Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition: Track-Tuned Performance
The power of the Turbocharged 2.0L VTEC™ In-Line 4-cylinder engine will send you screaming off the starting line. It pumps out 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. You’ll be able to listen to it growl thanks to the Triple Outlet Exhaust with Active Sound Control.
The combination of a rear wing spoiler and vortex generators give this Honda sports car aerodynamics that are made for the racetrack. It will help improve lap times and give you more stability and control when taking on corners at searing speeds.
A standard 3-Mode Drive System will help fine-tune your driving experience. You can have a little fun with Sport Mode or take it easy on Sunday with Comfort Mode. Once you hit the racetrack, however, you’ll want to engage +R. It will retune the suspension and adjust throttle response, so you can push your Honda Civic Type R to the limit.
Civic Type R Limited Edition: Driver-Centric Interior
Settle into the heavily bolstered, red-and-black sport seats and you will have all the support you need to carry out your most daring maneuvers. You’ll be able to get a grip on the Alcantara®-wrapped steering wheel. It comes with a flat bottom, so you’ll be able to use all 42.3 inches of front legroom to work the sport pedals.
