Integra GS-R Sedan for Sale, Reminds Us That These Even Exist
Missing out on the pinnacle of Acura’s sport sedans would be a great shame, so please do every enthusiast a favor and buy this rare legend.
Nowadays, unless you have hundreds of thousands of dollars to shell out on a futuristic NSX, there isn’t much going on for the enthusiasts at the Acura brand. However, rewind 20 or so years and you’ll have in your hands the golden era of performance Acuras.
Let’s talk GS-R, the highest-performance trim level offered on the Integra sedan, featuring the stout and coveted B18C1 DOHC VTEC 4-cylinder making 170 HP and 128 ft/lbs of torque at a peak redline shy of 8,300 RPM. This motor featured in the GS-R is not just one of the best Honda motors, but probably one of the best engines made by any manufacturer, period. Mated to a 5-speed transmission, and situated in a chassis with double wishbone suspension, it remains one of the best driver’s cars around due to the pureness of the driving experience it delivers. This is why we lost it a little when we saw a 1994 Integra GS-R sedan for sale on the forum recently.
Here is why you should buy this car. Do a search for how many GS-R sedans you can find in your local area. Most likely, it will be none. Try a search for the car throughout the whole country, you’ll only find a couple of examples. This car is rare and we mean it. Now this car that is offered for sale isn’t perfect and honestly we didn’t expect it to be. Not many are. However, it is completely bone stock without so much as a modification as a child seat in the back.
We know that the owner has multiple years of service records from their post, letting us know that which parts have been replaced and at what mileage. Supposedly “over $21,000 worth of maintenance work” in receipts. If we were buying the car, we’d be happy to see all of them. The car does have some light dings and dents and the paint is fading a bit, but we still keep our opinion that a GS-R sedan in this condition is well worth the $5,000 asking price. Hopefully, one of you lucky Honda-tech members will think the same, because if we had this little sedan in our garages, we’d smile every time we opened that door.
