Honda Civic Type-R - Spinout

Jul 22, 2010

Civic responsibility?

Honda kills 4-door Civic Type-R, expands 3-door production. Tough news out of Honda HQ: the bodacious, bawdy and bad-ass four-door Civic Type-R will discontinue production at the end of August 2010. The Type-R moniker grabs the attention of the Honda faithful like Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunction. Type-R models are highly tuned to provide extraordinary driving dynamics and a big boost in status and style.

2018 Honda Civic
$18,940 Base Model (MSRP) 28/40 MPG Fuel Economy

First offered on the NSX in 1992, the Type-R designation was added to the Integra in 1995 and to the Civic in 1997. Previous Civic Type-Rs include EK9 and EP3 variants and the current crop of FD2- and FN2-based offerings. The FD2 is the four-door version of the Type-R sold in Japan while the FN2 is a three-door hatch built and sold in Europe as the Type-R Euro. As is often is the case, America is stuck on the outside looking in with run-of-the-mill Si models.

Perhaps out of remorse, or coming to its senses, Honda backed up the bad news with an announcement that it will begin sales of a limited-edition of the Civic Type-R Euro in Japan this fall. It will feature an updated exterior design for the 2010 model year.

The Robles have built some wicked machines, but what's important here isn't that a father and son each own a fast car; it's the environment from which they came.
