This Is A Tuner’s Wet Dream: Meet The Honda Prelude With Two VTEC Engines

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Two engines? Still needs more VTEC. Honda is trying to bring back the “cool” in a big way with the new Civic, Type-R and NSX, although the latter sports an Acura badge. One car we would love to see wedge its way into the Honda lineup is the Prelude, one of the ultimate tuning icons. That doesn’t seem likely, so for now the world will need to be content with this crazy custom job that sports two VTEC engines. That’s right, there’s another engine sitting in front of the rear axle.

The two 2.2-liter DOHC VTEC engines are good for a combined power output of 400 horsepower and 312 lb-ft of torque. According to the seller there’s just about a 50/50 weight distribution here and a 0 to 60 somewhere in the mid-four range. Amazingly it seems like there’s nothing but positives here as the two-engine Prelude has better handling and power while still looking normal. Hell, it can even pass emissions tests. The seller, a student who built the car as part of a school project, was asking $19,500 on eBay but only ended up getting $9,600. Is that a steal of a deal?
