Drive a Honda Integra DC2 Type R near me
Honda’s Integra DC2 Type R model was only in production for a very short window of time - just three years between 1998 and 2001 - but in that time, it cemented itself as an iconic 90s car, as symbolic of the decade as Britpop and the ‘Rachel’ haircut.
It was a model that sold phenomenally well on pre-sale alone before it even reached the UK, thanks to universally positive feedback from the motor industry in Japan in 1997. A front wheel drive car, a lot of its acclaim came for its handling and performance.
The engineering in the Integra Type R is behind a lot of that, as it boasts a five speed gearbox, and a hand built 1.8 litre VTEC engine that powers out 190 bhp that helps it whizz from 0 - 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, 0 - 100 mph in just under 15 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 145 mph.
Cool Facts About the Honda Integra DC2 Type R
Numerous accolades and praise have been lavished on the Honda Integra DC2 Type R in its time. Motoring magazine Evo called it ‘the best front-wheel drive performance car ever’ in a 2006 issue, whilst the BBC’s Top Gear motoring show reciprocated, stating “There’s an overwhelming sense that this car was built to be brutally caned.”
On the second hand market, the Integra Type R’s value has increased exponentially in recent years. Provided it’s in good working order, free of modifications and with a mileage on or under the 10,000 mark, it’s probably worth about £8,500.
But with TrackDays, we have it available to hire at a price that won’t break the bank, for our range of Own Car Track Days, as you’ll see when you click above to book.
