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!

Needs a quickshifter / blipper.

Mike Krueger says:

Could NOT stop grinning at this little beast. Those cam driven gears in the VFR800- possibly the best sounding bike ever made when uncorked.

David Oliner says:

My favorite SmokingTire video, sheer joy from Farah

Matt Wernecke says:

Really great!
I would like your help building a race car!

Austin Becker says:

This thing is so sick!! The sound is awesome! I always thought it would be cool to stick a larger motorcycle engine in a tiny car. This thing must rev to the moon….

I have never seen Matt so happy. He has a huge grin on his face the whole video.

Oleg efov says:

Welcome to sportbikes ppl lol. Sport Bikes are a lot more race oriented especially drivetrain, unlike cars cuz of ever rising weight. They just detune the racebike.

thomas womack says:

Proof positive you dont need less than 10 lbs per hp to have a rocking good time. God that thing is automotive sex.

bradfocl says:

Still the best car ever on One Takes

Von Sterner says:

If you don’t think this is a cool ass build, you should go play super smash bros.

Ashe mckinley says:

Why not use the larger stroked v4 motor from Honda? There’s no way it wouldn’t have fit

Chris Hollandsworth says:

John boy C says:

Steve, sell me this

Skyler Lucky says:

Always wanted to put a vmax engine in the back of a crx.. Or econobox.. The driveshaft and rear steals so much of the very low torque…. It’s still bad ass.. Wonder what Chuck Beck would have done

Georges K says:

love love love it!!!

accordv6er says:

I keep coming back to this for the noise…. oh sweet sweet noise

TwisTed Taipan says:

Why not a CBR1000RR engine?

Nick Parau says:

@Ashe mckinley the 1200cc v4 sounds like shit and is not much powerfull than the 800.

Young Armani says:

This was the first one take where when it ended I immediately watched it from the beginning again, the whole way through.

Chris says:

So ricers were born in 1972?

Austin Clark says:

I’ve watched a lot of his videos, and I’ve never seen a smile that big. Looks amazing!

Thats my old engine!!! I’m 99% sure I sold that motor to the builder “Dean Williams” in 2012 when I lived in orange county… What a trip!!

A little Honda with the sound of a BRM V16. What in the world!

I just showed my roommate (who couldn’t be less into cars) this video and the one with Alex Roy’s Morgan 3-wheeler and he loved these quirky cars. How could you not like this thing? I WANT ONE SO BAD.

Seriously one of the coolest cars I’ve ever seen. Looks like one of the most fun cars to drive ever.
