It’s Friday so here is another video to enjoy: Nomuken drifting a Honda City Turbo II!
You can actually drift a Honda City Turbo II then? I thought they were front wheel drive!
Well yes you can: with a little bit of help from the handbrake and a Toyota Starlet Glanza V EP91 Turbo engine. The Honda City Turbo II also got the nickname bulldog, so does the Chihuahua refer back to the Toyota Starlet? Like a fancy dressed up hairless skinny bulldog?
Just a random picture I encountered browsing this week: a Honda City Turbo II at the Suzuka Circuit collection hall!
It reminds me of some Youtube movie I posted a long time ago about a Honda City Turbo cup race but the video has been removed now. If only I could watch it again and search for the car above…
Anyone seen a Honda City Turbo cup race posted on Youtube lately? 😛
It is no secret that I am a huge Honda City Turbo fan and it feels terrible watching this video by Wasabicars:
The video shows a small junkyard where not only three convertibles can be found, but also two more rare Honda City Turbo IIs. Also known as the Bulldog…
My interest in the Honda City Bulldog hasn’t died out yet. What about this Bulldog doing a close escape during a Bulldog cup race?
Amazing how much that car can withstand! It is doing a full roll @2:48, survives it and the driver even recovers the car from the gravel and returns to the pit without much trouble! That’s one sturdy car! I want one now! 😉
I couldn’t let go the combination of the Honda City and the Motocompo, so I did some searching upon the topic of foldable motorized bikes and found this:
The Motocompo successor: the Honda e-DAX
The e-DAX was a prototype shown at the Tokyo Motor Show 2001 as a foldable bike for the Honda Bulldog prototype. What a coincidence that the Honda City Turbo II was nicknamed the Bulldog (it really looked like one!) and the Motocompo’s bigger brother was called the Dax in Europe.

The e-DAX only weighted 25kg and could easily be folded into a compact package. The e-DAX has unfolded the same dimensions as the Motocompo but was rougly twice as small when folded. Also the weight was only half of the Motocompo. I really wonder why Honda never actually tried to sell the e-DAX…
