Honda to produce limited-edition Civic Type-R Euro

The Honda Civic Type R Euro has proved a real hit in Japan and a solid seller in their market. It’s no surprise really, the UK-built hatchback packs 201 horsepower, agro styling and a suspension that has been perfected on the tarmac of Europe. It isn’t as fast as some of its predecessors, but that hasn’t stopped Japanese buyers from snapping them up. Honda says that since the car went on sale in November, the company has sold 1,850 units on its home turf.

Now, to celebrate, Honda is turning out a special edition version of the Civic Type R Euro three-door. Changes over the standard model aren’t expected to be too radical and it’s expected to be mainly a styling update. The bodywork is due a refresh, but any power increase seems unlikely. Hopefully if the Civic Type R Euro continues to be popular in the Japanese domestic market we will begin to see a few down here in NZ. Fingers crossed.
