Honda is all set to end the production of its current generation performance hatch the Civic Type R and to commemorate it, the Japanese car maker has launched the final 100 units with a black edition. The car is based on the Type R GT, but with more power.
The Japanese car manufacturer produces the Civic Type R car at its manufacturing facility in Swindon, United Kingdom. Once Honda rolls out the last 100 units of the Civic Type R Black Edition, the company will update the plant to manufacture the new generation of Type R which is based on the Honda Civic X.
The limited edition Civic Type R get a direct-injected turbocharged 2.0-litre VTEC Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine producing 306bhp and 400Nm of peak torque.
Just like the name suggests, the Civic Type R Black Edition features a black paint job along with prominent red accents on the front fascia and wheels. The car's red and black theme is particularly spectacular inside the cabin.
The next-generation Honda Civic will go on sale in March 2017, while the more performance oriented Type R is expected to be introduced in September 2017.
Honda UK boss Phil Webb said that the Civic Type R Black Edition is going to be pretty special as it is with the special limited run of 100 units to the product line-up, owners will have a real collector's piece on their hands.
The 10th generation Honda Civic is expected to be unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show to be held in March.
