Acura Brought Some Awesome Toys To The Integra Prototype Reveal

Classic Cars / Comments

Japanese classics galore.

Acura recently announced the revival of the Integra name, and if you know anything about Japanese tuner culture, you know that this is a big deal. Acura has done right by its fans by promising a manual gearbox and we also know that a Type S version is on the way. We've just had our first official look at what the production version will be like thanks to the reveal of a prototype intended to gauge the reactions of Integra enthusiasts, and boy, were there a lot of Integra enthusiasts in attendance. CarBuzz was at the reveal event where wed snapped some stunning pics of all sorts of Integras that were arguably even more of an attraction than the new prototype.

One of the stand-out attendees was the 1996 Integra GS-R from 2001's The Fast and the Furious. Complete with yellow underglow and a glitzy engine bay, this was spectacular to see in person. But it wasn't just show cars on display. Pretty much every kind of Integra was there, including five-doors that most wouldn't even recognize. Both Honda-badged and Acura versions were there, all in various states of tune ranging from bone stock to rally-spec. DA5 hatchbacks, DB models, and even the highly desirable DC5 (pictured below in blue with white wheels) were there, and the legendary Type R wearing the iconic red Honda badge was another star.

As for the new Integra, we haven't been given too many details, but we do know that multiple body styles are under consideration. The five-door hatchback that is definitely coming will be the first to arrive, and we're told to expect a starting price below $30,000. With the news that a Type S is likely, we're hoping that the Civic Type R will donate its turbocharged four-pot that, in its newest guise, could exceed the 306-horsepower rating of the outgoing model. Whatever happens, it's clear that Acura and Honda fans are eagerly awaiting the latest Integra, but for goodness sake, we wish they'd confirm a coupe model.
