In the 80s, to attract more sales in the US-of-A, Honda introduced their luxury brand, the Acura, to the public.

And it was the beginning of something truly magical. Their Integra model was focussed and simple and, unlike other Japanese manufacturers at the time, wasn't based on other vehicles from the parent company – basically, it wasn't a Civic with a body kit, it was an all-new vehicle.

The Integra was the first to introduce disk brakes on all four wheels, re-tuned suspension and the king of all things cool – pop-up headlights. Not only that, but it was also the first model to deliver that magical thing called the V-TEC engine.

Over the years it evolved from a luxury vehicle to become one of the true greats of the performance world and, arguably, delivering the best front-wheel-drive vehicle ever, 1997s Integra Type-R. It was tracked focussed, cutting weight and upping horse-power, they even welded it like a sports car, and it was a bombshell.

Over the next decade the Integra evolved ever more sporty, becoming the leader of USA's imports and, to this very day, the Integra is highly sought after around the globe for its handling and performance.
