Integra Type R 98 Spec - Mugen Tuned!
This is only the 2nd ever example of an Integra 98 Spec R we are importing with extensive Mugen upgrades - presented to the highest standard of condition only Newera is known for sourcing. This car's priced affordably too - Once it's gone, another as good as this is unlikely, so if you want the best ITR available, this is it!
With fuel prices higher and Honda Type R's gaining in popularity as robust driver's cars, we concentrate on finding the very best and latest examples, to supply to those customers who want the ultimate quality available for their budgets. The DC2 Type R is considered by the Japanese as the best Integra Type R made, even better than it's replacement, the DC5 Type R. With double wishbone suspension at each corner and excellent balance, combined with a race car like 1.8 V-Tec engine producing 200 bhp driven through a close ratio gearbox coupled to a limited slip differential, this is a seriously capable driver's car! Note that Honda make the currect DC5 ITR without double wishbone suspension. A cost cutting exercise... To tuners in Japan, the DC2 98 Spec is still the best ever made.
This is a 98 Spec Type X as stamped on a plaque located on the centre console and inside the passenger door shut. Type X denotes black interior trim with red Recaros on a white car. It’s of 1998 + Spec. and so in addition to a quicker steering rack and suspension differences only fitted to JDM models, also carries the following factory modifications introduced in 1998:
To provide an increase in power to 200 bhp and also higher torque at low and mid rpm levels the exhaust manifold was re-designed. Suspension and brakes were improved to maximize driving performance and handling. Furthermore, the Integra type R 98 Spec adopted15-inch front disk brakes 14-inch rear disk brakes. ABS was a delete option - but fitted to this example. An SRS airbag-compatible steering wheel was designed by MOMO and High intensity Discharge (HID) headlights with additional option HID (yellow) driving lights, with over twice the brightness of halogen lamps were introduced. Front and rear bumpers were also re-designed to help modernise the look further. Glass was also changed from being of brown tint, to a light blue tint instead. As standard, the engine is making 200 bhp at 7,600 rpm with a V-Tec Zone that sounds goes much like that of a racing engine from 5,800 - 8,500 rpm, it's not hard to see why this car won so many admirers in Japan. 98+ Spec Factory fitted equipment includes: Limited slip differential, Climate control air conditioning, PAS, electric windows, original "Type R" fitted mats, remote controlled door mirrors, full alcantara black Recaro seats, HID headlights with front fog lights integrated into the light clusters, front, rear and underside braces, alloy Type R gear knob and pedals, large diameter discs, 16" lightweight forged alloys - have been uprated with super light and strong Volk Racing CE28N's, keeping the Honda specified Bridgestone Potenza sports tyres.

Interior is in excellent condition. This has been a non smoker's car since new. There are no faults to report aside from minor wear to the driver's vertical seat bolster from age although the seat's in excellent condition. It would appear the last owner of this car was a small Japanese person. Interior has been valetted so the car will be presented in immaculate condition.The original auction grade of this example is 4b (Auction sheet is available) This example is in excellent condition. Checking the bodywork carefully during after washing it we noticed only the following:Some very small scratches to the front and rear bumpers and the underside of the lip spoiler. Each of the faults described have already been repaired as part of our k.
Test Drive: We tested this DC2 for around 4km after warming it up. There are no mechanical faults to report with performance. Clutch is fine, with no warping from the brakes. Performance feels VERY strong especially in the V-Tec zone – It’s certainly not lacking in go! Even with standard tune as far as exhaust, etc is concerned, performance is strong from the 200 bhp this car gives as standard, so with the uprated breathing from Mugen it's even more balistic! Induction sounds very race car like, with the cold air fed Mugen air box. Clearly this car's been loved and fastidiously maintained. On performance extras and improvements alone, over £4,000 has been spent with Mugen, Volk Racing wheels and other parts added! Note: Oil change has recently been carried out.
