VFR800-Powered, RWD 1972 Honda N600 – One Take

Use discount code TST to get 10% off your first order and free shipping (includes Coffee Subscriptions!) of these delicious small batch roasts at Bee Line Coffee! https://beelinecoffee.com/ 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! https://goo.gl/QvoymM
