Americans: you’re getting a 300bhp+ manual Acura Integra Type S

Acura confirms that a ‘high-performance’ Integra Type S is in development

Published: 05 Dec 2022

Big news from across the pond: Acura has confirmed that a high-performance Integra Type S is in the works, and that it’ll join the brand’s lineup for the 2024 model year.

Acura has announced that the Type S will get a high-revving 2.0-litre turbocharged VTEC engine with ‘over 300 horsepower’. A good guess would be that it’ll get the same 324bhp engine as the new Honda Civic Type R. We also know that it’ll definitely get a six-speed manual gearbox and a limited slip diff. Result. 

Acura also tells us that the hot Integra will have ‘ultimate street performance’, and we can see that the styling will be sporty but slightly more restrained than the Type R.

Excited?
