This is the fifth generation Honda Prelude BB5-BB9. It was launched in 1996 and remained in production until 2001. The New Prelude features classic sports coupe styling and a long list of standard equipment.
Two models are available, the Prelude and Prelude Type SH – the SH highlighting Honda’s newest technological breakthrough, the Active Torque Transfer System (ATTS), for enhanced handling characteristics.
The Prelude is powered by a 195hp, 2.2-liter, 16-valve, aluminium alloy engine featuring Honda’s patented VTEC system. VTEC controls intake and exhaust valve timing to provide outstanding torque and acceleration throughout its powerband.
The Prelude Type SH features a revised suspension for improved performance characteristics, which is further enhanced by innovative ATTS. The ATTS, standard on the Prelude SH, adjusts power to the front wheels during cornering, thus providing near neutral handling characteristics while cornering, greatly reducing vehicle understeer.
