The Honda RA273 was a Formula One racing car used by the Honda team in the 1966 and 1967 Formula One seasons.

The engine was re-designed from the RA272's 1,500cc V12 to a brand new 3,000cc V12 due to the change of regulations before the 1966 season. The new engine was designed by Shoichiro Irimajiri.

Honda RA273, 1966

Having won the final race of F1’s 1.5-litre engine era the previous year, Honda returned towards the end of 1966 with a 3-litre car, the RA273. It featured a powerful V12 engine but the car was some 200kg heavier than its rivals.

The car remained in service the following year, when John Surtees finished on the podium in South Africa.


Thanks F1 FANATIC!
