1991 Honda Civic SIR - EG6
The introduction of the 1991 Civic from Honda was a watershed moment in compact car history. Fondly known by enthusiasts as the 'EG Civic', derived from its chassis code, this generation sparked a revolution in design, handling, and engineering most car manufacturers could only copy over the next couple of decades.
Take for example, the simple rear view mirror. It was the first mass produced car that had one mounted on the front windscreen for that clean seamless look. The door handles sit flush with the panels, instead of protruding out like eye sores. The rear hatch door was a work of art; splitting into two, so you can lift just the glass up to access the boot, or folding down the metal bottom for bigger objects. The rear seats fold completely flat, and there was a hidden compartment between the boot cover and spare wheel well.
The stylish one piece seats were straight out of a modern art gallery, and the flowing, curvy dashboard instantaneously made the boxy lines of other cars look dated; confined to the 80s.
Under the car, the front and rear featured double wishbone independent suspension, a choice dictated by Honda's engineers with F1 experience, allowing for unmatched handling at the limits of grip. The SiR came with a 1.6L double overhead cam engine with a funny valvetrain system...the Variable Valve Timing & Lift Electronic Control (VTEC yo), that allowed for fuel sipping economy around town, and a screaming race engine once the revs swooped past 5600RPM.
For sale here is an example of the genesis of modern hot hatchbacks. We had been restoring this slowly back to its glory days to enjoy it, but now we sadly have to let it go due to lack of space.
