A young engineer has brushed up with all his heart and soul. and refined by young engineers... 30 years after its release, it still shows its charm. JDM Kei Sport's masterpiece is a unique car that will make an enthusiast's garage life more wonderful...!
In the course of my coverage activities in Enso’s forest, I meet people of various ages and occupations. These encounters are truly fascinating, and they also provide me with a great deal of energy.
This time, the client is a very young engineer with a lot of experience in racing karts….
He is a young engineer…but his insight on cars is first class due to his extensive karting experience….
He has been racing karts since he was a child, and has won awards at various races around the world. He is so skilled that he has competed in the same field as the most famous racers of the day, and his insight and perception of the automobile is so great that every single word he says is a source of amazement. He is a man of great insight and knowledge about cars, and his every word is always followed with “How wonderful! He also has such sensitivity that he can repair parts that do not exist in old cars by using a 3D printer. He is not only a classic enthusiast! He is a young enthusiast who makes us think of a bright future….
He enjoys driving the one and only Honda Beat while maintaining it himself…. He took his time to find a solid running car with no accident history, drove it until he was satisfied with it, and fixed it up. He repeated such a process repeatedly.
The result of this process is that we will introduce the various points in the latter half of this article, but it is an individual that we can see has been sublimated into a beat that has been very well taken care of.
The exterior of the car had a certain amount of wear and tear at the time of purchase, as driving was the most important factor in the selection process…. From a distance, it looks clean, but when you look closer, you can see some rough spots…. This is something that we hope the next owner will enjoy since the car is already 30 years old….
Lightweight and rigid chassis for handling and high RPM and a car to enjoy the exhaust sound... The masterpiece of JDM Kei Sports has been refined to this level by young engineers. The masterpiece of JDM Kei Sports has been boiled down to this level by a young engineer...!

Warranty card for each product
He has been studying and enjoying cars up to this point, but he has a dream to concentrate on racing karts again…. He has decided to let go of his beloved car…. The car is a Beat that has been well cared for, but still has a lot of fun to be brushed up in the future. Please check out the video for more details….
After the interview...
The Honda Beat was sold from 1991 to 1996 as a revolutionary light sport car filled with many “firsts”, and only 33,892 units were produced in a mere 5 years. While many of these cars have become endangered species in Japan, the majority of them are still enthusiastically loved by JDM enthusiasts and other enthusiasts overseas, even after 30 years have passed.
It is the only naturally aspirated light car engine to achieve 64ps, which was the voluntary regulation value, and its maximum output is generated at 8100rpm, which is an extremely high rpm range.
The high-revving engine, which is Honda’s specialty, is laid out in a midship position. A small, lightweight engine with natural and sharp response is mounted midship on a rigid open monocoque body! This is not a bad thing.
The feeling of power that explodes the more you turn the engine, inviting the rider into a world of sheer pleasure. You can safely open the throttle to full throttle on public roads, and enjoy driving at the limit of your ability by swinging freely on winding roads. If you are an enthusiast, this is the vehicle you want to have by your side….
A young engineer has put his heart and soul into brushing up the car...
JDM Kei Sport's masterpiece, which still shows its charm 30 years after its release.
This is a unique car that will make an enthusiast's garage life the best it can be.
A unique car...!

What is the Supreme and Best (Supremacy) Estate Sale…?
Estate Sale®︎Spremacy is the Japanese version of the North American cultural estate sale, which introduces cars that are full of the owner’s feelings and thoughts through manuscript preparation based on interviews, and organizes goods and minds.
Unlike a cheap purchase where nothing is left behind, we guide and mediate the owner to honestly express his/her feelings and pass the car on to the next generation while keeping the memories in their hearts.
We conduct detailed interviews with the current owner, including past maintenance records and repair history, and cover whether or not the vehicle has been in an accident. If there is a history of major accidents, or if the current owner’s ownership history is extremely short and we do not know the details, we will decline the interview.
