SPOON CIVIC HATCH ON SLICKS: Can I have one please?March 1, 2010 12:01 am
Despite the other more expensive and faster machinery sitting around Type One, this little Civic caught the eyes of quite a few in our group.
Honda people are going to have to forgive me if this is a particularly famous car, because I have no idea.
Otherwise, just enjoy the pics.
OK, so we have a side-exit exhaust and slick tyres. You may have noticed the pneumatic jacks in the first shot.
Damn it, look at those centerlock wheels and those brakes.
That looks like a rollcage in there.
Hatch locks and release cables weigh too much.
Brake bias adjuster, swaybar adjuster, internal fuel lines, fire suppression system. This is looking pretty serious.
Sorry about the terrible photo. Notice where the redline is marked on the tacho.
Delicously jammable shifter.
Take another look at those brakes. It’s pretty obvious this car was meant to do lap after lap until the fuel ran out.
I was at this event, but I don’t remember the car. Once again, I have no idea if it’s famous or not.
A question for Honda people: how do you refer to this Civic? It’s the one before the EF, right?Tags: Civic, Honda, Spoon Sports

It is the EF Alexi, stunning car :):)
So the models with the one piece and two piece nose section are both EF?
Not too sure the difference with the different front ends to be honest dude
yeah this is an EF but imagine this….
this car slammed on some super wide 14in. wheels with demon camber.
i know i might get bashed for this but i really could care less hahaa!
i can dream, right?
This car is an EC Civic, build from 1984 till 1988, after that you have the EF indeed
NO! You may NOT dream.
Okay a little.
I’d like to see some footage of it tbh, it looks like it’d go HARD. Where’d you find it?
This is Civic E-AT.The third generation civic (1984–1987)
EF was fourth generation civic(1988–1991)
Honda calls this body style “AT”:
Honda’s history website is badass:
HOT, any engine shots? 😉
yeah i like it. screams hardcore…now to find some footage!
Pretty sure it is an AH model, as I have one. Although not anywhere near as awesome as this. Some engine shots perhaps??
It’s an A-series Civic. Third-generation. WOWSERS, this must cost hundreds of thousands of dollars if sold in the US. JUST WOW, what a find! I’m not even a Honda fan, nor an expert. But I know how JDM Honda geeks must feel after seeing this. I bet mere mortals can’t acquire parts like those without losing some fingers and a kidney. Engine is a prehistoric D15A2.
Yep this is a Civic E-AT (Wonder Civic as they called it back in the day).
As I recall it’s a 1985 model and it’s so special to Spoon because this was the first Spoon race car. It was Ichishima-san’s first race car that he called his own when he was still a racing driver. This little Civic was also the first Civic to enter the Japan Touring Car Championship series (please correct me if I’m wrong). It kind of defined what Spoon is today. That’s why it is so special!!! 😀
those rims look tight .. would look nice on my Skoda 120 😀 ;D

Sounds pretty crazy in this vid i just found !
YES! YES! YOU F**KING ROCK!
Honda tuning piece of history. Would love to hear it power shifting 🙂
Ugh, this was probably the least-researched article I’ve ever posted on here. It was bad and I feel bad.
Never mind, at least some of you guys know what’s up, thanks for the links.
one of the best civics that i want to see lapping out some newer ones.
This is AT (third generation), not EC/ED/EE/EF (fourth generation)…
Cool article nonetheless (long time listener first time… you know the rest!) and yeah I’ll reinforce it’s an AT, by virtue of it having a DOHC ZC (almost definitely) engine or at least based on one. Awesome to see some detailed shots of one of these period touring cars though. 🙂
any sport or adjustable suspension 3rd gen civic?
me just swap my 3rd gen civic big vtec and have some prob in handling..wonder if anyone can help me got an adjustable 4 this civic..
Spoon E-AT, 200+ hp ZC, this can meant business
This is an EA, shame to those who said EF, they aren’t true Honda enthusiasts haha.
aggred with vik says, that is an EA or SB-3 with special modified/ tune for over 200HP and damn..that’s rock!
