This is the all-new Acura Honda Integra
Blimey we’re jealous of Americans right now. Honda (well, Acura) is bringing back the Integra and this is what it’ll look like.
Technically speaking what you see above is the Acura Integra Prototype, but we doubt it'll change too much before it lands in dealerships next year and Acura has announced that it’ll be priced around the US$30,000 mark. Looks fantastic as a five-door coupe, doesn’t it?
There’ll definitely be a six-speed manual gearbox too, and a “high-output” 1.5-litre turbocharged VTEC engine. That’ll make it the first ever factory-turbo Integra.
The Indy Yellow Pearl paint on this prototype is borrowed from the NSX and pays tribute to the Phoenix Yellow Type Rs of the early 2000s. There are also 19-inch wheels, Brembo brakes and those ‘Chicane’ daytime running lights.
We’ll bring you more info on this – the first Integra to be built in America – as we get it. Lucky folk over there, aren’t they?
