Remember when Honda unveiled the CR-Z hybrid? It looked as if it was supposed to be a sort of CRX revival, but ended up being fairly bland behind the wheel. We've still never had a true successor to the CRX, and this video of taking a spin of a well-setup example is the latest reason why we definitely need Honda to make a new one.
For his latest One Take, Farah gets behind the wheel of a white CRX that's had its engine replaced with a B20 four-cylinder engine from a 1999 CRV crossover, combined with a five-speed manual from an Integra. That might not seem like much of a swap, but thanks to the lightness of the CRX chassis, that extra power goes a long way.
With bigger disc brakes out back and a set of lowering springs all around, the car also handles well. Watch for yourself as Farah flogs it around the canyons and reminds us why we need Honda to make a new one.
