CR-X Coupe DOHC V-Tec - LSD & ABS. Very Low miles & Glass Roof!
The Honda CR-X Coupe is considered one of the best handling and quickest point to point front wheel drive cars ever made! This is the car with which Honda introduced independent double wishbone suspension at each corner, giving maximum tyre contact at all times.the 1.6i DOHC V-Tec model was introduced in 1990 and produced for just 2 years in this shape. Combined with a light weight of just 970kg, an ever willing engine making 162 bhp at 7,600 rpm with a V-Tec Zone that sounds goes much like that of a racing engine from 6,000 - 8,000 rpm, it's not hard to see why this car won so many admirers worldwide. Indeed, this is the car than encouraged Honda to produce Type R Civics and Integras from 1995 on. A classic with total pedigree!
Today, the CR-X 1.6i DOHC V-Tec is all too scarce in top condition. UK examples are usually rusty MOT failures with filler and rippled panels, rusty A pilars, arches, etc. or have been worn out through very high mileages and abuse. Even in Japan, where there's no corrosion in the warmer parts, most CR-X's have long since passed their best days and are fairly tired, or have been converted into low priced track weapons! If you have ever seen one of these being driven hard on a tight small circuit, you'll understand why they're popular for racing use!
This example is the best we have been able to source - ever. It's been beautifully kept and evidently garaged much of it's life, but is also completely original aside from the Wed Sports wheels and sports tyres fitted, which suit it well and improve the stance. This example is equipped with a rare and very desirable full glass roof, an option that was only offered in Japan during the 2 years the V-Tec EF8 was in production. It is fitted with some nearly new Wed Sports Racing Wheels of 15" size with nearly new Bridgestone Potenza Grid II sports tyres of size 205/50-R15
It's completely rust free - even the original rear silencer and suspension components are original with no rust! It looks as a CR-X would be expected to - if a few years old and carries the rare Japan only Glass roof, as well as optional ALB (ABS) and limited slip differential. Being of Japanese Spec. - There's the usual Honda equipment too, including air conditioning, PAS, electric windows, original "CR-X" fitted mats, rear wiper, privacy rear glass, central locking, remote controlled door mirrors with retract mode, etc. Interior is in top condition with no holes on seats, or excessive wear to the leather, etc, as the pictures will demonstrate. It's been a non smoker's car from new too! Note there's a Kenwood DPX 5200 200 watt MD/CD/Radio - this is supplied free of charge with the car.
Auction grade is 4. The paint condition is superb. There are just a few minor faults to report in the form of light pin dents on each door (as shown in pictures), minor scratches to the n/s door mirror, a few very small light scrathes on the rear spoiler (each less than 1cm long), light scratches around the driver's door handle - most of which should polish off. On the rear bumper strip, there's some touch up paint. On the roof, there's a chromed trim strip aft of the glass roof, whose plastic coating has come away over the years from summer sunshine. This will be easier to strip off completely - and if preferred, spray in matt black. Each of these items will be repaired if the full UK preparation option is chosen below.
We test drove this CR-X V-Tec and found it drove absolutely faultlessly. Brakes work well, with no signs of warping, gearbox good with synchros intact, handling's tight and there's an awesome indiction roar and an intoxicating push in the back as the V-Tec zone is breached from 6,000 rpm. Handling, even with standard suspension, etc. is excellent too. There are no rattles or signs of abuse at all. Engine has also been serviced recently - as shown by clean oil.
If you're after the very best original CR-X currently available, this is it!!
