  • Description

    THE LONDON MOTOR SHOW OPENS TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) WITH A DIRECT CHALLENGE THROWN AT BRITISH AND EUROPEAN SMALL CAR MANUFACTURERS BY THE JAPANESE HONDA COMPANY.

    HONDA, WHO MADE THEIR MARK AS THE WORLD'S BIGGEST MAKERS OF MOTOR CYCLES, TURNED TO CAR MANUFACTURE ONLY FIVE YEARS AGO. TOMORROW THEY LAUNCH TWO NEW MODELS AIMED AT THE LUCRATIVE BRITISH MINI-CAR MARKET.

    TWO "SMALL" HONDA CARS ARE ON SHOW. THE SMALLER 354 cc ENGINED HONDA N.360, FIRST ANNOUNCED IN TOKYO A YEAR AGO, AND THE MORE POWERFUL HONDA N.600 WHICH WENT ON SHOW AT THE PARIS MOTOR SHOW.

    THE N.600 WILL SELL IN BRITAIN FOR 15-SHILLINGS LESS THAN THE POPULAR MINIS -- WITH HEATER AND OTHER EXTRAS INCLUDED.

    HONDA HAVE SET A SALES TARGET OF UP TO 30,000 CARS A YEAR WITHIN FIVE YEARS IN BRITAIN.

    IN ALL, 72 MAKES OF CARS FROM 14 COUNTRIES ARE ON SHOW AT THE LONDON MOTOR SHOW, WHICH IS OPEN FROM OCTOBER 18 TO THE 28TH.

    FROM EAST GERMANY, COMES THE WARTBURG KNIGHT AND NEARBY, THE VALIANT ESTATE CAR -- THE AUSTRALIAN VERSION OF THE POPULAR AMERICAN MODEL.

    AND IF IT'S THE DISTANT FUTURE YOU'VE GOT IN MIND, LAMBORGHINI OF ITALY HAVE ON SHOW THEIR FUTURISTIC MARZAL, WITH SEE-THROUGH DOORS AND ROOF.
