This Rover 200 coupe may look like a Skyline R34, but what happens when you pit an actual Nissan against a naturally-aspirated Honda CR-X? Most would automatically assume that the 1988 Honda CR-X stands no chance against the Nissan, but that isn’t the case. That’s mainly because its original engine has been swapped for a B20 VTEC setup making 250 hp, mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
Although the Nissan Skyline R34’s RB25DET engine produces 300 hp, it’s a far heavier vehicle at 3,110-pounds, compared to the 1,850-pound CR-X. In all of the races, the finish line was set at 1,000-feet to ensure a fair race, as the Skyline R34 definitely has a higher top speed. Let’s just say that you don’t want to run into this particular Honda CR-X at any race track, even if you’re in a more powerful car.
