1999 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe
The prelude by Honda is a legend and I hope Honda decides to start production again soon. The 99 models saw a 5 HP increase to make it 200 HP(Base model seems fasteR than the SH MODEL), which is more than the type r integra stock. Exterior styling still turnsheads todaY and the interior is not bad. Under the hood we see one of the biggest stock honda 4 cylinder motors at 2.2 liters and the added bonus of VTECH MAKES THIS BABY SCREAM AFTER 5500 RPM. The one thing I have not like about hondas as I have previously owned a 00 civic si and 95 GSR integra is the clutches in the cars stock are not very heavy duty especially during racing. Overall the lude is the best sporty honda out there
Handling, exterior styling, reliabilty, gas mileage, cool gauges, high rev line, high end power(dont mess with a lude on the freeway, one or two downshifts and you are out).
Low-end power lacking (especially when launching, easy to bog out), premium fuel required, heavier duty racing clutch needed, and shorter shifting.
