This 1972 Honda N600 was the first production car Honda ever built. They are quite a rare sight today, this one being the only one I have ever seen in person. This example is highly modified, with the engine from a Honda VFR800 Interceptor motorcycle, a squential gearbox, rear-drive configuration, and a 12,000 RPM redline. This car is very fast, very fun, and is one of a very few cars I’ve ever tested where I have offered to buy it on the spot.

The full build is worth checking out on Wheelwell!

  1. Zcars makes a similar but better version. Classic Austin Healey Mini Cooper, but with a Yamaha R1, or Suzuki Hyubusa, or Honda k20 engine. Car weighs 800-1200lbs depending, and hp is 220-500 depending. Imagine an old school mini that weighs 800lbs and has a turbo or supercharged k20 with 500hp.

  2. This and some garage built rat(cant remember the car) have been the best videos I've seen on this channel, it brings out Matts love of driving unique machines. Power is not everything.

  3. There are some people that seem shocked how he could've been so blown away by "only 115 hp".
    I have both an '89 ST162 Celica (bone stock survivor), and an AE86 Corolla I'm in the process of resurrecting.
    My ST162 is my daily, it only makes 115 BHP and it boogies for what it is, and it's a total riot to drive, it's FWD and corners better than it has any business doing, it will fry/smoke tire from a dead stop in either 1st or 2nd, it weighs considerably more than this N600 at 2500 lbs.
    It's all about how the vehicle communicates with you, the vibrations, the smells, the way you can feel the suspension set up into and out of corners, the way the weight shifts when you accelerate or break.
    These small things add up, and as crazy as it sounds…THAT is what makes a good/fun driving experience.
    Power can be fun, but if the chassis is non-responsive, or the car doesn't have decent handling characteristics, it's gonna suck to drive.
