The third-generation did make it to the US as the Acura RSX, but the high-performance Type R model didn't. Sadly, the Type R was only sold in Japan.
The venerable B-Series four-cylinder was replaced with a new 2.0-liter K-Series engine, making 217 horsepower.
On the transmission front, the five-speed manual was replaced with a six-speed unit.
Other performance goodies included a limited-slip differential and front Brembo brakes.
Compared to other models in the lineup, the Type R featured additional body reinforcements and a firmer suspension setup.
Special Type R exterior touches include a front lip spoiler, side sills and tall rear wing.
Besides Championship White, this generation of the Integra Type R also came in blue.

Dressing the interior again were Recaro sport seats and a Momo steering wheel.
To save weight, the Type R could be had without a sound system. Click through for lots more pics from Honda.
