Season 2 Of ‘Chiaki’s Journey’ Features 2024 Acura Integra Type S Anime Hero Car 2023

Anime and Japanese automobile culture frequently go hand in hand, as we have seen in the past with programs like Initial D. However, as the times evolve, these car-centric events must incorporate the most recent cultural representations. Acura’s short-form anime series “Chiaki’s Journey” will feature the all-new Integra Type S as the main attraction.

The automaker’s original anime began in 2022 as an entertaining way to promote their growing Type S lineup, and the second season premieres today at the Acura Long Beach Grand Prix. As a tribute to the Integra’s racing heritage, the season will feature vehicles such as the 1990s RealTime Racing Integra Type R, with the new Integra Type S making its debut in the final episode of the season as a Pikes Peak race car.

Acura’s second anime series will star the new Integra Type S.

Acura will send a race-ready Integra Type S to this year’s Pikes Peak hillclimb, which will be held on June 25. With any luck, the car will have distinctive decals, gold rims, and aggressive hill-climb aero to resemble the one from the anime series. In addition, this weekend at Long Beach, they will have a full-scale replica of Uncle Noboru’s garage with the Integra Type S on exhibit, as well as anime-style covers for the Acuras that will be pacing and competing in the IMSA race.

With 320 horsepower (324 PS / 239 kW) and 310 lb-ft (420 Nm) of available torque, the Integra Type S is a bona fide hot compact, surpassing its Civic Type R companion by 5 hp (5 PS / 4 kW). In typical Integra fashion, the 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine transmits all of its power to the front axles and is only available with a six-speed manual transmission to satisfy enthusiasts. In addition to four-piston Brembo brakes and adaptive absorbers, the vehicle manages corners as well as it appears.
