KITT is a 1986 Accord LX that came to me completely stock with about 138K miles logged on the odo, but now it's pretty nice with 186K.
I do not plan to race KITT, and I haven't yet timed it in the quarter mile, but I drove it from 0-60 on flat freeway onramps three times to get an approximate measure of its [dismal] acceleration capability. Below are some official Honda figures.
|Engine:||12-valve Single Overhead Cam (SOHC) Inline 4 cylinder with two-barrel carburetor|
|Power:||98 hp @ 5500 RPM|
|Torque:||109 lb-ft @ 3500 RPM|
|0-60 MPH||estimated 10.3 seconds new, 12.7 seconds as tested in KITT|
