Integra Type R crashed hours after sale

An enthusiast buys an Integra Type R at auction, but just a few hours later the seller crashes with the car.

While with us the Integra type R was sold under the Honda badge, in other regions, it received the Acura badge, a label with a more exclusive image. But whatever the brand under which it was sold, The Integra Type R Coupe is still a formidable sensation machine today. It also retains a love rating with many enthusiasts. But some models are not always treated well.

A madeleine of Proust

It also appeared in the personal pantheon of buyers of this very fine copy dating from 1998. After having offered $ 51,000 (€ 42,770), they won the auction. When praised by the site, future owners indicated that the Integra Type R was their first high school car. They added that they had “Can’t wait to drive one again”.

Crashed before even trying it

Unfortunately, this beautiful reunion cannot take place. Within hours of closing the sale, they released a sad note. It indicated that the seller had left the road with the car, which severely damaged the car. This had the logical effect of making delivery impossible. Information confirmed by the sales site Bring A Trailer : “We confirmed with the seller that the car was damaged after the auction ended”. Fortunately, no one was injured in this accident.

Of course all selling costs have been reimbursed to buyers. They will therefore not be able to find the car of their youth right away.

190 hp high perched!

The Integra Type R was produced from 1998 to 2001. It benefited from a 4 cylinders of a 1.8 liter VTEC of 190 hp. A power that had to be sought from 7 900 tr / min. In France, only 430 copies were imported. It was possible to choose it in your favorite color as long as it was white!
