The Honda Integra Type-R (DC5) is a sporty version of the final-generation DC5 Honda Integra compact sports coupe.
The Honda Integra DC5 is the fourth and final generation of the Honda Integra compact sports coupe, introduced in Japan on April 13, 2001, and produced from July 2001 to July 2006.
In concordance with the introduction of the Integra's platform mate, the seventh-generation Civic being introduced in 2000, the Integra joined the Civic in abandoning Honda's traditional double-wishbone suspension at both ends and adopted MacPherson struts in the front and trailing arm type suspension in the rear along with the new K-series engine supplanting the B-series.
The K-series engine features intelligent VTEC (or i-VTEC), which electronically adjusts valve lift, valve duration and valve timing, giving the 2.0 L engine a flatter torque curve relative to previous VTEC implementations which only adjusted valve lift and valve duration.
The Integra Type R, sold in Japan had reduced weight, a 220 PS / 164 kW / 217 hp K20A I4 engine (Japan-only; Oceania models have an engine similar to the Acura RSX-S), 6-speed close-ratio manual transmission, as well as a helical limited slip differential (LSD), stiffer springs and shocks, 4-piston Brembo brakes, 17-inch 5 double spoke wheels with Bridgestone Potenza tires, Recaro suede seats, leather wrapped MOMO steering wheel, body trim, and more. The Type R lacked many of the luxury features (like vanity mirrors or side airbags) in the Type-S, true to its racing heritage. The C package on the Type R added various accessories like the rear window wiper, remote control folding mirrors. JDM Integras had three interior colors available. Black was standard on the Type-iS/Type-S. Type R had choices of black/blue/red interiors (including color matching Recaro seats), depending on exterior colors.
The Honda Integra Type-R was added in the Elite Cars Update as a mid Class B car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 1089
- This is identical to the ED Design Torq.
- MAX rank: 1464 (+375)
- MAX+PRO rank: 1604 (+140)
- Tuning Kit bonus: +77
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 515
- Nitro Efficiency: 6/9/12
- Upgrade Rank Percentages:7.5/75/7.5/10
The Integra is one of the most nitro-focused cars in Class B, alongside the Peugeot SR1 and Porsche Cayman GT4. Because of this, the Integra features the lowest raw top speed of any Class B car, even lower than the DS Survolt but has fast accleration. The Honda Integra Type R has decent handling with a wide Drifting radius.
Overall, the Integra can be described as a continuation of the ED Design Torq, another nitro-focused car from Class C. The Torq has the same starting rank, initial speed values and nitro efficiency as the Integra. The Torq also has a slightly larger final nitro and a much lower raw top speed, with a lower final rank. The Torq's acceleration and drifting are superior to the Integra, while the Integra's handling is superior to the Torq.
The Torq and Integra were very competitive in Multiplayer, although both are inferior to the Shelby Cobra 427, BMW M2, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition and Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition. On the other hand, the Integra and Torq could compete with the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, Porsche 959 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.
The Integra was very competitive in Multiplayer with a nitro-focused tune. The best tune to start with was 0004 0000, and could be extended to 0005 0505. Extra speed can be added through MAX raw top speed upgrades, although doing too many will reduce the competitiveness of the Integra.
With the inclusion of the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition, the Honda Integra Type-R has lost all of its usability as the R8 e-tron is superior over the Integra in all performance aspects.
The Honda Integra Type-R counts towards the "Japanese Dragons" collection. A total of 925,000 is awarded for completing both versions.
The Integra had an original buying price of 450,000 or 2,650 to purchase. With the Motorcycles Update, it requires 8 of its Rare-rarity Blueprints to be assembled. Assembly takes 2.5 hours to finish and can be skipped for up to 214.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 1,020,000 while Pro Kits require 341,600, 16 of each Class B Part, 12 Initial & Early Techs each, 24 Mid-Techs and 24 i4 Engines.
The Integra Type-R was on sale for a limited-time during the following dates:
The Integra's BP cards, along with the Marussia B2's BP cards, were given as a Daily Bonus reward if the player logged in for at least 25 days in October 2017 and 2018.
