Race to better

Racecar, road car: the challenge is constant

Motorsport enables us to push the limits of automotive design. It demands ultimate performance, minimum waste. It’s helped us develop some of our best innovations yet, but this philosophy isn’t reserved for F1 alone. Just like the sports performance and hybrid technology of the NSX, the same Honda spirit is found in our road cars – ensuring refined technology is on your driveway too.

McLaren-Honda: a legendary partnership

Eight world championships, 44 grand prix wins, 53 pole positions, and 30 fastest laps with McLaren – we enjoyed one of the most dominant partnerships in motorsport history.

Roots in racing

Our legacy runs deep into Formula One history; we’ve been part of some of the sport’s most momentous events. From the legendary championship wins to crafting some of F1’s greatest cars, we were there.
