Zero to Hospital in 2.7 Secs: 1989 Acura Death Kart


What did that dude in the Fast and Furious say? I live my life one quarter of a mile at a time. 10 seconds later, I crash and then I'm free. At least that is what he would have said if this had been his whip. Find this 1989 Acura Death Kart offered for $2,000 near Anchorage, AK.  Tip from Zach Z.

Per the seller:
Custom built chassis for auto cross, custom car or what ever your imagination wants to do with it. It has a 1992 Acura Integra motor & 5 speed trans (about 3500 miles on them both) mounted in the rear with fully adjustable suspension, coil over Carrera shocks and 16" wheels.. Wilwood Brake and Clutch pedal assembly and factory Honda brake calipers. There is a fuel cell along with fuel pumps and lines along with the engine and fuel management computer and wiring. 2 Steel Framed racing seats, tilt steering and a shortened shifter. Should do 140 mph plus when completed as it only weighs about 1000 lbs. Fast as hell!

I have to many projects and this one needs to find a home where it will be enjoyed and used.

Great for autocross, drag racing, road racing, drifting or a custom street car.

  3. Seems like with a vehicle like this, you'd really want a full cage. Not just a sketchy rollbar with no diagonal bracing. Fun until you roll it.

  4. Alask-a question. Who would go 140mph in this?

  5. It's the gravel in the crotch that would be the deal-breaker for me.

  6. I feel like you could afford the weight penalty of a complete set of floorboards?

  7. From the look of it, the gas tank is between you and the engine? Talk about needing a flame suit! I guess that's okay if you are Johnny Storm.

  8. In the early 1990s, Honda introduced the NSX sports car to its Acura line up. It stayed true to Honda's reputation and matched its competitors while undercutting their prices. vancouver car shipping
