ACURA LEGEND - Everything You Need to Know | Up to Speed

Thanks to Acura for sponsoring this episode!

The Acura Legend lived up to its name and proved that Acura knew how to build a great car. They challenged luxury brands like BMW and Mercedes, showing everyone that you don’t need to spend a ton, to get a ton. From turbos, all wheel drive, to crazy hybrid systems, the Acura Legend crossed the pond and became an actual Legend.

    Hilarious video. No one does it like you! Interesting info about Acura too. The brand was never launched in the EU. The Legend was launched under the Honda flag. The Rover 800 was outselling the Legend, but neither of them ever sold more per year than each of ze Germans sold per month in this segment. In fact it’s worse than that. The Legend sold 1200 units in Europe in 1997, while the BMW on average sold more than 3.000 5-series PER WEEK in Europe that year.

    In the UK the Rover 800 was a big car, my father had 2 of them. Both with Honda engines. The 2.0 and 2.7ltre. We also had a handful of Honda legends. The Acura brand was only for American market, they were Honda legends everywhere else in the world. In Europe the German luxury cars dominate, Lexus has some market share but infinity has failed to make any progress. Acura not even bothered.

    So back in 1994 my homeboy AL (r.i.p. Allen Hall) who was a couple of years older than me and was definitely someone that a younger cat such as myself with aspirations of being a baller, (like AL was,) would look at as let's say, a "role model" if you will. Well like I said, my boy AL was a baller so when he said he got a new car and that it was a 93 Acura legend and that he was having his triple gold Dayton's put on it and after that he'd come swoop me up from my job and show me the car. Well needless to say that 93 legend with the gold acura paint sitting on triple gold D's was fuckin beautiful bro! Well I got in and we smoked some chronic, cuz you know that's what we called it back in the day, Lol! Well I already LOVED the way the car looked but when we were driving along and he hit the gas and that Acura took off like a rocket while negotiating a nice tight s curve with the greatest of ease I said "This car is so fuckin badass AL" , I want one!! I'll get one one day homeboy you'll see. Well, sadly, he in fact did not get to see, that 25 years later, I did in fact get my 1993 Acura legend (mine has the gold paint too, like AL's) I was blessed with this car by a wonderful woman named "Freida" and it's a little bit longer of a story than I feel like writing right now but I will tell you that I am not what you would call a "lucky" person, I am charmed and I live a charmed life, not a lucky one. My sisters say that if they could have just 1 ounce of whatever it is that I have they would pay whatever the price would be if they could buy it because of the amount of amazing things that I have unbelievably come through unscathed and smelling like a rose. Long story short, I saw the car and "Freida" was asking $2000 for it but I only had $1000. SHE said hold on, a second and came back and YES I WILL SELL YOU THE CAR FOR $1000. Well we met up the next day and I ended up only paying $980 for my car !! I love my Acura legend!! It's almost 30 years old and EVERYTHING FUCKIN WORKS, EVERYTHING

    Interestingly, The Sterling 800 had reliability issues that the Acura Legend didn't have. Now that I know Rover was involved, the poor reliability makes sense. The Legend coupes were really nice looking cars.. Still classy looking today, especially the 1990-95 models.
