The Honda Civic Type R is finally coming to the United States this year. Just the car we will get is a bit different from the Civic Type R which is less than two years ago launched otherwhere. That Civic Type R is made like the previous-generation Civic Hatchback that was sold out of the U.S.. Honda has officially confirmed the end of production.
To celebrate the vehicle’s short run, the last 100 examples for building were changed into a special edition model that is called the Civic Type R Black Edition. What’s unique to the car are red end plates on the rear wing and the inside that’s mostly black and accentuated with a few extra red elements. (Red is characteristiccolor of Honda’s Type R models.)
