Bring a Trailer Bargain of the Week: 1996 Honda Integra Type R DB8

While the jury’s still out on the 2023 Integra, the original Acura Integra Type R is a certified performance icon. And as per usual, that means the import classic is priced out of reach for most enthusiasts. However, there are ways of getting an ITR experience without going broke. Getting an RSX Type S is one way. And another is to get something like this week’s Bring a Trailer bargain: a DB8 Honda Integra Type R sedan.

The DB8 Honda Integra Type R is the JDM ITR sedan we never got

US customers only briefly enjoyed the Acura Integra Type R’s presence in dealers. While the original Integra launched here in 1986, the Type R didn’t arrive until 1997. And after a one-year hiatus in 1999, it returned in 2000 only to leave after 2001.
