This 1997 Honda Integra Type R may wear Acura badges and be registered as an Acura but in reality, it is a Honda. As such, we will refer to it as a Honda, a very expensive one at that.
Any Honda fanboy will know that the DC2-generation Integra is one of the most desirable vehicles from the automaker’s golden age of performance cars in the late 1990s and early 2000s.Introduced in 1995 to the Japanese market, the Integra Type R pushed the boundaries of what front-wheel drive cars could do. In fact, it is still considered one of the best handling front-wheel drive vehicles ever produced.Those in the United States got their first taste of the DC2R in 1997 where production was limited to just 320 examples. This particular Type R from Boyko Motors is number 35 of those 320 and currently has a sky high asking price of $44,900.Is it worth that much? Well, depending on who you are, maybe, maybe not. Prices for the DC2 Type R have been steadily increasing over recent years as enthusiasts realize just how special it is. Additionally, the young people that owned, or dreamed of owning, Type Rs when they were new now have money and a healthy dose of nostalgia.This Type R is finished in the extremely desirable Championship White paint and has only ever been driven 14,423 miles. It looks to be in immaculate condition and certainly has a lot more history than a brand new Civic Type R, for example.Does anyone have a spare $45,000 lying around? I’m sold.
