Also on the old one there's 2 door and 4 door (or is it 3 and 5?).
I've had a thrash on a circuit in one and great fun car on par with the old CTR but just a tad heavier.

just a tad heavier".

The old Integra DC2 Type-R is probably the best FWD car ever made, in fact it very recently won that very award in evo magazine if my memory serves. The handling is sublime, the Vtec engine has never, ever had a better home. The only negative (and this is tiny) is that the car is not really a commuter transport. It is a very focused lightwieght drivers car right down the carefully mixed paint formula. The only similarity with the Civic is that they both wear Honda badges. Nothing in the driving experience is the same. It's pretty loud inside due to the virtual lack of any soundproofing and it is geared pretty low so the engine will be reving at motorway speed.
Interestingly from those specs it would appear that the DC2 is the slowest of all 3 cars. couldn't be further from the truth. In fact the order I have posted the specs is in the order of Merit, with the DC2 rightly on top. For me styling wise the DC5 just pips it, and on the road it is almost as good as a DC2, but both are rated about the old Type-R (which as a drivers car pips even the newest Type-R according to alot of independant reviews... funny how things seem to move backwards
Although a 4door was made it is kinda like seeing a Ferrari you love then buying one with a tow bar and trailer on it. Why add extra wieght to a car built to be light?
