i-VTEC engine, producing in excess of 220BHP. This engine is the best of the V-Tec range. It is very refined and easy to drive low down in the rev range, unlike some of the earlier V-Tecs due to the improved low down torque, characteristic of this engine. Then once past 6000 RPM this engine changes note as the V-Tec comes 'on cam', accompanied by a kick in the back acceleration uncommon to naturally aspirated cars. Fitted with the latest i-VTec 220 bhp 2.0 engine from Honda, these are superb award winning engines. Honda being the pioneer of variable valve timing technology - knows how to make an N/A sports engine to entertail yet still meet all the modern emissions standards. This engine really is superb in every respect providing ease of driveability, good fuel economy and yet unbelievable power from the 2.0 DOHC when required, all the way to the 8,400RPM red line.

Integra Type R's have always been popular performance cars in Japan holding their prices well and the DC5 continues to be a popular choice with enthusiasts in the East for good reason. With Honda engineering, it's a very reliable package indeed, comprising a delightful to use 6 speed gearbox and handling that puts other so called hot hatches into the weeds! These Integras corner as if they're on proverbial rails!
Now with increasing fuel prices in the UK, it makes more sense than ever to have a V-Tec. Economy when you want it, then performance and handling when the open road beckons. To us, this is also one of the most beautiful coupes now made. Understated, subtle and purposeful in apperance. DC5's are destined to grow in popularity in the UK. The real benefits of V-Tec are yet to be fully realised..
With only a handful in the UK - an extremely exclusive and beautiful Sports Car. Blue metallic is also the rarest and considered by most as the most beautiful colour for these also.
Including all OTR costs, E-SVA test, registration, road tax (6 month's) and full valetting, OTR price: £15,740
