1991 Honda CRX VTEC

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

With all the fuss and hype sur­round­ing later per­for­mance Fords and Peu­geots, it’s easy to for­get that there were tal­ented al­ter­na­tives back when those cars were new, and those al­ter­na­tives make a re­fresh­ing change in to­day’s clas­sic world. ACA’s Honda CRX VTEC was a good case in point, a gem of an ex­am­ple that had cov­ered 15,734 miles from new, mostly up to June 2012 when the ven­dor bought it. Sub­se­quently stored in a de­hu­mid­i­fied garage it was stun­ning, with typ­i­cally ex­act­ing paint and panel fit and an as-new in­te­rior. The only dis­cernible fault was a cracked front num­ber plate. In­ter­est in this car was al­ways go­ing to be strong, but se­ri­ously fevered bid­ding soon shat­tered the £10,000 up­per es­ti­mate as bid­ders rightly recog­nised that you don’t nec­es­sar­ily need to chase any­thing with an RS badge on it.
