In 1995 Honda announced the release of the DC2 Integra Type-R that featured enhanced driving performance.
The Integra Type-R is powered by the B18C 1.8-litre DOHC VTEC engine, specifically developed for the Integra Type-R, and for high-revving fun and performance. Standard equipment includes a Helical LSD, performance rods, hard type suspension, a front lip spoiler, a rear spoiler, alloy wheels, a leather-wrapped MOMO steering wheel, RECARO seats, and a titanium gear knob.

In 1998 the JDM DC2 saw some minor changes. To enable higher torque at low and mid rpm levels, exhaust performance was improved by employing the equal length 4-in-1 style exhaust manifold. Suspension and brakes were also improved to maximise performance and handling. Other additions included newly designed 5-hole 16-inch alloy wheels, SRS airbag-compatible steering wheel designed by MOMO, and High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights.

In addition to the 3-door DC2, a 4-door version was available offering similar performance, but with a little more practicality. Known as the DB8, there are only a handful in the UK and they are a rare sight on the roads.
