In-game description[edit | edit source]
"The Type R that made history with its quality cornering performance."
The fourth-generation Honda Integra Type-R appearing in 2001 was different from all previous Integra Type Rs. Until then, Integra Type-R models were based on a Civic/Integra platform that was further tuned by Honda. But in developing the new Integra, the Type-R was designed from the ground up.
Although the new Type-R retained the character of previous incarnations, namely a focus on ride comfort and civility, the new car was faster and more nimble than any Integra Type-R that came before it. The engine was a new-generation K20A, an i-VTEC-equipped 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4 that produced 217 HP and 151.8 ft-lb of torque. It displayed excellent throttle response, thanks in part to a new lightweight flywheel, which enhanced its throttle-steering abilities. The gearbox was a close-ratio 6-speed manual employing a newly-developed multi-cone synchromesh in all gears.
The suspension was changed from the four-wheel double-wishbone layout of the previous generation to struts up front and double-wishbones at rear. The car was also Honda's first to come equipped with Brembo brakes, reinforcing the fact that track performance was the car's primary focus.
The front-wheel-drive Integra Type R performed admirably through corners, with very limited understeer. The handling balance of the car was near-neutral and body roll was kept in check by the taut shock and springs. The model unfortunately ceased production in 2006, but its name is forever branded in Honda's automotive history.
