Type R - How Honda Got Fast | Up to Speed

Thanks to CarParts.com for sponsoring today’s episode. Click here bit.ly/carpartsdotcom1 to check out their massive inventory of car parts.

►►Check out STOCKY: www.kickstarter.com/projects/...

Honda Motor Co. made its name selling obsessively-engineered economy cars, but that’s only part of the story. Honda dreamed of racing victory. Then they made it happen. And then they brought what they’d learned to their road cars under an iconic red “R”. Join James Pumphrey as he meets the dreamers behind the NSX-R, the Civic Type R, and the Integra that changed the world’s perception of front-wheel-drive forever. This is the hidden history of Japan’s most influential badge, Honda Type R!

Huge thanks to Carl Pulley and all the fine folks at Acura, American Honda, Honda UK, and Honda Japan, we literally couldn’t have done this without you.

Props to Ryan Hailey for editing this episode. He's a really hilarious dude with the best “horse-in-space” voice in the biz. Here's a link to his channel: kgkey.info

    I can see this being one of the more hype east collectibles if u keep doing more model of different cars then even different color variants of each model and then have some rare ones to collect and even try to make a sticky base with a plastic top that the models can just go on and off of but stay firm so u can put them in your car. Or to make it more practical make smaller models for the car and have bigger ones also for at home or back window. I just see this going very far with the right strategy

    Can I also add that Honda during the 80s revolutionized the V4 engine in motorcycles, which had only previously been available in the premium bikes such as the Ducati Panigale. They provided a powerful engine that was used in races, but simultaneously provided the VF500, a regular man’s racing machine.

    This is off topic, but still funny I think. My first job (1997 I think) was as a mechanic at a Honda dealership, I went to pick up a work order and in the shop I overheard an elderly man talking with his son. -See dad, these prices are appalling! I buy spares for a third of the price! That's why I drive a Volvo. -Well, the spare part prices doesn't concern me much, since I don't need them. That's why I drive a Honda. (I'm Swedish, guess Volvo parts are expensive in the US but they´re dirt cheap here)
