what kind of Legend is this??(kind of big pic, so 56k beware)

I have never seen anything quite like this before...Maybe it's the angle that the picture was taken at, or something. But i have never seen headlights, a grill, or a bumper like this on a Legend before. It almost looks like an RL, but honda...ahh! I'm confused! Or maybe I'm jsut dumb, I don't know

Can anybody identify this type of Legend? I searched "honda Legend" on google and this was one of the first pics to show up.



Edit: I guess it's just an EDM Legend. I found a few more pics of what I'm guessing is an EDM car. Are these a lot different from USDM Legends? Can anybody give some more info on these??

The united states is one of the few countries that has Acura.

Japan has a honda legend which equals the Acura RL.

Thats a Honda "Legend" AKA Acura "RL"

Acura is just a division of Honda, and Acura decided to change the "Legend" name to "RL" in 1996 since most people were more aware of the LEGEND name than they were with the Acura division...

so all Acura RLs that you see are still Honda Legends mostly everywhere else in the world.

the Acura Legend became the RL
the Acura Vigor became the TL (complicated as hell in Japan since there was like an Accord Sabre and Accord Vigor or somethin or other...cant remember all the details )
and the Acura Integra eventually became the RSX

and i believe our Acura TSX is now the JDM Honda Accord...is that right?

I knew that Acura pretty much only existed in the United States, but i didn't know that they continued to make the "Legend" (RL) in Japan. So after 1995 they pretty much stopped making the second gen Legend and made theirs into the RL, but kept the name Legend?

yep...everywhere else in the world (with the exception of maybe another country or 2) all 1996 and newer Acura RLs are still Honda Legends

That is the AcuraRL. In Japan and Europe, they do not call it Acura RL, they kept the original name "Honda Legend".


The NEWEST AcuraRL 2005 is also a Legend.....
I believe the Legend is in its' 4th generation now? or is it 5th?

Hmm, I always wondered about all that stuff. And like, what they called the TL and RL and what have you over seas. Well thank you for clearing that up for me. It was very helpful.

On a second note, what is that in your sig? is that really a proto? or just something you photoshopped? I think it looks great!

Saber's and Inspires are virtually identical, plus there is no JDM version of the CL, it's only made in N. America.
