Fake Acura badge on the back, the CR-X del Sol was sold as a Honda in every market where it went.

This car is made extra pretty with tinted windows, a white fuel cap, and matte gray alloys.

Power came from a high-revving naturally aspirated 1.6 liter four cylinder. Output was 160 hp @ 7600 rpm and 150 nm @ 7500 rpm. Redline @ 8200 nm. Transmission was a 5-speed manual.  A fantastic little racer, if you like shifting gears…
