Honda Motor Co Ltd was founded in Hamamatsu in October 1946, although the company itself wasn’t incorporated until 24th September 1948. It was founded by Soichiro Honda and Takeo Fujisawa, the former had an interest in automobiles and his hobby was to tune cars and enter them in competitions.
Honda started producing cars in 1963 with the introduction of the Honda T360, a car truck built for the japanese market. This was followed by a two door roadster the Honda S500. Over the years Honda has produced a wide variety of vehicles including the Honda NSX, an all aluminium, mid engined sports car.
Honda has also a history in Formula One, but due to the global economic crisis in 2008, this was taken over by Ross Branw and renamed Brawn GP. Honda have officially announced it will return to Formula One as an engine supplier to McLaren.

What our customers are saying
“Cocoon Vehicles Ltd Derby really have looked after me with regards to vehicle hire. I find their prices highly competitive, well within my company’s budget, which allow me to take receipt of a brand new, high end, luxury sports model car of my choice every six months. They’re a professional and approachable team, I deal with Paul Stone (Managing Sales Director), Gordon, Rhys and Katie are all friendly and being able to address the team by name is refreshing. Having dealt with most of the car hire firms in Derby who quite frankly offer basic model cars at high prices with very often hidden charges that they fail to inform you of. That along with their ‘over promise under deliver’ attitude in most cases left me feeling unsure of vehicle hire altogether. However, with Paul and the team I’ve always felt valued. Well done guys.“
