Acura Monday unveiled the prototype for its 2002 Integra replacement.
The prototype, called the RS-X sports coupe, closely resembles the car that will replace the Integra.
The name Integra will be retired, but Colliver wouldn't say if the RS-X name will be used on the production model.
Colliver said the company expects to sell 30,000 of the new cars during the first 12 months, and about 15,000 in 2001. The company sold 25,975 Integras in 2000.
"As you can see, the lines are crisp, clean and aggressive," Colliver said of the electric blue car on display. "Like the 2002 Integra replacement, this RX-S prototype takes everything that is great about the current Integra model and elevates it to a whole new level."
The RS-X has a 2.0-liter, 16-valve double-overhead-camshaft engine with variable valve timing that produces approximately 200 hp.
The RS-X's front fascia has large headlights and a beveled chin spoiler.
Its interior has perforated black leather trim and deeply contoured seats. It also features a large greenhouse.
Colliver wouldn't say how much the Integra replacement will cost.
