Honda RA273(w/Photo-Etched Parts)
【 Honda's 3 Liter F1 Machine 】 In 1966, Formula 1 regulations were changed and indicated a move from cars with 1.5 liter engines to those with 3 liter ones. Having finally tasted success with the 1.5 liter RA272 the year before, the green Honda engineers unfortunately had to start from scratch again, and the RA273 was not ready until the Italian GP in the 1966. Featuring a lightweight monocoque frame with aluminum panels and powered by a 90 degree V-12 engine, the car was driven by Richie Ginther and John Surtees, with Ginther finishing the season in a respectable 4th place overall.
