In Game DescriptionEdit

In October 1970, the first example of a lightweight 'specialty K-car' - the 'Z' went on the market. The Z utilizes the same floor-pan and mechanics as the N360, Honda's first K-car, but with a sporty body design, incorporating a slanted front window, longer front nose, and a unique rear window.

The body is a 2 door, but the rear windows with the black trim, called "Underwater goggles" by some, opened up, and the car could serve as a sort of 2-door wagon. Although sold as a 4 seater, cabin space is crowded (due to the longer front nose) and the rear seats could only realistically be used for kids or for emergencies. As such, it should really be considered a '2+2 seater'.

It shares the same engine as the NIII360 (which was a minor update model of the N360): a 360cc air-cooled SOHC inline-2, of which there were 31 HP single carburetor and 36 HP twin carburetor models.

The suspension is common with the NIII360 as well, but in comparison to the NIII360, it is tuned to be harder to meet the desired sporty characteristics for the model.

As for the brakes, most models were fitted with front/rear drum brakes. Five versions of the Z were offered: the "ACT" for those with active lifestyles; the "PRO" for future-loving professionals; the "TS" for the unique and sports oriented; the "GT" for those who could afford luxury; the "GS" for the macho tough guy with driving skill. Of all these, the top grade GS was the first K-Car ever to be equipped with 5-speed MT, plus front disc brakes and radial tires.

In November 1971, the base car changed from the NIII360 to the 1st generation Life. The engine became a 36 HP water-cooled SOHC inline-2, and the wheelbase was extended 3.1 inches.
