Supposedly a forerunner to the Griffon by Carrozzeria Watanabe, this one was named Flying Pegasus.
With its steeply raked windscreen and sharp GT styling it reminds me of the Fairthorpe TX-GT.

The Honda S600, or so it is believed.

Just for fun - the Watanabe and the Fairthorpe.
They are from the same year too.

Not that I know of.

Glad to notice we are thinking on the same level when Watanabe's creations are discussed!
(I am becoming a fan)

It has indeed, but there are small differences (design of the hood, bulges of the wings etc.) that makes the Pegasus 2 more appealing to me.
Would like to see it from different angles, but the posted pic is the only one I know, too. :sorry:

Current pics available!!!
(it's still hard to tell what this car is called, actually. Griffon or "Flying Pegasus"?)

Fooled around with the Google translator. And was successful on some Japanese pages. Where else? :) (BTW: Asian fonts must be installed!)
