The Acura Integra Could Return to Racing

Acura would love to hit the track with the new Integra, but the decision falls in someone else’s lap

Acura just revealed the new 2023 Integra, marking the name’s return to the market in nearly two decades (2006, to be specific), but what happens next? Well, if Acura has its way, it’ll be putting the Integra back on the racetrack yet again, but it’s not entirely up to Acura, and we’re talking about cross-company politics here.

The Reincarnated 2023 Acura Integra Prototype Revealed With Fastback Styling And Forced Induction

Not a lot of details were revealed, but the Integra will come with a 1.5-liter engine, a six-speed manual, and we know what it will look like

Acura has been hyping the new Integra for a few months now. It all started in August this year when the automaker officially announced that the moniker is making a comeback. The next month, we got to know that it will be a full-blown hatchback with fastback styling. And, finally, coming up with a kickass trailer announcing that the new Integra will feature a six-speed manual gearbox.

Fast forward to the present day, Acura has revealed the 2023 Integra prototype. It is a near-production version and we don’t expect any major changes to be made to the real deal. Unfortunately, the company didn’t give out a lot of details, but we at least know what it looks like.

The Nostalgia Lingers As Acura Exposes The New Integra Piece by Piece

Yeah, the new Integra will have that six-speed manual, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

As you already know, The Acura Integra is making a comeback. And based on the very first teaser, we know it’ll feature a unique blend of Civic Type R, Acura NSX, and typical Acura DNA. More recently we learned that it’s going to be a real-life hatchback as the universe intended, but outside of this, the bulk of what makes up the new Acura Integra is a bit of a mystery. Now, thanks to Acura’s most recent teaser (and tribute to previous models, including the RSX) we know it’ll feature a six-speed manual transmission, again, as the universe intended.

This Honda Integra Type-R Rendering Is Faithful To Both The Past And The Present

This Honda Integra Type-R Rendering Is Faithful To Both The Past And The Present

A 2022 Honda Integra Type-R needs to happen, and this rendering shows exactly how it needs to look

The Honda Integra Type-R is not a car that needs an introduction. It’s considered the best front-wheel-drive sports car ever made. The Integra Type-R had all the right ingredients out of the box. A nimble chassis, close-ratio five-speed manual, helical LSD, and of course, the B18C5 engine that revs to almost 9,000 RPM. Sadly, prices have sky-rocketed, and if you want one, you’d have to sell an arm and a leg. However, industrial designer Jordan Rubinstein-Towler has decided to give us his own vision of what a 2022 Honda Integra Type-R could look like.

Looking at the used Integra Type R market, that’s not a hefty price, trust us

If you could get into the possession of a ’90s Japanese sports car without paying a dime, what would it be? For some, the poison would be the Acura Integra Type R because 1) the car’s an icon and a blast to drive and 2) used Integra Type Rs cost an arm and a leg these days.

There’s something special about a tuned Honda going flat out on a race course. The sound of the four-cylinder’s soaring rpm’s is enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up, and when properly sorted, the speed these machines can achieve is undeniable. Such is the case with the lightened ‘Teggy Type R featured in this 3-minute, 15-second video from Hillclimb Monsters.

Donut Media Explains VTEC: Video

Donut Media Explains VTEC: Video

Is it some magical performance elf? Nay, ’tis SCIENCE!

Matching gas-gulping speed-making with frugal efficiency isn’t an easy thing to do. Some folks slap a turbo on it and call it a day, while others add some extra batteries and an electric motor and call it a hybrid. But what if you didn’t need either of those things to have your cake and eat it too? Well, turns out Honda has been doing exactly that since the ‘80s, and it’s called VTEC.

The acronym stands for Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control, and basically, the system works to modify the exhaust and intake valve timing in the head to better extract more efficiency from the engine. While older engine design used a single cam profile to time the valves, VTEC actually manages to change the cam profile for increased power when you want it and decent fuel mileage when you don’t.

The first example came out in 1989 with the JDM Acura Integra, eventually hitting the States a few years later with the high-tech Acura NSX. Ever since then, H-badge fanboys have never been the same.

There’s obviously a lot more to it than we’ve explained thus far, so hit play for all the details.

Acura Integra Could Get a Successor

Acura Integra Could Get a Successor

For years, the Integra represented accessible, sporty refinement, mixed with the renowned dependability of Acura’s parent company, Honda. Without question, the Integra was one of the most widely tuned cars in the history of aftermarket performance, and an enormous following of enthusiasts and parts makers remains today. Many clambered to experience the high-rev shriek of the Integra’s VTEC motor at full song. So when Acura halted production in 2006 with the DC5, also known stateside as the RSX, many lovers of the 2-door, front-drive sport coupe felt left out in the cold.

Now, however, Acura is trying to reclaim those sporty credentials. This year at SEMA, Acura brought a lightly-modified TLX and it’s twin-turbo GT sibling to showcase what can be done if someone with the intention of going fast buys an Acura. The race car is great if your commute consists of qualifying laps and battling for the checkered, but it doesn’t really mean a whole lot to anyone looking for a streetcar. The lightly modified TLX, on the other hand, looks good, but it’s still a grocery-getter on coilovers. While the TLX might make a decent family sedan, what Acura really needs is a two-door coupe that is both tunable and cheap enough to appeal to a younger crowd. What Acura really needs is a new Integra, and it looks like that may actually happen.

Speaking to Car & Driver, Acura chief designer Dave Marek was unable to divulge any specifics, but did hint at the possibility of a sporty, entry-level vehicle coming to Acura’s lineup sometime in the future: “A performance brand needs a flagship and it needs an accessible sport car. Not a sports car, but a sport car.”

If Acura does come through with an affordable sport car, Marek confesses it might happen in 2017. “There are lots of resources and activity going into making Acura back into what it was,” Marek said.

The Top 10 Cars of The Fast & The Furious

Now that the clock has finally run out and just hours away from the first showing of Fast Five - the fifth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise - we felt like it’s the right time to give proper respect to the characters that have made this movie franchise as fun as it has been since the first movie came out in 2001.

And if you think that we’re talking about resident leading men, Vin Diesel and Paul Walker, guess again. This list has very little to do with them, or their other co-stars for that matter, but more so about what they were driving during the first four movies. Yes, dear friends. This is a list to honor the Top 10 cars of the Fast and Furious franchise!

Do take note that we compiled this list based on our opinions so if you have any sort of reaction on the cars we chose and the number we gave them, you have the floor in the comments section to let us hear about it.

2005 Most Stolen Vehicle

The pattern of ‘clustering’ most frequently occurs with upper midsize cars like the Acura Integra, which accounts for eight of the top 25 most stolen vehicles. The Integra, along with the Suzuki Aerio (positions 12 and 13 on the list), are also part of a trend among what is commonly referred to as ‘tuner’ cars. These cars are popular with street racers, who look for vehicles packing a powerful motor in a lightweight and efficient package.
Perhaps most surprising is that in spite of escalating (...)

1986 - 2001 Acura Integra history

1986 - 2001 Acura Integra history

The Acura Integra, sold as a Honda in most of the world, was a small, sporty vehicle sold primarily as a hatchback. It was Acura’s smallest, least expensive model, designed to offer a competitor to vehicles like the Volkswagen Golf GTI, which was the most well known and popular "hot hatch" of the 1980s when the Integra was introduced. Although a sedan was available for several years, it was dropped when the vehicle transitioned to its current fourth-generation "DC5" platform, which is now sold as the RSX in North America.
