This Honda Prelude is stunning, it's so good that James from Donut Media reckons this is how Steve Jobs would have made it. Is he right? Let's find out.

Full disclosure before we go any further, this 90s-era Honda Prelude is my personal favourite. Hugely underrated when it made its debut, this version of the Prelude was overlooked for reasons unbeknown to me.

Yes, the 90s was arguably the best decade for Japanese sports cars, think Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7, Mitsubishi 3000GT and more. Here in sunny South Africa though, we didn't get all of these cars, perhaps that's why I have such a fondness for the Prelude.

Back to the video though, and the car that James thinks Steve Jobs would have created if he had a Honda project car, courtesy of a chap named, Big Mike.

This is a 1992 Fourth-generation Prelude that has received a complete overhaul. The clip below goes through every detail, from bumper-to-bumper, explaining the build and how it became the car it is today.

It is exceptional, and as James says, "It might be one of the most outlandish and obsessive Honda builds ever attempted..." There is custom fabrication everywhere, it's got a modified, turbocharged Honda F20B, with custom, well, everything. It's slammed, the body has been widened to accommodate those fat wheels.

Smaller details include bolts and plugs that have been through a CNC machine. It has a one-of-a-kind, hand made front bumper, and the side-skirts are custom too.

Hop inside, and you've got a roll-cage integrated into the chassis. The dash has been covered, literally everywhere, in Alcantara, and the display has been replaced with a single screen. Even the gear lever has been specially fabricated and left naked for everyone to see.

There are a ton more details for you to ogle in your own time, so hit the play button below and remind yourself just how terrific the Honda Prelude actually is.
