Lot details

Registration No: E11 CRX
Chassis No: JHMEH61600S006239
MOT: July 2024

  • Just 9,750 miles from new
  • Offered with cherished registration number ‘E11 CRX’
  • Supplied with the original stamped service book
  • Surely a great addition to a Japanese car enthusiast's private collection!

A rakish two-seater Targa-top convertible, the third-generation CRX was introduced to the UK in June 1992. Based - like its coupe predecessors - on a shortened version of the contemporaneous Honda Civic, it featured all-round independent coil and wishbone suspension and rack and pinion steering. Flagship of the range, the VTi version, was powered by a 1595cc DOHC four-cylinder engine that incorporated Honda's latest generation of variable valve timing technology. Quoted as developing some 160bhp and 111lbft of torque, this remarkable unit was allied to five-speed manual transmission and reputedly gave the lightweight sportscar the ability to sprint from 0-60mph in 8.2 seconds and onto 121mph. Earmarked by the Times newspaper last year as a future classic, the CRX convertible has gone on to enjoy something of a cult following since production ceased in 1997.

Manufactured new in 1993, the CRX offered was supplied new by Honda main agents Horizon Motor Company in Parkstone, Dorset, and was delivered to its first owner on the 2nd of July that year. Finished in White with Grey cloth interior upholstery, the Honda is fitted with a retractable roof, and a 1.6-litre 16-valve VTEC engine allied to the five-speed manual gearbox. Covering minimal mileage across all its owners, the Honda entered into the late vendor’s ownership in 2016 having covered just c.8,500 miles. Used sparingly since the acquisition, just over another 1,000 miles have been covered with the CRX having travelled under 10,000 miles from new at the time of consignment. Offered with cherished registration number ‘E11 CRX’, the Honda is accompanied by a history file that includes MOT history, original sales literature, the original stamped service book, and a current V5C document. ‘E11 CRX’ is rated by the vendor as in ‘excellent’ condition throughout and is offered with a no advisory MOT certificate until July 2024. With such low mileage, this CRX is surely a great addition to a Japanese car enthusiast's private collection!
