96 spec R JDM DC2

We all love a Jap import!

The Integra Type R began its Journey back in 1995, coming out in Japan domestic market first, then hitting EUDM and USDM shores soon after. It was built by Honda as a sports saloon that the common could afford, boosting near 200ps from its B18CR 1.8L DOHC Vtec engine JDM spec only.

It’s not uncommon to see A JDM import DC2 in the UK, but Dean Postlethwaite 96 Spec R is one of finest examples around, that stands out from the rest.

The reason why? I’ll let the pictures answer your questions.

I have not known Dean that long and have always admired his car on forums from afar. I finally met him at Hellaflush uk held at wembley arena back in Sept. With in the last month we have met at other shows and meets, Players 5.0, West London collective and South Mimms finale). I got the chance to take a few pics for him at Mimms after falling in love with it so much. 

The car was bought standard with spoon manifold and lowered on 60mm springs. The springs were soon swapped for Meister R super low fully adjustable coilvers, which is the gold standard for many Jap tuners that want to run low but have the comfort aswell. 

Dean, What do like about your car the most?

” Well just the fact that the car looks so sexy from all angles ”   

3 ½ years on the car has been fully spec’d up to his taste, the end result  amazing.
