We sure had our fair share of crazy Civics recently, including this 1000-horsepower all-wheel drive wagon, and this drag car sending 425 horses through its front wheels. Now, we present you ’s home-built 1993 Honda Civic EG hillclimb special, which is an equally mad fifth-generation monster designed to get more speed out of thin air.
Mr. Loveland is not knew to this game, having built the Enviate prototype that came second in the Unlimited Class two years ago at Pikes Peak. His Civic uses the same carbon fiber wings front and rear as that car, with the chassis-mounted splitter creating some 500 lbs. of downforce at 90mph. There's also the clever frontal diffuser under the Civic, similar to the one you'd find on an Elemental Rp1.
The widebody kit was made using both the original fenders and some additional sheetmetal, while the interior is caged and completely stripped, except for the stock gauge cluster. Up front, there's a J32A2 Honda V6 from a 2001 Acura CL Type-S, with a Garrett turbo running at 10 psi. Completing the package are a set of 18-inch HRE wheels, sticky Toyo slicks, and a license plate that makes this a valid grocery-getter.
