Honda Performance Development (HPD) has unveiled the latest Acura Integra Type S DE5, a competition car designed to excel in the TCX class of the prestigious SRO TC America championship. This race car, although similar to the road model, has received significant enhancements, including a ventilated composite hood, an adjustable rear wing, and 18-inch forged wheels. Inside, it features a safety cage, an OMP racing seat, and a Motec C127 digital instrument panel, offering maximum safety.
Under the hood, the Acura Integra Type S DE5 is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers an impressive 360 horsepower and 460 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission with the assistance of an adjustable limited-slip differential from HPD and Cusco. The vehicle’s cooling system has also been improved, incorporating an HPD radiator, intercooler, and auxiliary oil coolers.
Furthermore, the Acura Integra Type S DE5 features a track-tuned suspension with adjustable front camber and caster plates, as well as double adjustable inverted dampers. In the rear, an adjustable stabilizer bar from HPD/RV6 and upgraded HPD/RV6 rear lower arms for race spring rates and positive toe adjustment have been installed.
HPD is already accepting pre-orders for this model with an initial deposit of $25,000. Additionally, the company has plans to seek approval to compete in the Sports Car Championship Canada with this exciting race car.
