The Honda INTEGRA TYPE R Touring Car is a Race car produced by Honda. This fictional race car based on the DC5 Honda Integra first appeared in Gran Turismo Concept and has appeared in every main game since, with the exception of Gran Turismo Sport.
"The 4th generation Integra tuned to N1 specifications by Gran Turismo."
At the April 2001 New York Auto Show, the 4th generation Integra was announced. This touring car version is a homologation model based on this.
The biggest characteristic of this car is that except for the engine tuning, it nearly conforms to N1 racing regulations. The N1 spec Integra Type R had already been successful in Japanese endurance races like the Super Taikyu series, having attained glorious victories such as the 1-2 class finish in the Tokachi 24 hour endurance race in 2001.
Speaking of the N1-spec version, it is worth noting that Gran Turismo beat reality to the punch again. The N1 spec Integra first appeared in the 'Concept 2001 Tokyo' instalment of the game in October 2001. In game development of an N1 spec version began right after the NY show, but the real N1 spec version had not even been announced at that point. In other words, reality had to play catchup with the Gran Turismo team's fantasy model in this case.
The N1 spec version is 172.6 inches long and 67.9 inches wide, exactly the same as the normal version. All Integras grew in width with the 4th-generation, finally exceeding 66.9 inches.
The engine has undergone a high-level natural-aspiration tuning, making it ready for even hardcore races. It uses the same K20A 2L DOHC inline-4 i-VTEC engine used in the Civic, but with the increased compression ratio and higher redline, it now produces around 296 BHP.
Except for the instrument panel, the interior was completely gutted to save weight, dropping kerb weight to about 1 tonne, and a rollcage and bucket seats were added. This is a front wheel drive racing machine that Japan can most certainly show off with pride.
The player can unlock this car by getting the gold medal in the third Course License test, held at Swiss Alps.
