    you get a LOT of bang for your buck even though you need a lot of bucks for the age of the car.

    thrash her and you can squeeze 200 miles from the 50L tank. take it easy and you get 300+. great tyres aint cheap but for this beast it is false economy to fit rubbish rubber. servicing costs are unusually low considering what lurks beneath the bonnet.

  • On the road


    5 out of 5 5.0

    this car corners on rails regardless of how wet or dry the road is.


    5 out of 5 5.0

    again, this car is blisteringly quick and extraoridinarily high top end. when vtec engages at around 6000rpm the car lurches forward at a pace you just cannot believe.

  • Living with it

    its japanese so is unparallelled for reliability.


    4 out of 5 4.0

    not famous for outrageous styling but instantly recognisable by its gargantuan boot spoiler. it will turn the heads of people who understand what its capabilities are.


    4 out of 5 4.0

    the recaro seats are very supportive but after a couple of hours they seem to close in on you. the ride is firm but not anything that could rattle your teeth.

  • Security and Service


    4 out of 5 4.0

    a factory fitted cat 1 alarm and immobiliser sounds good but, as everyone knows, if someone wants your car then they will eventually get their way.


    5 out of 5 5.0

    the honda garage are good at helping out where they can.

  • Problems and Ownership




    catastrophic failure of clutch left warranty firm with a £500 bill.
