Honda Civic Type R Black Edition Marks End of Current Generation

Limited to 100 units

Honda has finished production on the current-generation Civic Type R, and the last 100 copies to come off the line are special-edition models. The Honda Civic Type R Black Edition is headed to dealerships in the U.K. looking particularly sharp.

Like its name suggests, the Black Edition Type R features a black paint job along with prominent red accents on the front fascia and wheels. It also gets unique red rear wing end plates on the spoiler. The car's red-and-black theme is particularly striking inside the cabin.

U.K. customers looking for the Black Edition should act soon because Honda expects to sell out of the models quickly. Priced at 32,300, or roughly $39,300 at today's rates, the Black Edition costs the same as the top-trim Civic Type R GT sold in the U.K.

The outgoing Civic Type R boasts a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The next-gen model coming to our shores is also likely to get a 2.0-liter turbo engine. In September, Honda debuted a prototype that looks quite promising.

A final version is set to be unveiled later this year. When it goes into production, the Type R will once again be built at Honda's manufacturing plant in Swindon, U.K., where the 10th-generation Civic hatchback is built.
