2002 Honda Integra Type R (DC5)
Sought after JDM spec hot-hatch with pokey K20 engine; interesting investment appeal
Dating from September 2002 this JDM spec Honda Integra Type-R is one cool cookie, and one that has seen continued popularity and demand and concomitant rise in value.
Under the bonnet of this DC5 Integra we find the famed K20 2.0 litre inline four-cylinder petrol engine featuring DOHC and V-Tec variable valve-timing rated at 217Bhp driving the front wheels through six-speed close-ratio manual transmission.
The JDM spec Type-R features an LSD, stiffer springs and shocks as well as HID head lights, ali pedals, Brembo four-pot brakes, 17inch twin spoke wheels and suede Recaro interior – much as we see here.
Finished in silver, the car has worn its 21 years with relative ease, bar a few marks and signs of cosmetic remediation as pictured – but then these cars tend to be enthusiast owned, and driven as they were intended.
Imported and registered in the UK in December 2012 the car has seen five former keepers to the current of 16 months and comes with the added benefit of a K-tuned exhaust system, genuine Type-R floor mats, JDM wind deflectors and original service book…in Japanese.
The car shows 93,017 miles/KM on the odometer, which looks to be a mix of both – its first MOT in December 2008 records 18,904 miles with this increasing over the years to that currently recorded.
The current MOT is valid until March 2023 and recorded no advisories, indicating this most sought after of hot hatches is ready to be enjoyed.
