The ultimate street-legal Honda Civic Type R is coming to America! Later this year, six-hundred 2021 Limited Edition Civic Type R models will arrive on US shores, all of them shining in a brilliant new Phoenix Yellow paint designed specifically for the Civic Type R.
Each Limited Edition Civic Type R will be adorned with its own individually numbered serial plate that’ll denote the country it was originally sold in. But again, only 600 will be available for purchase in the US. So today, let’s take a look at the 2021 Limited Edition Civic Type R and stoke our jealousies.
The 2021 Limited Edition Civic Type R is 46 pounds lighter thanks to several modifications from stock that not only reduce weight but enhance its race car feel. Features include:
- Lightweight, forged aluminum wheels from acclaimed manufacturer BBS (18 lb. total unsprung weight reduction)
- Further weight reduction of approximately 28 pounds accomplished via reduced sound deadening materials and removal of features such as the rear wiper, tonneau cover, and rear heater ducts
- Specially tuned dampers
- Recalibrated steering for maximum control and feedback
Is this the car you’ve been dreaming of? Most likely. All 2021 Limited Edition Civic Type R models will shine like stars in a new model-exclusive color, Phoenix Yellow. Plus, they’ll be trimmed with a contrasting gloss black roof, outside mirror caps, and hood intake vent. To complete the look, the rear hatch includes a dark chrome Civic badge.
Although speed and style may reign supreme, the 2021 Limited Edition Civic Type R is still a Honda and that means it’s plenty safe. Standard equipment on the 2021 Limited Edition Civic Type R is Honda Sensing, Honda’s advanced suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. Honda Sensing includes:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) with Forward Collision Warning
- Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control
Under the Hood
This next wave of legendary street-legal performance gets its power from the race-bred 2.0-liter direct-injected and turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with VTEC™ valvetrain. It’s paired to a close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential, and puts out a peak 306-horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Plus, it features three standard driving modes: Comfort, Sport, and +R.
Simply put, if this Honda Civic doesn’t turn your head with its striking good looks, it’ll certain turn your head when you feel it go racing by.
