Immaculate Honda Integra Type R found behind sealed wall

Everyone knows that false walls and secret room are cool, but when that secret room contains a rare piece of Japanese history, it's infinitely cooler.
Behind this awkwardly constructed plywood wall sits a Type R Integra that hasn't seen the light of day in a very long time, and has just 130,000KM on the clock — a reasonably low number for a car of this age.
For those that aren't familiar with Honda heritage, this is one of the most sought after vehicles in the Type R line-up ever produced, and because this one was sold in the Canadian market, it is badged as an Acura.
Featuring more power and less weight than the standard Integra, the Type R was a purpose-built race car designed for the street and track use.
When building the Type R Integra, everything that didn't make the car go faster or lighter was thrown away, resulting in a car without a stereo system, sound deadening, and heat panels.
This resulted in a car that wasn't too comfortable to drive long distances, but could put down a decent time at your local track.
Only 250 Integras came out of the factory with these special Recaro seats, an aspect of the car that the owner has been offered over $8K NZD for already.
This example is currently for sale in Quebec, Canada with a $44,000 NZD price tag on eBay.
While $40K is a lot to spend on an early 2000s Honda, the price of these cars has been creeping up over the past few years, and after that green Honda NSX was listed for over $100K, this one seems like a bargain.
