Honda has announced a Black Edition of the Civic Type R commemorating the end of production for the current Civic.
This run-out version is limited to the last 100 cars to come off the production line and Honda is expecting the version to become a collector’s item as only 2,500 examples of the current model are on UK roads.
Already on their way to dealers across the country, the Civic Type R Black Edition features a predominantly black interior with red accents, while the exterior is differentiated from the standard version by red rear wing end plates on the spoiler.
With production of the current Civic Type R at Honda’s factory in Swindon now finished, the factory is gearing up for the next generation Civic, which goes on sale in March, and the new Civic Type R version, which is expected to hit retail forecourts in the latter half of this year.
Pricing is based on the existing GT model at £32,300.
