Honda launched the T360 mini truck in 1963 to become the last major domestic automaker to enter the Japanese automotive market. A second model, the S500 sports car, then followed in the T360’s footsteps to form a pair of vehicles equipped with Japan’s first DOHC automobile engine and to make Honda’s debut with a full complement of our distinctive innovation. Then in 1964, Honda took up the challenge of Formula One with the intent of honing Honda’s leading edge technology at the pinnacle of racing.
