The Acura Integra returned to the automaker’s ranks earlier this year. The company has tapped three tuners to design their sports sedan, with the cars making their public debut over the weekend. However, Acura will also showcase the car at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The tuners are Daijiro “Dai” Yoshihara, Sara Choi, and Coco Zurita.
The Integra Yoshihara, built by Evasive Motorsports, stands out with its Voltex fender flares, large rear wing and body kit. This sedan uses 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Yokohama A005 racing tires and received an upgrade for the front brakes.
The interior reflects Yoshihara’s racing experience, featuring a six-point roll cage, Kevlar racing seat, six-point harness, race dashboard and adjustable short shifter. Performance improvements include a new air filter, Spoon Sports exhaust, and CSF front intercooler and charger pipe.
The Integra Sara Choi is a racing car for the road. The white sedan, wrapped finish, 19-inch Advan RSDF alloy wheels are sporting white, which is the start of the car’s visual upgrade. The car, made by Tony Star Performance, sports a custom body kit that gives the Integra new front and rear bumpers, large wings, fender flares and side sills. The powertrain receives a GReddy Performance intercooler, a GReddy oil cooler and a Sports Touring cat-back exhaust system.
The Integra Coco Zarita takes a more threatening look with the 3M “Gotham Grey” wrap. Carbon mirrors add to its dark aesthetic, as do 18-inch Kensei KNP black wheels. Chassis upgrades include a top front strut bar and an RSR Sport-I coilover.
Wilwood’s six-piston front brakes provide stopping power, with the car receiving a minor powertrain upgrade that includes a new exhaust, cold air intake and intercooler. Inside, the Acura features Momo seats, a six-point harness, and a Momo racing steering wheel.
The Acura Integra debuted with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It produces 200 horsepower (149 kilowatts) and 192-pound-feet (260 Newton-meters) of torque. The A-Spec package features a six-speed manual with rev-matching and a limited-slip differential. The Integra 2023 has a starting price of $31,895 but can go over $45,000 with plans and options.
