Jay Leno owns countless vehicles, and that includes the quirky Honda Z600 from the 1970s. This two-door hatchback was made by Honda from 1970 to 1974, but only available in America until 1972. Power comes from a 598cc SOHC engine making 36 hp, mated to either a 4/5-speed manual gearbox or 2-speed Hondamatic transmission.
Step inside, and you’ll find seating for two adults, with a very small rear section, and a glass hatch sporting a black plastic surround that opened to a shallow cargo area. Beneath the cargo area. there’s a compartment accessible via a lid beneath the number plate that holds the spare wheel and tools. A total of 918 Honda Z600s were sold in Europe, most of them in France and Switzerland, although a large number did make their way to Germany where the engine was downgraded to a 242cc to be classified as a ‘Class IV’ vehicle.
