Close Up: Type One Type-R

.

Next up in my Close-Up series is the bright orange Integra Type-R built by Type-One.  Near flawless paint aside, you can recognize this as a possible race car because of the sticky Advans that are wrapped around the track-worn SSR Type-C’s.  A closer look reveals most of the interior still in-tact; pretty common in Japan because of the abundance of open track events at places like Suzuka, Fuji, Twin-Ring, and Ebisu.  Click past the break for more pics.

A shot from the back gives a better look at the nice paint.  Mugen tailgate fasteners hold the hatch down.

It was up on the lift during my visit with the hood down, so I wasn’t able to get any engine shots.  I was really impressed with the paint!  So well taken care of for a track car.

The labels on the cluster say that the A trip odometer is for racing, and the B is for engine tuning.
