Dario Franchitti drives a piece of history


Want to watch a piece of history hug the curves of a track? Watch as Dario Franchitti takes the famous–and immaculately kept–1965 Honda RA272 out for a spin.

This 1.5-liter V-12, 230 horsepower race car is the very same one that scored Honda its first Grand Prix win at the 1965 Mexico Grand Prix, a race won by Richie Ginther.

Franchitti describes his experience with the car, from the sound of the engine, to its unique handling, saying, “To get in this, to drive such a historically significant car, and a Honda, which obviously is a brand very close to my heart, it’s been a lot of fun.”
