This Flamenco Black Pearl Acura Integra Type R with only 102,000 miles popped up for sale on Bring A Trailer.
It’s always interesting to see just how well a used Acura Integra Type R makes it on a used car auction in this day in age. With only a couple thousand ever made for the U.S. market, USDM Integra Type R’s often pass through numerous hands due to its rarity. According to our used car friends over at the ever popular Bring a Trailer car site earlier today (Apr. 7,2017),\ a 2001 Acura Integra Type R with just over 100,000 miles has popped up for sale with some kind of reserve attached.

According to the ad’s travel history of this car, it looks like it was both driven and taken cared for to the utmost degree. This Acura Integra Type R has resided mostly in Louisiana and Texas before moving to Arizona until finding its current home in New Jersey. All modifications appear tasteful and reversible including a set of lowering springs and an aftermarket header. Although there have been five owners, this car has been involved in zero accidents.
Next to the Acura GS-R, the Acura Integra Type R is the most powerful DC2 that Honda made. Whereas the GS-R made an adequate 170 HP and 128 lb-ft, the Acura Integra Type R came with the infamous B18C5 motor with 195 HP and 130 lb-ft. What separated the Type R from other Acuras was its strengthened chassis which included more spot welds, thicker metal around shock towers, a lower subframe and weight reduction by 33 pounds.
According to official registry numbers, there were only about 3,800 Acura Integra Type R’s ever made. Although there were about eight times as many JDM Integra Type R’s made, those cars won’t be available to import until 2,021 thanks to importing laws. With the advent of smaller turbocharged motors, Honda has moved away from high screaming naturally aspirated motors like the Acura Integra Type R. And only as time marches on will prices on these NA four cylinders rise.
It used to be that if a car reached 100,000 miles the used price diminsedh significantly. We have a feeling despite that fact that this Acura Integra Type R will still sell plenty well.
