A 1972 Honda N600 customized with a Honda VFR 800cc V4 motorcycle engine powering its rear wheels has won the inaugural Honda Super Turner Legends Series competition and earned its place on display at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Honda announced.
The N600 was the first Honda automobile imported for sale in the United States, beginning in 1970. At 122 inches in overall length, they were small enough to fit within the wheelbase of many full-size American sedans.
In addition to a motorcycle engine that spins to 12,000 rpm, the customized winner has Mazda Miata suspension, seats from a Polaris RZR, and modified bumpers from a late 1960s Chevrolet Camaro.
“As a longtime Honda fan, and owner of more than a few Hondas, it will be an incredible honor to see my car at Honda’s booth at SEMA,” said car owner Stephen Mines.
