Performance FWD fantasies almost always start with Honda's Type R line and the late 90s/early 2000 models, like the DC2 and EK9 pictured here, will forever remain at the forefront of Honda fans worldwide. The lightweight, balanced chassis and vast aftermarket for both cars, even in non-R form, is enough to keep you busy, but toss in the tight handling chassis and high-revving, abuse-loving powerplants and things just get that much better.
Take a look below at details on the two cars being compared and visit our Instagram @superstreet page to let us know which "R" outshines the other!
As if owning a Phoenix Yellow DC2 Type R isn't enough, Shyam Sookram outfitted his '01 model with authentic Mugen goods inside and out. The brand's high dollar aero kit is joined by Ganador mirrors and bronze TE37. A B18C is still on duty but this version's been bulked up with a built bottom end and ported/polished head.
The authentic parts list never seems to end and you can get the complete rundown of specs and complete photo set here.
Adam Elghriany caught wind of a friend selling this EK9 Type R and he wasted no time in making the dream transaction a reality. Wanting a cohesive, timeless look, Adam leaned on Spoon Sports and grabbed everything he could from the motorsports-inspired parts producer.
From the lightweight wheels and monoblock calipers, right down to the 1st gen. steering wheel, he spared no expense in creating an EK that Spoon itself would be proud of.
