In 1995 Honda introduced their first Type R to the Japanese domestic market
as a car that the common man could afford. The JDM Type R had the minor change long

A regional variant is known in North America as the Acura Integra Type R
(DC2). A Type-R variant of the North American RSX was not available. In the
rest of the world the RSX (DC5) is still called Integra Type-R. (This applies
to only certain production versions of the DC5, in as much as there are
differences in the brakes, suspension, motors and other parts of the DC5 Type R
versus the DC5 Type S.)

Equipped with a close ratio 5-speed manual transmission and a Helical LSD, the
DC2 Integra Type R had significantly improved performance and handling relative
to the base model GS-R or the SiR Integra.
