Now that Honda has decided to discontinue the UK-built Civic Type R after not meeting the Euro V emissions regulations, the Japanese-based auto company is bringing a select number of these sporty hot hatches back to the motherland as a limited edition release.
The 2011MY Civic Type R Euro will be launched in Japan in limited quantity – only 1,500 units will be made available – putting it up for grabs to the first 1,500 customers who would want to drive home with one.
There’s not a whole lot of difference between the current-generation Civic Type R Euro from its predecessor – the 2.0-liter VTEC engine remains the same – with the only new components being a new color for the three-door hot hatch – Crystal Black Pearl – in addition to a number of trim updates and a redesigned fuel cap.
The 2011MY Civic Type R Euro will be sold in its home country at a price tag of 3 million Yen, which, if you convert based on current exchange rates, is around $37,000. Too bad we won’t be able to get a piece of this Civic hatch. Would’ve been a nice addition to our garage.
