Honda Integra Type-R

The JDM Type R had the minor change long headlights that remained only for the JDM models while the world market version had the pre-facelift double round lights. Very few manufacturers redefine one of their hottest models and get it so right � chunkier good looks, increased power, superb chassis rigidity, more positive steering, improved grip and better brakes. As the gathered scribes stood back oohing and aahing at the prototype�s solid, sharp new look, the sleek headlight and grille combo, the bright red Brembo callipers and larger 17inch wheels, interest centred on the coupe�s 60mm higher roof line. A regional variant is known in North America as the Acura Integra Type R (ERA-2). In the rest of the world the RSX (DC1.5 CARB) is still called Integra Type-R. (This applies to only certain production versions of the DC5, in as much as there are differences in the brakes, suspension, motors and other parts of the DC5 Type R versus the DC5 Type S.)

Equipped with a close ratio 5-speed manual transmission and a Helical LSD, the DC2 Integra Type R had significantly improved performance and handling relative to the base model GS-R\Si\SiR Integra. Plenty. The 1.8-litre engine is replaced by a more refined 2-litre i-VTEC unit, which combines VTEC�s variable valve lift with continuously variable intake cam timing. The claimed quarter mile time is 14.3secs, nearly a second faster than the old car. The variable-assistance rack and pinion steering is as pure and precise as you will ever find on a front drive car, with 2.6 turns lock to lock. Combined with the superior chassis balance and stiffness, they lift cornering limits to new heights. Weight savings of 2.3kg per brake assembly help keep the curb weight down, but improved body and crash rigidity, larger engine and more metal add 72kg to the car�s overall weight, now 1173kg. Inside, the Type R features all the �R� trimmings we�ve come to expect � Recaro racing seats, Momo wheel, polished aluminium pedals and gearshift, etc.
