Acura will celebrate its performance heritage and the highly anticipated return of the iconic Integra nameplate to the Acura lineup with the public debut of the Acura Integra Prototype at the RADwood SoCal car show, Saturday, Nov. 20 in Torrance, Calif.
Following its Nov. 11 global debut, the Integra Prototype will make its first public appearance at RADwood SoCal, alongside ten vintage Integra models including championship-winning racecars and the actual Integra GS-R from The Fast and The Furious. RADwood SoCal is presented by Acura and will be hosted at the brand's North American headquarters.
Acura has a long partnership with RADwood, automotive lifestyle events centered around the cars, trucks, bikes and the culture of the 1980s and 1990s. In 2018, Acura displayed several heritage models, including a low-mileage 2001 Phoenix Yellow Integra Type R and never before seen quarter scale model of the third-generation Integra. Acura also was the first automotive brand to create a project car specifically for RADwood, the "Super Handling SLX", built by Acura engineers in Ohio, for display in 2019.
More information on the RADwood show, including event tickets, is available at Radwood.com.
