Someone Actually Paid More Than $112,000 For A 2000 Acura Integra Type R

We certainly live in a crazy world of expensive low mileage cars

The Acura Integra Type R is one of the most iconic and best-handling front-wheel drive (FWD) sports coupes in history. Back when it was still being produced, it has a base price of $23,500. Just recently, however, someone decided that the compact sports coupe is worth more than four times that.

This 2000 Acura Integra Type R in question is now listed at Bring A Trailer as sold, and is painted in Phoenix Yellow. The owner probably thought that 22 years later, the Integra Type R will be worth more than its original SRP, because this car has just accumulated 7,000 miles throughout its life.

Combined with the fact that it practically looks new outside, inside, and underneath its body, plus it even wears the car’s OEM Bridgestone Potenza tires that are dated in 2000, then you’ve certainly got a well-kept old-school Japanese car that’s worthy of fetching a high price. But for $112,112, which is basically the same amount of money for a Porsche 911 or a BMW M5, maybe not for me.

Apart from being pristine, this particular Integra Type R comes with the manufacturer’s literature, original pedals (though the ones mounted in the vehicle are the replacement ones), a new battery, a new anodized decorative cap, and an original Type R plaque that’s placed on the center armrest. This particular vehicle is production number 1,439.

While the 2000 Acura Integra Type R is down on power relative to the FK8 Civic Type R of today, its naturally-aspirated 1.8-liter B18C5 four-cylinder engine still had that signature VTEC kick that gives it a very throaty engine note. This engine produces 195 horsepower and 130 pound-feet of torque. Power is then sent through a five-speed manual driving the front wheels with a limited-slip differential (LSD).

One thing’s for sure, though. It seems that this generation of the Integra has been well-loved by everyone. Definitely much more than the upcoming four-door Integra that’s proved to be a lot more controversial than Acura probably hoped for.
