I really used to like the Honda N360, mainly because I just didn’t get it as a car.
The modern interpretation is the N-One and re-created here by Tomica. Nice model, but it is a shame that the rear lights are not given any treatment. At least it gets an opening boot (which is something that Mattel fail to do).
The Honda N-One (corporately styled “Honda N-ONE”) is a kei car produced by Honda for the Japanese market. It was previewed at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show and went on sale on November 1, 2012. With the Honda N-Box, it is part of a renewed lineup of Kei class city cars. The use of the letter “N” in the name was used by Honda for the late 1960s and 1970s Honda N360.
It features styling reminiscent of the Honda N360 of 1969-1972, and incorporates Honda’s newest DOHC 3 cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission launched in 2011 with the N-Box. It is marketed as a premium vehicle and incorporates standard features uncommon for its class.
