Acura Integra Type R: Any Clean Ones Left and How Does it Compare to the S2000?

I often admire the simplicity, reliability, and stunning performance of the Honda S2000. My wife and I have owned and loved two Honda Preludes, so I guess I’m a bit predisposed to the S2000 without having even driven one; I know it won’t disappoint.

Scanning classifieds returns many very clean, low mileage, and under $20k examples. Like these:

2000 Honda S2000 on eBay (PA, 22k miles, $16.5k buy-it-now):

2001 Honda S2000 (TX, 37k miles, $15780 buy-it-now):
2001 Honda S2000 Yellow For Sale

And then on the way out of work the other day, I spotted an Acura Integra and realized I had nearly forgotten about the fantastic Acura Integra Type R. And I realized I had forgotten about them because I had pretty much dismissed them — I figured there weren’t any unmolested examples left. And by unmolested, I mean not totally beat on and/or heavily modified.

But I could be wrong. Within only 20 minutes, I spotted this all stock original 1997 Integra Type R on Honda-Tech (55k miles, $16.9k):

The Type R is loaded with cool features, which I’d list, but the Wikipedia article on the Integra Type R is very complete.

So what do you think? As the S2000 and ITR are sharing the $15-20k price-point for clean examples, which would you pick? Which is the better driver’s car? Leave a comment!
