It actually distributes power, doesn’t involve the brakes. Honda used it as a mule to prototype their SH-AWD technology.
5th gen Prelude love always get a star from me. Loved my Type SH. Pedant warning: It wasn’t a LSD, it was an active system that pushed additional torque to the outside wheel in hard cornering to equalize. The effect was neutral cornering, you never had understeer.
Subaru Legacy GT... I know they still make the Legacy, but it’s fallen very FAR... only available with an anemic NA 4 banger and a CVT. They need to bring back Subaru’s answer to the 5 series, E class and A6...
Regera? More like Regreta...amiright?
Find a good Legacy GT for $5k...more like $7-9k.
Good list. Maybe it’s just nostalgia, but I was hoping a mid-nineties Maxima would make the list.
Last gen GTO. Sweet car but what the F@ck is that!!
I love Nissan, but man, they can’t design a steering wheel for the life of them.
The advantage of parts-bin is that you can take the higher trim level parts from other models and fit them to vehicles that never offered them. Here is the C6 Alcantara wheel that I fitted to my Saturn Sky:
The 2009 Jaguar XFR had serious performance chops with over 500hp on tap.
Nothing ruins an automotive experience quite so badly as a horrible steering wheel.
