Honda Prelude Tuning

Prelude is simply the most legendary coupe from Honda. Though it would be an exaggerating statement but it is true. A great history that kicked off in 1978, Prelude went on to get better and better on road. With 5 great versions of this model, its production was finally halted in 2001. It created vibes in 1988 when the 2.0l was launched for the first time. A massive 142 bhp was something to praise for at that time.

Though the bonnet was long and sleek but it tapered at the end so that the driver had a good road view. Subsequent models of the ’90s had their own pros and cons.

One of the most inspiring tuning of the 92-96 Honda Prelude was seen recently. A metallic Navy blue was modified with flawless fittings.

A lowered adjustable suspension setup using Koni Sport dampers matched to Eibach Pro progressive Spring Kit was the biggest attraction. New alloys of 17″ OZ Superleggera fitted with Toyo T1-R tyres have boosted its road grip.
