Small affordable sports cars with a manual transmission are becoming rarer than bigfoot sightings. Long before Acura rebranded the Integra as a four-door hatchback, it sold the RSX and this 2006 Type-S model has low mileage, is completely unmodified, and up for sale.
We’ve talked in the past about how the final production two-door Integra and the RSX which replaced it were fun, quick cars. These Type-S models were faster still and only sold with a six-speed manual transmission. It also had a stiffer suspension and a revised K20Z1 inline-four engine that was factory rated at 201 hp (149 kW) and 140 lb-ft (189 Nm) of torque.
With just 41,700 miles on the odometer, we bet this one feels as good as new. Over the course of those miles, it’s been with just two owners and has no history of accidents or other issues on its CarFax report. Externally, the RSX is finished in Premium White Pearl which matches nicely with its Titanium interior color and leather upholstery.

This particular RSX also has a few factory options that make it even more desirable. They include a seven-speaker Bose sound system, a six-disc CD changer (remember those?), 17-inch alloy wheels, sport seats, and automatic climate control. Moreover, unlike other examples out there, this car is devoid of any modifications.
These little sports cars were, as mentioned above, relatively inexpensive, and so most people that bought them up tweaked and tuned them to kingdom come. Even today, decades after the two-door Integra and RSX left production, some tuning shops are going to painstaking lengths to build them into monsters.
At the time of this writing, this super clean RSX Type-S has a high bid of just $19,444 with about a day left in the auction. If you’re interested, head on over to Cars & Bids where this car is listed. Whoever ends up buying it can be confident that it’ll beat any brand-new Integra at the drag strip – no modifications necessary.
