I want one. Drool. Alas... Honda doesn't think we're worthy. They did consider an export 1.0L S1000 version of the S660 at one point but that went nowhere.

Great list but with the LC500 in there why not also mention the original SC/Soarer Z30? Or the Chaser Tourer V and Mark 2 IRV performance sedans? Or the FR-S/GT86? Or the original IS-F?
