In-game description[edit | edit source]
"The 4th generation Integra Type R, praised by the world for its superb cornering performance."
Unlike the Type R models before it, the 2001 Honda Integra Type R was an all-new machine engineered from the ground up, as opposed to a spiced up version of an existing model that comprised of a stiffer suspension and new body kit. As a result, Honda engineers were very thorough in endowing the car with a high degree of performance and refinement, but not at the expense of everyday driving comfort.
For example, sound insulation was taken out to save weight, but the engineers made a concerted effort to reduce noise and vibration to the absolute minimum to secure a high level of comfort. That said, the driving performance of this Type R was greatly improved over its predecessors. This was thanks mainly to what sat under the hood: a revised K20A motor that was a 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4 with i-VTEC that pumped out 217 HP and 151.8 ft-lb of torque.
It featured a lightweight flywheel for improved throttle response and was mated to a close-ratio 6-speed manual gearbox with multi-cone synchro gears. The suspension employed struts up front and double wishbones at the rear, while the brakes were supplied by Brembo, making this Type R the first Honda equipped with factory Brembos.
The Honda Integra Type R could arguably have been the best handling FF (Front engine, Front drive) sports coupe in the world in its day. Sadly, the car's lifespan was a short one. Facing declining coupe sales in Japan, the Type R ceased production in July 2006.
