Acura Integra Type S to Make Camouflaged Appearance at Rolex 24 at Daytona
A prototype of Acura’s upcoming Integra Type S will make its North American debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona this weekend.
The Type S prototype will still be camouflaged in a special wrap as it leads the charge at the start of the race. The Type S will also be parked in Daytona’s paddocks throughout the race weekend.
We’ve reported on the Type S before; but as a refresher, this uprated model of the Integra sport sedan will use a high-revving 2.0-liter VTEC engine, turbocharged to a stout 300 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential will come standard. We expect the Type S to, in many ways, mirror the experience we had in the 2023 Honda Civic Type R— which is, in no way, a bad thing.
For our race fans, Acura will be returning to Rolex 24 with high spirits after victories in 2022. Four cars will take the field, including the debut on the Acura ARX-06 Prototypes; electrified and competing in the new GTP category. That will be #60, driven by Meyer Shank Racing, and #10, driven by Wayne Taylor Racing with Andretti Autosport. The other cars are both Acura NSX GT3 Evo22s, competing in the GTD class with #66, Gradient Racing, and #93, Racers Edge Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing.
The 2024 Acura Integra Type S is slated for an official launch this summer, and we suspect more details will arrive before then. Stay tuned to MotorWeek for all the latest!
