Fan Ride: Meanwhile, in Germany...

About a month or so ago I shared an image of a gorgeous 1st gen CRX race car on the GEN ONE Blog Facebook page, and the photo got a lot of attention.  I had never seen the car, and the photo seemed recent, so I decided to dig a little to see if I could locate the owner.  I didn't have much luck until someone tagged the owner of the car.  I immediately contacted him, and thankfully, he was more than happy to share his car.

Jurgen races his 1986 CRX in Germany.  It has a 1.6L ZC engine with racing pistons, a dry sump system, and a twin Weber carb setup that is pushing 196hp!  To distribute all that power to the front wheels, he has a Mugen differential installed as well.  The interior sports a full roll cage, custom gauge cluster, large tachometer with shift light, Sparco racing seat, a six-point harness, full extinguisher system and a detachable steering wheel.  The suspension includes Koni and Bilstein parts.  All this adds up to a fast and light (1700lbs) racer.

Thanks Jurgen for sharing your amazing 1G and becoming a GEN ONE Blog fan!

  1. 200hp is the holy grail for an NA D16. Good to see something pre-TEC still punching well above its weight.

    1. Yeah, that's certainly an impressive output #.
