The Acura RSX Type-S is a sports coupe manufactured by Acura for the North American market. It was initially purchasable with a 200-bhp 2.0L K20A2 inline-four engine.

In 2005, the car received a new K20Z1 engine with a slightly higher power output, as well as a facelift that notably foregoes the iconic teardrop styling in the headlamps and taillights.
