• Honda and Charlie Puth Create Special Edition Civic Type R

The special edition Civic Type R is part of this year’s Honda Civic Tour

Honda and pop singer Charlie Puth have collaborated to create a unique Civic Type R that will be showcased at this year’s Honda Civic Tour. The one-off was designed by the singer, who was also given the same task on a Rebel 300 motorcycle that is going to be raffled off as part of this year’s Civic Tour festivities. Those who end up joining the fun could win the Puth-designed Rebel 300 motorcycle or a Honda Civic of their choice.

This year, Charlie Puth takes center stage as the man in charge of designing the Civic Type R. The singer, songwriter, and producer didn’t waste any time at all with his creation, giving the hatchback a sort of dark mint green color in the upper half of its body and a more traditional black shade in the lower half. Put also added touches of red accents throughout the car, most notably on the lip spoilers and side sills of the Civic Type R. As it is in this treatment, the Civic Type R looks pretty cool. Just find a way to get over large “Charlie Puth” livery on the side panels, and you’ll be on your way to actually enjoy the pop star’s creation. At the very least, it’s a different interpretation from the one-off Civic Type R that was showcased at last year’s event. That one was designed by Puth’s contemporaries in the art, One Republic. It was dressed predominantly in matte black with red accents on the hood, side skirts, and rear spoiler.

In addition to the Civic Type R, Honda also gave Puth the opportunity to design a Honda Rebel 300 motorcycle. Not wasting the opportunity, the singer gave it a similar color treatment. And, for what it’s worth, the result actually looks better on the Rebel 300. That’s probably one of the reasons why Honda is offering the special edition bike as one of the prizes in the Honda Civic Tour giveaway to go with a Honda Civic of the winner’s choosing.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
