Honda’s return to Formula One competition as a full Works team was embodied in the RA106, which took to the track some 38 years after the Japanese manufacturer’s last attempt. Honda was a proven engine supplier in the sport, having supplied Lucky Strike BAR Honda for the previous five years, and wished to increase its visibility and input by owning and running a team. Yasuhiro Wada, president of Honda Racing Development said ‘The 2006 F1 season means a great deal to all of us at Honda as it marks the beginning of a new adventure and confirms an even greater commitment to F1’.*2006 marked a change in the Formula One engine regulations, with 3 litre V10 units being replaced with 2.4 V8s; a very different direction in engine design. Honda already held some experience with V8 engines, building these for the Indy Racing League (IRL). Designed by Geoff Willis, the RA106 was slow to make its impact on track, a pattern that was broken at the Hungarian Grand Prix where British driver, Jenson Button, drove the Honda to victory.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the Honda RA106 has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Honda regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings. The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
