The 2001 Acura Integra Type-R is a sport compact that appears in all main titles of the Forza series except Forza Horizon.

The Type-R is the top-of-the-line model of the last generation Acura Integra, thoroughly reengineered for maximal handling and greater speed. Upon its introduction, the Type-R had the highest power per liter (108 hp/l) out of all naturally aspirated engine cars in North America, which was later superseded by the Honda S2000.

The Type-R was rebranded as a Honda model outside of North America. A Type R model for the following model generation was only made available for right-hand drive markets.

Description Edit

The Type-R name has become legendary for a good reason: there have been few front-wheel drive cars so rewarding to drive as the Acura Integra Type-R. A quick spin around a course well-suited to the Integra’s neutrally balanced handling, like Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, will demonstrate that the Type-R is an apex-carving scalpel. Then there’s the sound of the highly-developed 1.8-liter four—when the VTEC kicks in on the motor’s way up to a stratospheric 8,600 RPM redline, it’s clear this coupe means business. A whole generation of car enthusiasts grew up with the Integra Type-R being their ideal sports coupe—a blank slate for modification already pretty hot right out of the box. Hot, but subtle—you might miss the taller rear wing and model-specific lightweight wheels if you’re not looking for them. Of course, there’s nothing subtle about its performance, and there are few brand-new front-drivers that can keep up when the going gets twisty.

SpecificationsEdit

The Type-R is based on a lightened chassis with double-wishbone suspension on all corners and four-wheel disc brakes that utilise ventilated front discs. Weighing 2639 lb (1197 kg), the Type-R has the same weight as its Japanese domestic market counterpart. In titles preceeded by Forza Motorsport 3, both cars have lower weight ratings that are shared by each other.[2]

The Type-R is powered by a B18C5 codenamed 1.8 litre four-cylinder engine capable of redlining up to 9000 rpm although its real life counterpart is limited to 8400 rpm. The aluminum block engine is equipped with various modifications including a single-port intake manifold for less restrictive airflow and an oil cooler for better heat dissipation. It also makes use of Honda's DOHC VTEC variable valve timing system that increases performance at higher rpms without resorting to higher displacement. Power is rated as 195 hp at 8000 rpm, with torque being rated as 130 lb-ft at 7500 rpm.[3][4]

In comparison with its Japanese domestic market counterpart, the Acura Type-R has minimally less horsepower due to a higher compression ratio of the Honda.

Performance Edit

The Type-R has highly responsive steering and is surprisingly neutral in corners for a front-wheel drive car, with understeer appearing if pushed too hard. The front end feels planted most of the time, even more so than its successor, the 2002 Acura RSX Type-S. When accelerating through corners in second gear, the Type-R has a small chance of wheelspin. Braking is neutral and sufficient although braking from high speeds may be improvable.

The Type R has quick acceleration, with most of the power coming in above 5000 rpm and reaches about 153 mph (246 km/h) as top speed. It requires 6.2 seconds when launching from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) and 14.7 seconds for accelerating from 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h). The Type-R is best launched from around 4000 rpm, as anything higher will lead to excessive wheelspin off the line.

Trivia Edit

  • The Type-R's manufacturer colors consist of black and yellow, with white being available in newer Forza titles despite it being an option reserved for the 1997 and 1998 model years.[5]
  • The engine bay and trunk cannot be opened in Forzavista.
  • The Type-R has no aftermarket exterior modifications unlike most Honda cars.
