features on each metal model as well as its box.
Dinky Toys were sold in India until 1955 when they were imported. Then in 1963 Meccano (owners of the brand) sold their factory to a firm in Calcutta called S. Kumar & Co. who started producing them locally. But because the finishing of these products were so poor they were sold as NICKY products.
