Retro Inspiration for the all-new 2023 Acura Integra
ENEOS ambassador Dai Yoshihara recently partnered with Acura to help celebrate the return of the Integra to its vehicle lineup. He was tasked with showcasing the potential of the next-generation Integra by creating his ideal interpretation of the ultimate 2023 Integra.
No stranger to Hondas — Dai drives competitively for Evasive Motorsports and Spoon Sports USA on a regular basis — his motorsports roots are reflected in the project, which was brought to life with the help of Evasive. The resulting Turn 14 Distribution / Stoptech Integra is a nod to the classic era of JGTC (Japanese Grand Touring Championship), the car dressed in a ’90s-inspired livery, ultra-low stance utilizing KW suspension, Stoptech brake package and BBS wheels. Inside, a full rollcage and Sparco racing seats provide additional safety for racing activities.
The Integra debuted publicly at the Pit+Paddock “Drive In” at the Petersen Museum in October before appearing at the 2022 SEMA Show. There are also more appearances scheduled on behalf of Acura, including the Grand Prix of Long Beach in April.
“I always liked the Integras from the ’80s and ’90s, so it’s an honor to build a brand new 2023 Integra for Acura,” Dai said. “I took the sporty theme from the DB8 Integra and fused its styling into my build.”
