Prelude Road Tests / Reviews.

Does anyone know if any shows / reviewers such as Top Gear, Fifth Gear, Jeremy Clarkson, Tiff Needel ect... have ever reviewed / test driven any generation of Prelude?

I would be very interested to watch or read what they had to say about one.

Cheer's

Nope.
Preludes weren't popular in Europe, or on the rest of the planet lol...

the only review i saw was with Vicki Butler-Henderson, that cheeky blonde with the overbite...she did a review on the 5th gen vti-r. I cant seem to find that though...

Oh yeah she is on Fifth Gear and looks mighty fetching in a double-strap racing seat belt if you know what I mean

I did some googling and here it is!! She reviews a 5th Gen. I would really like to hear what Jeremy Clarkson had to say as I value his opinion more but Vicki still does a great job. Enjoy.

Re: Prelude Road Tests / Reviews.

Bringing back an old thread, I've driven and been in all of them and I'd take the lude, fiat coupe looks nice but not impressive for a turbo imo and the build quality isn't great.

Motor trend did a review of the 4g. I can't post it cause I can't access YouTube at work, lol.

Re: Prelude Road Tests / Reviews.

Most I can find related to ludes by top gear would be this

"and Honda gave up selling its Prelude to old ladies in Lancashire."
Clarkson on: coupes - BBC Top Gear

number 73 in Clarksons' list of his top 100 cars

IMCDb.org: 1997 Honda Prelude [BB] in "Clarkson's Top 100 Cars, 2001"

with a quote in the video something along the lines of

"japans most beautiful car"

and here's a probe review where they compare it with a 4th gen a golf and a calibra
