‘Racing improves the breed’ may be the oldest cliché in the book, but it’s a basic rule of thumb for Honda. The same passionate commitment CO quality and high-tech performance shown on the racetrack applies to every Honda car.
Throughout the great Grand Prix successes of the ’80s and early ’90s, Honda regularly moved its engineers between the racing campaign and the production line in order to infuse the whole company with racing know-how.
The fabulous NSX is the obvious example. Ayrton Senna had a hand in the development of the only supercar that was as easy to drive as a super-mini.
But you don’t need the thick end of £70,000 to enjoy the benefits of Honda’s racing experience The Civic, Prelude and Accord ranges are powered by engines as advanced and efficient as those of any track car.The company’s VTEC power plants combine the best of all worlds: tractable and economical at low speeds, yet lively and powerful at high revs.
The Accord Type-R has quickly won a reputation as a touring car racer for the road, while the limited edition Jordan Honda celebrates Honda’s continued success at the highest level of motor sport.
Whichever Honda you choose, race-bred engineering comes as standard.
