One of the novelty items was a simple volume control rocker switch and a pre-set radio station channel selector installed on the instrument binnacle within reach of the right hand; the opposite side of the instrument binnacle had a button to open, tilt or close the standard equipped glass moonroof with sun shade. The Rover Company had a long established reputation as a luxury car in the United Kingdom and Europe, demonstrated with the Rover P6, and Honda wanted to introduce a luxury car for both domestic Japanese and the United States markets.
It was also joined by the Acura Vigor which set the stage for the larger second generation Legend introduced October 1990.. Honda decided not to upgrade the size of the engine to a V8 because it would have upstaged the Acura NSX which has a V6 that introduced Honda's VTEC technology. Behind the wheel you’re greeted by those oh-so-Honda NS gauges, perfectly legible and seared forever into my mind’s eye. The car’s price started from $29,000 with the LS trim level.
I have to sell my blk/blk 1993 Acura Legend Coupe. The manual override buttons were hidden, giving a sensation of a simpler, clean console. It was sold in the U.S., Canada, and parts of China under Honda's luxury brand, Acura, from 1985 to 1995, as both a sedan, which was classified as a full-size car, and a coupe, which was classified as a mid-size car (similar to how the Honda Accord is set up today). High-end LS models featured a driver's-side airbag, trip computer, electronic vehicle monitoring system in the center console and a Bose sound system. It can be said that the renaming of the Legend to the RL, as well as Honda's refusal to adopt a front-engine rear-wheel drive layout which typify the more expensive luxury cars, had hurt sales of the RL and other Acura passenger cars.. It’s been regularly serviced, but the condition of the car is far from its prime.
The rear end appearance of the sedan was adopted from the first generation Legend coupe and Honda also wanted to visually align the appearance of both the Legend coupe and sedan to the Acura NSX. Number of bids and bid amounts may be slightly out of date.
