Honda Integra Type R (DC5) at the Japanese used car auctions
Honda has made the Integra since the mid-1980s and this, 4th generation DC5, is the final version which ended production in 2006. In Japan the this generation Integra came came as a Type S or the Type R. This one is a Honda Integra Type R (DC5) and is the one everyone is after.
The Honda Integra Type R (DC5) was a bit lighter and the 2000cc I-VTEC engine put out around 220hp. It has a 6 speed manual transmission, LSD, Brembo brakes, Recaro front seats and firmer suspension. Compared to the S, the Type R lacked a few creature comforts.
Condition wise, this Type R DC5 was basically excellent inside and out. Low kms, only 30,000kms on the clock and I think the condition of the car reflected such low kms. There is a bit of wear on the side bolsters of the drivers seat and the interior could do with a quick clean up but nothing serious and certainly no interior damage. Aftermarket navigation has been fitted and not fitted very well, but it’s a simple job to remove and there are no screws or anything which will damage the interior.
Exterior – paint and body overall fantastic, a couple of little scars that some people may want to address. Biggest exterior blemish is the bottom of the rear bumper on the right side, has been scraped on something quite badly.
Underside, there is a sprinkling of surface rust, didn’t appear to be that serious, but rust is of course always an issue. The biggest problem is in the boot, under the spare tyre. Looks like water has gotten in there somehow and there is quite a lot of surface rust in there. The jack is very badly corroded.
