Honda Racing White
With fuel prices higher and Honda Type R's gaining in popularity as robust driver's cars, we concentratr 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, 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.
Production number of this example is R-2503 stamped on a plaque located on the centre console. This is a 98 Spec Type D as stamped on a plaque located on the centre console and inside the passenger door shut. Type D denotes black interior trim on a white car. It’s a 2000 model of May registration. 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. An SRS airbag-compatible steering wheel was designed by MOMO and High intensity Discharge (HID) headlights 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, Dual SRS airbags with Momo designed leather steering wheel, 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.

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 seat bolsters from age, although the material itself is not worn thin. It would appear the last owner of this car was a small Japanese person. We will be valetting the interior and most of the marks on the driver’s seat should come off. The auction grade of this example is 4b This example is in excellent condition. Checking the bodywork carefully during after washing it we noticed only the following: The front lip spoiler has some scratches to the corners and leading edge- underneath. That's all!!!
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 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.
