....is simply because it would be so powerful that it would take away from the s2000.

Type S is 220 hp, I would imagine that a type R of the same car would have to have at least 20hp more, and be a lot lighter to make it a true "race car". this would probably put it in the same league as the s2000 (240hp), and make the prelude one the most powerful sports car in the honda line up under 30k USD,

I'm sure it would almost as fast as the much lighter s2000..


just a theory of mine, please offer your opinions....

Was the S2000 even a concept when the 5th generation of Preludes rolled around? I just think Honda saw no need to go beyond the Prelude Type S, though I am kind of curious as to how they would lighten a Prelude with a Type R badge on it. Well...besides just removing the sunroof and radio :rolleyes:

They could easily drop 150 pounds or more. If they remove the sunroof, manual windows and locks, remove all the insulaltion, replace the ATTS with a real lsd, lighter wheels and seats, lighter free flowing exhaust, etc..... They didn't make a PTR because the Prelude was never designed to be a 10/10ths racer. It was supposed to be a sofisticated canyon carver. Same class as say a Chrysler Sebring.

I put a Prelude Type R sticker on my car……..it just looks good, didn’t do it cuz I have mode or anything….i don’t have any mode, but I like the look of it…I’m thinking of putting an SC on it…that’s as close as I’ll get to a type R……..it’s all good :cool:

Why advertise something you don't have? They never even made a Type R Lude. Just because you install a sc does not make it a Type R. I don't think people realize the amount of R&D it takes to have the R badge. Jeez, I don't think M3's have this problem. :(

who really cares....here's my theory....there never was a prelude type R never ever ever, so people just need to relax aight my doods. In my opinion, if you mod your car for racing purposes or whatever and you want to put the type R sticker on your car go for it. After all, by modding it, you have made it a little more faster and more towards a "type racing kind of car". However, regarding the M class or the integra type R (since these cars actually exist), i would say you can't put a type R logo or M logo on those types of cars b/c the type R and M logos are classics and no matter what you do to your car, if its not a type R, it doesn't make it the original one.
Bottom line: Don't lie. Take my car for example okay....I have a 93 teg and i put the sticker DOHC R on the side window. I did this b/c the statement "Type R" would be a lie, but just the R is not. The "R" is simply Honda's racing R thats all.
