Limited Edition Civic Type R sells out

March 20, 2020

Honda UK has today announced that its entire allocation of Civic Type R Limited Edition has sold out before any customer has even seen the car.

With only 100 of these cars intended for the European market, just 20 are destined to officially land on UK shores making it set to be one of the rarest cars on the road in 2020.

Priced from just £39,995, the Civic Type R Limited Edition represents the purest expression of Type R, with less weight, improved dynamics and a strong driver focus.

Developed with improved track performance as its core focus, the Civic Type R Limited Edition will feature lightweight 20-inch BBS forged alloy wheels, unique ‘Sunlight Yellow’ paint, and a 47kg weight saving over the standard Type R.

Aimed at those who want the most extreme and driver-focused version of a Civic Type R, the Limited Edition is likely to become a mainstay at track days and driving events throughout Europe.

Inside, the Civic Type R Limited Edition features revised tactility and improved touch points, with a new Alcantara wrapped steering wheel and a counterweighted teardrop gear knob. Unlike some of its track focused rivals, the Civic Type R Limited Edition retains its back seats.

Pricing and further information on the 2020 model Civic Type R, Civic Type R GT and Civic Type R Sport Line will be announced in due course.

Phil Webb, Head of Cars at Honda UK, said: “As with the previous generation, we were expecting a huge demand for the Civic Type R Limited Edition. To have sold all 20 examples so quickly and before anyone has even seen, let alone driven the car, is fantastic and testament to the work done by the multiple-award winning Civic Type R.”
