Honda F1 has decided to share a video of its first-ever prototype F1 car on social media, one which would change the fate of Japanese motorsport forever.
The RA270 was a pioneer for its time, but it wasn't until 1964 that a Honda car actually appeared on the F1 grid. While Honda's debut F1 car enjoyed limited success, one year later the team achieved its first-ever victory in the series at the Mexican Grand Prix, after a superb drive from Richie Ginther.
Incredibly, the company's first F1 chassis was built just four years after they produced a road car for the first time, which goes to show how remarkable their operation was in its infancy.
The video below shows the RA270, a prototype that paved the way for future Honda chassis' to follow throughout the mid-1960s.
While no audio is available, we do get to see the car out on track, in what would have been some of the very first laps Honda ever completed.
