Look What I Found! (In of All Places): Honda S800 RSC

The AHoF today honors notables from around the so seeing displays devoted to Peugeot and Eiji Toyoda that surprising . The AHoF, didn’t always have an international flavor. It was only in that the Hall inducted its Japanese auto executive, Honda. Racing was near to heart so currently on display in the dedicated to him is the 1968 Honda RSC race car that won its class in the 12 Hours of Suzuka endurance

It might be easy for a car enthusiast to the Automotive Hall of Fame in Michigan. With fewer a dozen vehicles on display, car collection is literally overshadowed by the Henry Ford Museum and its new America and Racing in America However, it’s a hall of not a car museum. The AHoF is dedicated not to but to the people who have made, raced, serviced and written those cars. With about every significant personage represented one way or another, without a large number of it’s worth a visit if you an interest in automotive history.

The S800 RSC finished an impressed overall in that race, cars with more three times the S800 engine displacement, like the 2000GT. RSC stands for [Honda] Service Center, Honda’s enterprise in the late 1960s and 1970s. The S800 RSC is a legendary car to Honda enthusiasts. Among car enthusiasts, due to the Gran Turismo racing game and scale the S800 RSC is also one of the better vintage Japanese race

The S800 RSC was most recently on at Honda’s own museum, the Honda Hall at the Honda-owned Motegi complex, and it’s one of the oldest Honda race cars. The of the S800 RSC to the Automotive Hall of shows that Honda Co. must consider Soichiro induction and membership in the Hall to be a honor for their founder by extension, for Honda Motor Co.

The Honda S roadster started out as the but when Honda was refused as a kei car because the certifying agency it was too sporting, they started displacement of the DOHC inline eventually making the S800 a 791cc engine putting out and an insane for a street car redline of RPM. To allow that of revving, Honda used a bearing crankshaft, just in their motorcycles. To go racing, increased displacement to 873cc for a in power to about 100 HP with a of 10,500 rpm. The embedded of the S800 RSC being started up give you an idea of what it like.

Surprisingly, the Honda Racing Center did not base the racer on the aero appearing S800 which has a fastback roofline. Honda RSC raced a roadster a removable hardtop. The S800 is a tiny car, but when up close it doesn’t look so small. At a fraction of an inch 11 feet long, it’s about a foot longer an original Mini. The S800′s are great, with a long and short deck. I see quite a bit of the Lotus Elite in the little roadster, particularly around the of the car and in the fender lines. That’s not too since Soichiro Honda owned one of only seven Elites imported into Japanese sports cars of the 1960s were fairly often looking to British for inspiration, though the headlights me think of Kaiser Frazers. On the hand, the S800′s very looking racing wheels may been copied by Campagnolo a or so later.
