About ACURA Legend

The Honda Acura Legend is a mid-size luxury/executive car manufactured in Japan. From 1985 to 1995, it was sold in the United States and Canada as a sedan, which was classified as a full-size car, and a coupe, which was classified as a mid-size car, under Honda’s luxury brand, Acura (similar to how the Honda Accord is set up today). It was the first flagship sedan sold under the Acura nameplate until it was renamed the Acura 3.5RL in 1996. The 3.5RL was the North American version of the Honda Legend KA9 series.

With the voluntary export restraints negotiated by the Japanese government and US trade representatives in the 1980s, restricting mainstream car sales, the opportunity for Japanese manufacturers to export more expensive models arose. Following the Legend and Honda’s Acura division’s initial success in competing against established European and American luxury manufacturers, Toyota and Nissan created the Lexus and Infiniti brands, respectively, to compete in the luxury car market.

On October 22, 1985, Honda introduced the model in Japan as their premier luxury model, and in North America for the 1986 model year as the top of the line model for its then-new Acura lineup. Sedans were the first to hit the market, powered by a 151 hp (113 kW) 2.5 L C25A V6, with coupes following in 1987, powered by a new 161 hp (120 kW) 2.7 L C27A engine. For 1988, sedans received a new engine.

The Legend was the first Honda vehicle to feature a V6 engine in production. The Legend was the result of a joint venture with Britain’s Austin Rover Group called Project XX, which began in November 1981 with the two companies signing the Austin Rover-Honda XX letter of intent to replace the Rover SD1 and provide a luxury vehicle for Honda. The Rover Company had a long established reputation as a luxury car manufacturer in the United Kingdom and Europe, as demonstrated by the Rover P6, and Honda wanted to introduce a luxury car for both the domestic Japanese and American markets. The Legend was the result of the collaboration, and the corresponding British version was the Rover 800-series, which was badged as Sterling in the United States and competed with the Legend.

Rover also wanted to return to the American market after selling only 1,500 cars there in 1971 and making a brief return in 1980, selling 800 Rover SD1s by offering the Sterling.

The second generation units were introduced on October 24, 1990, with a 200 hp (149 kW) SOHC (C32A) engine mated to either a standard 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed automatic transmission. The second generation Legend was a larger and more streamlined vehicle (drag coefficients were actually higher at 0.34 for sedans and 0.32 for coupes). The shape was referred to as a “fuselage,” and it had rear-wheel drive proportions made possible by the use of a longitudinally mounted engine, which was unusual for front-wheel-drive automobiles.
