Say you decided your 1994 Acura (nee Honda) Legend coupe was a little bit limp-wristed. Not hard to see why, with just 172kW being tasked with dragging the Legend's bum around.

Of course, the only reasonable thing to do would be to spin the Legend's V6 engine 90 degrees, add a couple of turbochargers and direct drive to the rear wheels. Problem fixed.

BUT, that's not enough. Being a resident of the USA you've just GOT to rebody your Acura to look like an R34 Nissan Skyline GT-R - a car that's hen's-tooth rare in the Yoo-Ess and one that's worshipped on a cultish level by Japanese car fanboys.

Hear those sirens? That's the taste police, and they're comin' for ya.

The fact that it's a rear-wheel-drive Honda adds an immense amount of coolness and street cred, and 268kW is a handy power figure too. But did it really need the GT-R bodykit?

We say it didn't, but when it comes to modified cars such things are entirely subjective. It's true what they say: one man's trash is another man's Nissan-bodied Honda.

Thanks for the tip, Brad!
