Joey from The Chronicles recently tossed up a post called Japanese Treats where he posted a few cars from Japan including this Acura Vigor.
In that post he stated that nobody gave a crap about the Vigor in the US and now that I think about it nobody really cared about them in Canada either as I am pretty sure I have not seen one anywhere in a solid 5 years.
What’s weird is people rocked the hell out of legends (Ludacris loves his) and a lot of people are all about TLs which replaced the Vigor.
Popularity of the model aside this Vigor is dope and clearly took a a cue or two from the VIP scene.
Maybe Honda should have made them rear wheel drive…
This car and more at jdm-usdm.
i think what made them unpopular is the strange layout of the engine and transmission..def. not a tuners dream.
this is honda inspire.インスパイア、知らないの？
@chris I’ll have to check that out never looked under the hood of one.
カナダとアメリカに日本の「インスパイア」は違うです。カナダとアメリカの「Acura Vigor」 と「Acura TSX」 は日本のアコード。それで、インスパイアはカナダとアメリカのアコード。
Thed Vigor used a G20S, which was an inline-5 that was mounted longitudinally yet drove the front wheels. I have a 1990 Legend L with the C27 V6 and it uses a conventional drivetrains setup. The 1st-gen Legends are fantastic cars. Oh, and BTW it was the RL that replaced the Legend/Vigor, not the TL
Nick that is such a weird motor setup. I wonder why Honda thought that was a good idea?
i got 1 they make nothing really for it it take accord suspension on it he has a great looking car i wonder if he was motor mods to it i had to custom everything beside the accord coilovers
