2017 Honda Civic Type-R: Goodbyes Are Hard
Honda will be saying goodbye to the Civic Type R by terminating its production at the Swindon plant in the UK soon. However, it will be releasing a limited edition model locally prior to that.
CarScoops states that the Honda Civic Type R Black Edition will be arriving with a starting price of £32,300 ($39,394), based on the current GT grade.
The automaker will only be releasing 100 units of this model for Europe’s biggest right-hand drive market, so you’ll have to be quick to nab one.
Phil Webb, Honda’s UK chief, said that, “There are only going to be 2,500 of the current Civic Type Rs on UK roads, so the car is going to be pretty special as it is – but with the addition of this special limited run of 100 Black Editions to the product lineup, owners will have a real collector’s piece on their hands.”
The model is finished with black with red accents for its exterior which translates into its interior, as well. Power output remains the same as the standard model with the 2.0-liter direct-injected turbocharged VTEC petrol mill worth 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft torque.
