Mazda Rx7 vs Honda Integra

The king of the drift !It’s a true Japanese sports car, the third generation of the RX-7, FD (with FD3S for Japan and JM1FD for the USA VIN), featured an updated body design. The 13B-REW was the first-ever mass-produced sequential twin-turbocharger system to export from Japan, boosting power to 255 PS (188 kW; 252 hp) in 1993 and finally 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp) by the time production ended in Japan in 2002.

With a relatively low curb weight of 2,700 lbs. for a rear-wheel drive compact coupe, the rx7 came with a blissful 1.3L Twin turbo 265 PS (195 kW; 261 hp) 13B-REW engine and a perfect body balance ! The FD RX-7 was Motor Trend's Import Car of the Year. When Playboy first reviewed the FD RX-7 in 1993, they tested it in the same issue as the [then] new Dodge Viper. In that issue, Playboy declared the RX-7 to be the better of the two cars. It went on to win Playboy's Car of the Year for 1993. The FD RX-7 also made Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1993 through 1995, for every year in which it was sold state-side. June 2007 Road & Track proclaimed "The ace in Mazda's sleeve is the RX-7, a car once touted as the purest, most exhilarating sports car in the world."[citation needed] After its introduction in 1991, it won the Automotive Researchers' and Journalists' Conference Car of the Year award in Japan !

 Performance : 0–60 mph: 5.5 sec. / Quarter mile : 14 sec. 

Before it moved under the Acura nameplate, the Integra was doing quite well for Honda. Throughout its life, the Integra was highly regarded for its handling and performance.
It also recieved a performance variant, like the Civic and Accord, in the shape of the Integra Type-R. The Type-R could make the sprint from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in 6.5 seconds, and reach a top overall speed of 148 miles per hour. It was very comparable to the Civic Type-R in terms of both performance and aesthetics. The basic Integra Type-R came outfitted with a 1.8-litre DOHC VTEC, although there were differences depending on which country the car was actually sold in.

Performance : 0–60 mph: 6.5 sec. / Quarter mile : 15.2 sec. 

In conclusion :
This time, again, we have to decide between the speed and fame.It's a tough choice because both cars have a lot fans. The Integra is quite faster than most of it's rivals, it has even become a benchmark for all 200bhp class vehicles. Unlike the sedan comparison, here the coupe screams PERFORMANCE and POWER this is why our winner for the battle of the coupes goes to the far more powerful rear wheel driven
