Civic WRC: The secret Honda project you have not seen

In recent years we have been able to see various crazy car modifications, but almost no one can measure with this Honda Civic from the third generation
The project was inspired by the legendary Renault 5 Turbo, and realized by Andy Barcheck , who is also involved in making hot rods . The main features of this car are the centrally mounted engine and extended body . It took a lot of time to put the 2.5-liter V6 engine out of Acure behind the seat.
Among other things, Barcheck had to cut the floor and make a metal frame, and there are plenty of other solutions and parts that he had to design and produce so that everything would work as it should. The fuel tank was moved to the front of the car, and the fridge and brake were transplanted from Corvette . When the car was over, Barcheck participated in several races and won numerous awards. Honda remained in his possession until he had created a new project and then sold it.

The car has changed several owners in the coming years , to keep it for the last decade with the current owner. He held it in perfect condition, both visually and technically, and he changed the engine. He built a 3.2-liter V6 engine from Acure CL Type-S, which was delighted by Barcheck himself.

‘I built this car so it could take at least another 100′ horses’ more than it had. I’m glad someone did what I was supposed to do, “said Andy Barcheck. While Honda was still his, Barcheck was “selling the story” to people as the car was a secret Honda project group B for the WRC and that only two such cars were produced. One was at Honda’s warehouse in Tokyo, and another ended up with him. Kroza’s laugh says he mostly believed it
