2001 Acura Integra Type-R is a 2 + 2-seater sports coupe with front wheel drive of Honda, often referred to as group-N is described racing cars street legal. 2001 Acura Integra Type-R was originally intended only for Japan and the US market and is part of the third generation of Integra models. January 1998, introduced the Integra exclusively in the Sports version “Type R” in Germany. Acura Integra Type-R was powered by a 1.8-liter naturally aspirated engine with the developed by Honda VTEC and a peak output of 140 kW (190 hp) and 178 Nm torque at 7300rpm. The force is transmitted via a 5-speed transmission and a 25-percent, Torsen, locking differential routed to the front wheels. As a result, the sporty coupe, which is relatively light at 1200 kg, accelerates to 100 km/h in 6.7 seconds and reaches a top speed of 234 km / h. The average consumption was estimated at around 8.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
Unlike the Acura Integra versions not offered in Germany the Type R had an aerodynamic package of a front and rear spoilers, the lift has been reduced by around 30%. In addition to a more sporty chassis tuning with progressive springs on the rear axle and thicker stabilizers on the front and rear axles, he also had special rubber bushes in the front lower cross-members, which helped to stabilize the braking and steering behavior of the front wheels to more touring in these driving conditions. In addition, the body was reinforced by additional plates in various areas critical to the stiffness, such as the wheel arches, the rear wheel arches and the roof between the C-pillars. The mass thus increased was counteracted by means of weight reduction measures. The span of the rear wheel bearing has been increased to give more stability to unwanted camber changes to the rear axle.
Although the Japanese model of the Acura Integra was offered from the 98 spec model with larger 16 “wheels and 215/45 ZR16 tires, the new 5×114.3 pitch circle, and the larger brake system, but the original rims were adopted for the European model And tire size (15 “, 195/55 R15). Likewise, the 4-1 stainless steel manifold built in the 98spec in Japan was not included in the model for the European market, the transmission with the longer 4th and 5th gear as well as shorter axle ratio already. This exhaust manifold helped the Japanese model to another torque curve with the maximum at a lower speed, due to the now lower engine speed after shifting from 3rd to 4. Corridor.

In Japan, the Acura Integra Type R was offered in several variants, with the model year “98spec” the biggest technical changes compared to the initially published “96spec” were introduced, in later model care measures, the changes were rather cosmetic. The two 2001 Acura Integra Type-R model versions mentioned differed by a variety of moderate technical changes.
