Available for auction is this 1996 Honda Integra Type R Sedan finished in White over a black interior. Introduced in 1995 for the Japanese market, the Integra Type R featured a reinforced chassis, weight reductions, and a hand-built B18C engine paired with a close-ratio 5-speed manual gearbox. This JDM icon has become widely regarded as one of the greatest front-wheel-drive performance cars of all time. This right-hand drive DB8 Sedan was imported to the U.S. from Japan in June of 2021 and subsequently treated to a comprehensive service that included a new battery, fluid and filter changes, a coolant system flush, alignment, new tires, and more. Now with approximately 60k kilometers (37k miles) showing on the odometer, this rare Integra Type R Sedan is being offered for auction by its seller out of Ohio.
This Integra Sedan comes finished in White and features Type R decals on the rear doors as well as body-colored side skirts and spoilers. The Japanese market Integra differed from the U.S. version with its enclosed one-piece headlight assemblies and red Honda badges. The windows have been tinted and the seller notes a small dent on the driver-side fender as well as some paint chips on the wheels. Detailed images are provided in the gallery. This Integra rides on a set of factory lightweight 15″ wheels finished in white and dressed in a set of new Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R tires.
The driver is situated on the right side of the cockpit within a deeply bolstered Recaro sport seat upholstered in black cloth with red contrast stitching. Equipment includes power windows, mirrors, and door locks, air conditioning, a metal shift knob, and a MOMO three-spoke steering wheel. An upgraded Pioneer Bluetooth head unit has been equipped and the seller reports the cabin to be in very good condition with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional.
Power comes from a hand-built 1.8L B18C DOHC inline-four with VTEC variable valve timing, hand-polished and ported intake ports, high compression pistons, undercut valves, revised intake and exhaust systems, and an 8,600 RPM rev limiter. This naturally aspirated engine produced up to 197 HP and 131 lb.-ft of torque when new. The front wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed manual transaxle and a Helical limited-slip differential. The Type R offered significantly improved performance compared to standard Integra models thanks to revised suspension tuning, thicker sway bars, a stiffer chassis, and weight savings in the form of reduced sound insulation, thinner windscreen glass, and lightweight wheels. Service carried out in July of 2021 included the following:
This sale will include original owner's manuals, Japanese service records, and a clean Ohio title. An incredibly rare sight on U.S. roads, this highly-collectible Integra Type R Sedan is not to be overlooked.
