The Honda Saitama plant is where all Preludes used to be built. Now with Prelude production apparently ceased, the new Interga/RSX will be built there instead...

Here's a link to the Japan Honda site officially announcing the new Integra...
http://www.honda.co.jp/news/2001/integra-4010413b.html

Here's that same page in a Japanese to Engrish translator:
http://www.excite.co.jp/world/url/?wb_url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.honda.co.jp%2Fnews%2F2001%2Fintegra-4010413b.html&submit=%83E%83F%83u%83y%81%5B%83W%96%7C%96%F3&wb_lp=JAEN&wb_dis=2&wb_co =excitejapan

It looks like if the Prelude is to return to Honda's line up at some future point, it will have to find a new home to be built in...

That new JDM Integra Type R looks pretty sweet IMHO, though!
220hp 2.0l, Recaro front seats, Momo steering wheel, and Brembo brakes...

I told you it was Japanese to Engrish...
Actually I was surprised at how good the translation is for a free web filter. At least you can read it and get the idea, even though it's far from grammatically correct...

Since I wasn't able to get the translation, it looks sweet.

When is this new Type-R supposed to be here in US?
2.0L with 220hp and still front wheel drive not RWD with the powerplant from S2000?

The standard equipment of exclusive SUPOIRA, the front brake system made from brembo, the front bucket seat made from RECARO, the MOMO leather winding byway steering wheel, etc. is carried out, and TYPE-R serves as the model which can enjoy a more sporty run. Sale is planning the beginning of July, 2001.

Hmmm, if the Recaro, Brembo, Momo components and so on carry over, I don't know if I would keep my car any longer...and then there's the Nissan Z coming out soon too!

Those pictures look ALOT better than the earlier auto show pics.

Ummm... I just noticed something else about that page...

Interga Type R with A/C = 1180kg = only 2600lbs!!! I had no idea that the new Integra/RSX would be that light! Just looking at pictures, I was thinking it would weigh at least 2800lbs...

2600lbs. + 217hp + close ratio 6spd = fookin' fast!!

For reference, just think about this - It will have about the same power/weight ratio as an LS1 Z28 Camaro!! On top of that, I have a feeling that it will handle slightly better than a Camaro too...

for some reason, I think america will get the short end of the stick again, i.e. no recaros, stock steering wheel, etc....

I'm still seeing and hearing rumors that there may be a Sports Coupe replacement for the Prelude. It may not be called the Prelude, but it would be targeting the same buyers.

Most of you already have heard this also, its based on the S2000 platform and it will have RWD.

We can only hope its true.


From the rumors its said to have a 2.2 liter version of the S2000's motor, just bigger. Same internal set up, just punched out .2 liter.

Nice looking, I like the lights, though I will say that the front looks similar to the Chrysler 300M
