An engineer, Soichiro Honda founded his company in 1946. Honda started from motorcycles to become one of the largest vehicle manufacturers in the world. Now apart from motorbikes this Japanese corporation produces automobiles, aircraft, electronics, artificial intelligence and power equipment. In 2015 Honda placed eighth in the world motor vehicle production ranking. To compete with the longer existing Japanese car manufacturers, Toyota and Nissan, Honda has always been trying to avoid the beaten track and implement new technologies into their products. One of those unique ideas was to release the first Japanese luxury car brand, Acura, in 1986. Honda has been active as an entrant, constructor and engine supplier in various motorsports - motocross, Formula One or IndyCar.
