Integra Type R 98 Spec - Type X.
Production number of this example is R-3289, stamped on a plaque located on the centre console. It’s a 2000 model of August 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. Suspension was retuned, 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. A fresh design of 5-hole 16-inch alloy wheel was employed, with corresponding tyre size increase to 215/45ZR16. 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: 4 channel Anti Lock brakes, Limited slip differential, Dual SRS airbags with Momo designed leather steering wheel, Climate control air conditioning, PAS, electric windows, original "Type R" fitted mats, rear wiper, blue tinted glass with privacy rear glass, front wind deflectors, remote controlled door mirrors, full alcantara Red 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, 16" alloys, large diameter discs.
A high quality Alpine CD/MD/Radio 200 Watt hifi, complete with TV and Satelite Navigation system and remote control is also fitted. Please note the Navi TV system will not work in the UK without significant modification (Expensive). Best Would be to remove the TV/Navi – and just keep the Audio installed. Audio equipment is supplied free of charge with this car in any case.
Interior is in excellent condition. This has been a non smoker's car since new. There are no faults to report aside from wear to the seat bolsters from age, although the material itself is only shiny, rather than creased and worn through. 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. If preferred, let me know and we can try to find either a better used seat, or even a replacement seat swab from Recaro, to re upholster the driver’s seat seat to look as new. I don’t know the costing for this at present, however.
The auction grade of this example is 4b This example is in excellent condition. Checking the bodywork carefully during after washing it I noticed the following: One pin dent on each rear quarter, 2 pin dents on each door, plus a light dent to the rear edge of the driver’s wing. Each of these panels will be repaired by a dent removal specialist. The rear bumper has a small dent / scratch in the middle and a touched in mark on the o/s corner. The front lip spoiler has some scratches to the corners and leading edge. Bumpers will be removed and repainted as required to repair correctly. Note there are some light scratches on the wheel rims, but nothing of particular concern.
We test drove 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. The car is £11,270.
