In 1966, Formula 1 regulations were changed and stipulated 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 Honda engineers unfortunately had to start from scratch again, and the RA273 was not ready until the Italian GP in 1966. Featuring a lightweight monocoque frame with aluminum panels and powered by a 90 degree V-12 engine, it was driven by Richie Ginther and John Surtees, Ginther finishing the season in a respectable 4th place overall.

To commemorate the first victory of Honda’s thirdadventure in F1 racing (Hungary GP), the 1/12Big Scale Series ITEM 12011 with Photo-EtchedParts included is out on limited re-release!

With Richie Ginther at the wheel, the carproved to be more powerful than its competitors, and Ginther ended the season in a respectablefourth place.
