This sleek Honda CRX is finished in the Polar White, one of four choices when new. A deep bright shine which looks stunning really gives the car tremendous presence. All the protective trim is in exceptional condition with no scuffs on the vulnerable corners. The rear wheel arches are rust free but the protective rubber wheel arch strip is just starting to lift. The windows are all number plate etched and the correct stickers in the inner door shuts are present. There are a few minor car park dings and the fully operational sunroof has one tiny undulations. Visible touched in stone chips can be seen. Overall a beautiful, unmolested iconic coupe ready to be enjoyed.
A true sports machine interior with comprehensive instrumentation, excellent all round visibility and a commanding driving position. The sports seats offer a perfect balance of comfort and secure holding. The black leather is soft, clean and only shows minimal wear to the drivers bolster. All the internal trim is damage free and factory original. The red detailed stitching on the seats and door cards give a quality feel and genuine Honda CRX carpet mats remain in all four foot wells. A glorious unspoilt performance environment exactly as the manufacturer intended.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Quiet, powerful and precisely engineered, this Honda maintained example is now becoming incredibly hard to find in an unmodified guise. With 16 valves, DOHC design, a light aluminium cylinder block and the glorious VETEC technology developing 150bhp, this engine really was advanced in its day and still offers exciting fun for the keen driver. The engine allows the use of two wildly different cam profiles, effectively providing a very wide power band and good drivability at low RPM, along with a screaming top end. The 5 speed transmission is light, precise and a true joy to use allowing maximum extraction of power.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
5.5J X 14 unmarked sports alloy wheels all shod in new quality branded 195/60 R14 tyres. The servo-assisted ventilated front discs offer amazing feel and bring the car to a stop safely and quickly. ABS braking is standard on the VTEC model enhancing safety.
Supplied new to a Mr Holding on the 22nd December 1992 by Watersfield Honda in Pulborough, West Sussex this was one of the very last 2nd Generation Honda VTEC’s registered. Now twenty years old and with and incredible twenty Honda service stamps to match, this offers the new owner a fantastic opportunity to buy a professionally maintained example. Masses of Honda invoices complemented by a completely stamped service book first by Watersfield Honda and when they closed, Yeomans Honda in Chichester. The cam-belt was carried out at 93,273 miles and the vehicle has now covered a documented 98,670 by two careful owners.
