Acura is giving enthusiasts a sneak peek at the highly-anticipated Integra Type S set to make its grand entrance next month. This high-performance variant of the Integra will pack a turbocharged 2.0-liter VTEC four-cylinder engine that churns out an impressive 320 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.
Comparatively, these specifications closely mirror those of the Honda Civic Type R, as the Integra Type S is derived from its Honda counterpart. With a slight power advantage of five horses over the Honda variant, it’s likely a move to maintain brand hierarchy, resulting in similar spec sheets. Like the Civic Type R, the Integra Type S will feature a responsive short-throw six-speed manual transmission directing power specifically to the front wheels via an innovative front differential.

Anticipate a continuation of this similarity throughout the Integra Type S. Nevertheless, akin to the base Integra, the Type S variant is anticipated to offer a more refined interior compared to the Civic Type R, featuring upscale materials and a slightly more premium design aesthetic.

Regarding exterior styling, Acura has unveiled just two enigmatic teaser images. While revealing little, the teaser hints at broader fender flares, likely to accommodate an increased wheel track, and a subtle carbon fiber lip spoiler. An accompanying teaser video provides a brief snippet of the Type S’s exhaust note, punctuated by distinctive burbles.

Though currently shrouded in secrecy, stay tuned as Acura plans to unveil the Integra Type S in its entirety next month at the highly-anticipated IndyCar Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach on April 10. Expect these performance machines to hit the streets potentially by summer.
