Newsletter 268: RC166

RC166

RC166
Back in the 60s Honda engineers began to show the world what they were capable of, and as result they gave birth a a six-cylinder and almost 60 hp beast created from just a quarter of a liter of fuel. Awesome!!

Not long ago we were able to see the bike in person and enjoy its sound. That sound of her six individual exhaust at full throttle ridiculizes any current Formula 1 (SpotModel word).

Tamiya gave us back this old glory in scale model form some time ago, and now Model Factory Hiro brings us one of their essential graphic references about the RC166 and her sister, the RC174 . We are not going to lie to you, it is REAAAALLY difficult to hold yourself back :D

All the two-wheeled gems are also available at SpotModel ;)
