The Type R is a limited edition model designed for the most serious street racers. The special colour scheme of Championship White with red decals commemorates the first time Grand Prix F-1 Championship using the HONDA racing engine in 1965.
The latest Honda Integra Type R is powered by a 2.0-liter DOHC I-VTEC engine developed specifically for excellent intake and exhaust efficiency with a maximum power output of 220PS this is coupled with a new close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission. The new K20A Engine also combines the high-rev intake/exhaust valve timing and lift variability of VTEC technology with VTC (variable timing control) to achieve a maximum power output of 220PS. The re-designed Engine is approximately 10kg lighter than the B18C Type R engine.
A newly developed close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission uses multiple synchronizing cones for all gears, including a triple-cone synchronizer in 1st and 2nd gears and a double-cone synchronizer in 3rd through 6th gears.
The new Honda Integra Type R has an ultra-lightweight forged chrome-molybdenum steel flywheel fitted. A lightened and balanced flywheel makes the car more responsive and gives instant power when the driver accelerates. The latest Type R features Recaro front bucket seats and leather wrapped MOMO steering wheel. The front disc brakes have been jointly developed with Brembo for extra stopping power. <continue. >
