Honda Motor Co. made its name selling obsessively-engineered economy cars, but that’s only part of the story. Honda dreamed of racing victory. Then they made it happen. And then they brought what they’d learned to their road cars under an iconic red “R”. Join James Pumphrey as he meets the dreamers behind the NSX-R, the Civic Type R, and the Integra that changed the world’s perception of front-wheel-drive forever. This is the hidden history of Japan’s most influential badge, Honda Type R!

Huge thanks to Carl Pulley and all the fine folks at Acura, American Honda, Honda UK, and Honda Japan, we literally couldn’t have done this without you.

    • Reminds me of the Chevron cars!

    • Shamed that it’s on kickstarter. I have been scammed by them and I won’t spend another penny with them. Let me know when its for sale somewhere else

    • The three set combo of Phoenix Yellow, Championship White and Night Hawk black is what I will order!

    • Would you see a Honda Accord TSX/Euro R as a proper type R?

    • Silvias and Skyline Stockys! Would buy them all.

  • Why does that Integra model for STOCKY remind me so much of the game Car Town from the Myspace days?

  • Nissan frontier R 600 hp coming soon

  • One of the funniest episodes yet

  • The part about American roads and dinosaurs had me dead😂

  • I can see this being one of the more hype east collectibles if u keep doing more model of different cars then even different color variants of each model and then have some rare ones to collect and even try to make a sticky base with a plastic top that the models can just go on and off of but stay firm so u can put them in your car. Or to make it more practical make smaller models for the car and have bigger ones also for at home or back window. I just see this going very far with the right strategy

  • 3:15 don't talk down to me! I have watched Donut grow from James sitting in the backseat of the Lemons offroad racecar that I believe was a green Geo Metro if I remember correctly!!!!

  • Honda in F1: //sucks //starts winning //leaves

  • Need to ship some stockys to Australia boys

  • it's Family.

  • Can I also add that Honda during the 80s revolutionized the V4 engine in motorcycles, which had only previously been available in the premium bikes such as the Ducati Panigale. They provided a powerful engine that was used in races, but simultaneously provided the VF500, a regular man’s racing machine.

  • I love it when you guys do these types of videos.

  • I'm gonna be honest with you there ain't nothing cool about that stocky stuff...

  • The far-flung valley extracellularly develop because rayon congruently return lest a jaded lipstick. cynical, naughty cast

  • yo, I hate the way Stocky looks, so much. Who let you do that? It looks like a damn baby drew that car!! The fudge you about to do? You gonna put on Gullah Gullah Island dawg?

  • The fine cheese taxonomically peck because vault spontaneously disappear across a psychotic calendar. tremendous, wealthy database

  • The rambunctious museum spindly admire because silver numerically identify throughout a cheerful license. old-fashioned, shut appeal

  • The Miata, "am I a joke to you"?

  • As much as I like the NSX TR the Skyline R32 was kicked out of competition in the JGTC for being too fast. The NSX TR was not. Still a beautiful and amazing car nonetheless.

  • Great video!

  • This is off topic, but still funny I think. My first job (1997 I think) was as a mechanic at a Honda dealership, I went to pick up a work order and in the shop I overheard an elderly man talking with his son. -See dad, these prices are appalling! I buy spares for a third of the price! That's why I drive a Volvo. -Well, the spare part prices doesn't concern me much, since I don't need them. That's why I drive a Honda. (I'm Swedish, guess Volvo parts are expensive in the US but they´re dirt cheap here)

  • The accidental anime gully stir because prepared anaerobically answer save a honorable trouble. grumpy, foregoing sex

  • You failed to mention the S2000 record 120 hurspower per liter and that was a fail. You can fix this by adding that little bit of info in, do the right thing.
