Making rounds on the internet is a video apparently showing police officers rush a mechanic’s shop near Atlanta, Georgia after hearing loud, rapid banging noises. Those noises, the police thought, came from a gun, but in reality, they were produced by a modified Japanese sports coupe.
The Acura Integra was for everyone that wanted a Honda Civic but didn’t actually want a Honda Civic.
Back in ‘95, I was not particularly concerned with Acura’s lineup. I didn’t care much about cars in general then, but if anything interested me it was going to be the muscle cars and European sports cars of the ‘60s and early ‘70s. How little I knew.
Right in the middle of all the GT-Rs, Porsches and Lamborghinis that showed up to the Heuberger Subaru Pikes Peak Air Strip Attack at Colorado Springs Airport earlier this month was a seemingly humble 1994 Acura Integra driven by one Myles Kerr. But this is no ordinary Integra.
Every car has a purpose (besides the obvious one, which is to make money for car companies). Some are made for families with multiple children. Some are for convertible fun on a good back road. But the purpose of the Acura Integra Type R was incredibly singular: the business of giant-slaying.
This car started out as a right-hand-drive, front-wheel-drive, JDM Honda Integra and its owner David Richmond figured he would do (what seemed like) a simple parts swap to make it rear-wheel drive. Simple is not how things worked out.
Nissan built a rival to the Acura Integra back in the 1990s, but nobody seems to remember it. Part of that, I’m sure, is because the car was never sold in the United States. Another part, I’m also sure, is because the car had absolutely no styling.
Like so many of us, Tyson Hugie dreamed of one day owning a very specific car collection. Classic 4x4s? European sports cars? Nah, man—early 90’s Acuras. It doesn’t sound too intrinsically exciting, but looking at this fleet. I think he might actually be on to something here.
The headline on this Car and Driver story is "A New Acura Integra? 'Just Wait,' We're Told," which makes you think there's really a new Integra in the Acura pipeline. But when you analyze the quotes from Acura chief designer Dave Marek, it's not that simple.
The Acura Integra, a car that went out of production in 2001, is still on America's top-ten most-stolen cars list.
Welcome to Used Car Face Off, where we find two similar or similarly priced used cars and ask you which one you would buy. Choose wisely!
The cool thing about luxury cars is that their features eventually trickle down to regular cars. The problem with luxury cars is that once their features have trickled down, they're not so special anymore.
You guys are the best at finding things, and we here at Jalopnik are forever indebted to all of our readers for helping out one of our own. We're not opposed to trying to return the favor, so why not help us help another fellow Jalop and find this Acura Integra.
Everyone knows Acura is about luxury. "But to enthusiasts," John Davis begins, "that brand also stands for speed." Well, not so much anymore. But back in 1997, it sure as hell did, as this clip from MotorWeek undoubtedly proves.
Japan's recent earthquake caused massive destruction in the northern city of Sendai, which happened to be the home of a racing team that ran one of Spoon Sports' DC5 Integra Type-Rs. That car was destroyed, but were its wheels looted?
We've seen more Civics, CRXs, and Integras than any other type of LeMons car, and we've learned two things: 1) They're well-suited to quick lap times on a race track, and 2) They blow head gaskets. They blow a lot of head gaskets. In fact, car-parts stores near LeMons events would do well to stock up on extra D15 and…
What a day of racing! No car held the lead for more than a couple of hours, and at one point the top eight cars were clustered within a two-lap span.
Remember the Black Metal V8olvo? Featuring an all-star cast of Spec Miata racers (a vast improvement over the not-so-great drivers- e.g., me- they had in the past) and great penalty-avoidance skills, they're leading the race!
