1996 Honda Legend
Epic '90s luxury saloon packed with pioneering tech; 3.5 litre V6 with auto 'box; under 95k indicated with 19 service stamps and clean MOT until July 2022
Supplied new in June 1996 this smart Legend was at the time, Honda’s flagship executive saloon was the 3rd generation, known as the KA9 and is powered by a front mounted 3,5 litre V6 developing 212bhp driving the front wheels (unlike its German competition) via 5-speed automatic transmission.
Finished in Crescent Silver (A4) and wearing its original 16inch flat face multi-hole alloy wheels the car looks wonderfully understated, akin to a 90s Merc S-class and Lexus LS. The driver sits ensconced in anthracite leather with two-stage heated electric seats, wood trim, cruise control, sunroof, front fog lights, working remote central locking and boor release, digital climate control (A/C non-functional, parts in the boot although the heating /blower cool air still works normally its just not chilled) and original Honda stereo system.
The mileage indicator has, the vendor informs us become increasingly difficult to read of late (a common Legend foible) and is reputed to be c. 94,400 miles which is backed up by an impressive 19 service stamps, the last in March 2019 at 92,455 miles by Auto Union of Corby with all but this most recent service by either a Honda or Nissan main dealer. In addition, the folder includes the V5C showing 6 previous owners to our current, old V5C and a selection of invoices including a £520 spend in March 2019 on 2 new upper suspension arms, another for a timing belt and service kit at the same time.
The Legend comes with a current MOT valid until July 2022 which recorded the mileage at 94,277 plus 3 old MOT certificates. Offered at No Reserve, the highest bid takes this slice of 90’s executive motoring home with them. Tempting huh?.
