Did 2003 really happen, or were we all living in an alternate universe where this kind of thing seemed normal? Everything from the chrome big n’ littles to the color-shift paint to the SpoCom crazy EP3 Civic Si-shaped body basically carbon dates this car as having been built in the early 2000s. The great thing about it, however, is that it is powered by a 1000+ horsepower turbocharged Acura NSX V6. Uhhhhh. Sure, why not? Sadly, I cannot find any footage of the car actually racing.
Never really saw the design appeal of putting a purpose-built (and often bastardized) body on a totally built frame, leading to someone (using the example above) saying they have the world’s fastest civic. Why not make it look like a dragon? A sword? Spaceship? Something really sweet.
