Honda Preludes slow and expensive as the following information presents:

The Nissan 200sx specs:
Maximum Power 147kW @ 6400rpm
Maximum Torque 265Nm @ 4800rpm
Transmission 6-speed manual
Quoted from the nissan web

page:http://www.nissan.com.au/200sx/performance.htm

It is also $5000 less than then honda prelude vti-r.

Honda Prelude VTi-R specs:
Maximum Power 147 @ 7000
Maximum torque 212 @ 5300
Transmission 5-speed Manual
Quoted from honda page:
price: $50k

The Subaru WRX specs:
Power 160/5600
Torque 292/3600
All Wheel Drive
Price $43k

All this information tells me that people who buy honda preludes are moron's, they have been sucked in by a loser carsalesman. HaHa suffa.


P.S. check this comparison out:

I disagree with the statement "Preludes Suck"

Over here they have slightly different specs...

Max Horsepower: [email protected]
Max Torque: [email protected]
0-60: 6.7sec
1/4mile: BASE MODEL-15.1sec SH-15.3sec
PRICE: BASE MODEL-$23,000 TYPE SH-$26,000
These are OUR specs here in the US. Sorry if you don't like them. Just wanted you to know what they are like over here.

The 0-60 time for the newer preludes is more like 7.1 and 15.1 for the 1/4. It's not faster than the SR-V's, those things are around 6.9. Unless you've done it 6.7 on the track, i still think it's 7.1, but track readings can be off, so 7.1 is on most car mags and internet sites. I'm not dissing the preludes. I love the 92-96 preludes (SR-V of course).. and i'm considering on getting one of those. I just don't like the body of the 97+, and their engine haven't improved at all.. you gain hp but you lose tq... so it's pretty much the same thing.

Actually, the newer gens did not lost torque, but they did gain 10 horses. But they got slightly heavier, so it evened out. I don't like the 4th gens, they are more feminine looking in my opinion, all rounded bubbly....According to Road and Track the 0-60 time was 6.7 seconds on the newer preludes. The 4th gen had a 6.5 time....but the newer ones are doing 6.7........

Hey PreludesRULE, do you know the time for a 92 3000GT SL 0-60 and 1/4? Nobody on here seems to be answering me that question but telling me that I cant beat it. I was watching two of my friends raced... a 3000GT SL and a 2000 Prelude.. it came out to be a tie.. and his prelude isn't stock and the Mitsu was... i was like what the hell just happened? Cuz I figured that the Prelude would've blown him away.

A stock MX6 LS could take a 3000gt SL pretty easy. That lude driver must not be very good. Race the lude and beat him then beat the 3000GT SL.

1991 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL 0-60 8.5 1/4mile 16.4
1996 Mazda MX-6 LS 0-60 7.6 1/4mile 15.8
2000 Honda Prelude typeSH 0-60 6.8 1/4mile 15.4
2000 Base Model Prelude 0-60 6.7 1/4mile 15.2

That is what it is....Man, that lude driver sucked! I have roasted one of those 3000GT's before when my car was still stock. If you are in a V6 MX-6 you should be able to beat him.....If in a 4 cylinder....you will have some trouble. In a V6 it will still be a decent race. You will beat him if you are a good driver, but if he is modded or anything, the 3000GT will give you a very good run.

Yo thanks for the replies you guys.. it gave me an extra boost of confidence.. we're probably gonna race soon..
I've got a race story also... Ok i'm a car kinda guy, i know what's on the road.. but I swear I've never seen this ugly ass car before. I don't know the make or model. So we were goin down a 2 lane street. On a 50kph zone and we're doing about 100kph, I didn't go any faster cuz I knew she couldn't catch up anyways. She couldn't pass me, so she got mad and got behind me and was on my tail. I gave her the tailights and she changed lanes right away. That's when I stepped on it and didn't let her pass again. Approaching a corner, I slowed down of course, she went right by me and cuts me off. ****in dented my front passenger side. I got out of the car and yelled at her, she says it was her fault.. her excuse "Her road rage" - So I was like whatever.. She says I'll go get my registration number, and when she got in, she ****in took off!!!!!! HAHA I chased her down for about 3 minutes... caught up to her toooo easily and got her plate #. She was probably happy cuz I backed off and let her continue running away thinking I didn't get her #. (GF was crying her face off in the car) Oh that bitch is gonna get it when i see her at the claim center.

So it doesn't look like I can challenge my friend's car anytime soon, cuz autopac is telling me to come in more than 2 weeks from now! Damn ugly girls on the road. If she was hot, I would've excused her. LOL Oh by the way, the prelude's guy excuse was that he got a bad start cuz one of the guy didn't start it properly (i thought so too), and this guy does know how to drive cuz he belongs to a racing team in Wpg.
