The Acura INTEGRA TYPE R '97 is a Road car produced by Acura. Its only appearance was in the original Gran Turismo. The Type R is present in newer titles, however the '97 model has been absent after, being replaced with the '98 and '01 models.
Introduced 1997, the Integra Type R features a 195 hp, 1.8 liter, dual-overhead-cam, 16-valve VTEC inline 4-cylinder engine that puts out more horsepower per liter than any other normally aspirated mass-produced engine in the U.S. One of the Type R's most notable engineering achievements is its high-revving VTEC engine. Features unique to the Type R include hand-polished intake and exhaust ports and single-port intake manifold; a larger-diameter exhaust system to allow larger volume flow; and a torque-sensitive helical limited-slip differential. Outstanding cornering response and enhanced braking performance also are hallmarks of this limited edition vehicle. These are made possible by features such as overall vehicle weight reduction, lower overall vehicle height and aerodynamic refinements, racetrack-calibrated suspension, high-performance tires and lightweight aluminum alloy wheels, larger disk brakes with performance-oriented calipers, etc.
The Acura Integra Type R can be purchased from the Honda/Acura Dealership for 22,280 Credits and selected as an available vehicle in Arcade Mode listed under the B-Class. All this is only possible in the NTSC-U version of the game.
