  1. Honda hopes to bring the much-loved Integra Type-R sports coupe back to the UK next year. The original Integra Type-R was discontinued in 2001, but the new model - based on the current Civic - was not brought to our shores for fears that sales of the Civic Type-R would be affected. However, 6000 Civic hot hatches sold last year, 4500 more than the projected sales figure, and as a result, Honda feels that the Type-R brand could now sustain more than one model.

    The Integra Type-R develops 220bhp from a 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. Recaro racing seats and polished aluminium touches deck out the cabin. A Honda UK spokesperson told us that to make a valid business case, the company would need to sell around 2000 Integra Type-Rs a year to ensure the parts are available and that dealers' are trained to service the cars. Honda hopes to make a decision early next year and the cars could arrive here by next summer. Estimated prices for the Integra would be around £16,000.
