In a couple of days, someone is set to become the new owner of a barely driven 1997 Honda Integra Type R. Or, as it’s known in the country in which it’s for sale, an Acura Integra Type R.

The DC2-generation Type R has travelled only 9959km, which suggests its one owner either isn’t much a fan of its widely praised driving ability, or they foresaw its status as a future classic.

Either way, someone’s willing to put down more than USD$70,000 (Its current bid equates to about AUD$106,000!) in a BringATrailer auction that’s winding down this week.

As just “one of 320 US-market examples built for the model year,” it’s set to break what auction house Barrett-Jackson called a new record in 2018, when it sold a 1200-mile example for USD$63,800. That’s 1930km and roughly AUD$94,500 to us.

According to the BaT listing, this Integra in white (the only colour available to the US) is sporting “a new timing belt, tensioner, and water pump,” with the car “offered for sale with its original window sticker, maintenance records, factory manuals, period literature, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Missouri title in the seller’s name.”

Of course, time catches up with most cars eventually, and this one isn’t perfect. The listing says the “seller notes scratches on the rear bumper.” The front, however, seems to be protected most of the time by a black wrap-around cover.

With the auction due to end in two days from time of publication, chances are bids for this Type R will continue to roll in.
