Duct Tape Honda Civic Goes 150+MPH!

By -

Because few things in life are cooler than laying down a sub-10-second quarter-mile time in a Civic covered in duct tape.

It’s true that we at Honda-Tech have pretty much seen it all when it comes to Civic builds. From LS swaps to Lambo doors, there are many different strokes for different folks. That being said, we’d never really come across someone who’d opted for duct-taping instead of painting their car.

Yes, high-quality duct tape may be used in stock car racing and other motorsport disciplines as a way to temporarily hold carbon fiber or fiberglass panels together, but not as a “design” tool. When the owner was asked by the 1320video crew about his unorthodox choice, he insinuated that after dumping all his money into the build (motor) he didn’t have money to get it painted. After being teased about the look of it, he simply decided to tape it up!


Under the hood, you’ll find a 2.0-liter Honda motor paired up with a 64mm turbo, which he describes as a “pretty basic setup.” Hey, the engine setup may be basic, and but his “paint job” is not. In addition, the Civic’s performance is nothing but remarkable — as in 9.74 seconds at 147.44 mph.
Don’t take our word for it. Enjoy the video!
