Christmas came in early to the lucky 100 who were able to reserve the Honda Civic Type R, and adding further insult to injury to those who hesitated is the fact that the first batch of owners of the Honda Civic Type R will have a special and exclusive event in 2018.
Though as a consolation, the Honda Civic Type R will now be seen on display in a few dealers starting today.
The All-New Civic Type R is the first Type R model to be sold locally and for more than two decades, the Type R badge has denoted the highest performance version of the Civic. The Type R’s concept aims to deliver the most rewarding driving experience, both on the road and on the race track.
Packing a 2.0 liter VTEC Turbo engine that produces 310 hp and 400 Nm of torque, it is mated only to a 6-speed manual transmission with an automatic rev matching features, adaptive dampers, and a limited slip differential. For those who are able to do their heel and toe, the rev matching system can be turned off.
