Pristine 1987 Honda Prelude sells for an outrageous sum
Someone just paid $120,000 for a 36-year-old Honda. No, we don’t know why either…
We’ve seen some impressive auction results over the past few years, and while many high prices have raised eyebrows, the sale of a 1987 Honda Prelude (BA1) at auction for a staggering $US79,000 ($AU120,000) just raises questions.
While the red, manual car does have low mileage (4200mi or 6700km), it has never featured in a movie, been owned by a celebrity, or bookended a production run.
It’s just a mint-condition example of the second-generation Honda sports coupe – and double the previous record price for a Prelude of its vintage.
