This one-owner, unmodified 1997 Acura Integra Type R is number 37 of the 320 made for the U.S. market that year and has 1,191 actual miles.

It has its original Championship White paint, and the interior is black suede with red stitching. The Type R engine comes hand-ported by factory Acura tuners to produce nearly 200 horsepower from the normally aspirated 1.8-liter 4-cylinder VTEC engine.

These front-wheel-drive cars were outfitted with several unique components, all with performance in mind. A close-ratio 5-speed manual transmission was used, and a limited-slip differential was added so both front tires would pull at optimum traction. These cars came with larger anti-lock brakes, larger sway bars and additional body bracing to reduce body flex for better, more consistent handling. This car comes with all of the original purchase documentation and promotional items, including the window sticker, bill of sale, unopened special Type R key and spare key set. The original owner’s manuals are in a leather Acura binder with a courtesy air gauge and flashlight.
