What is new though, are 20-inch BBS wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres, retuned damper settings to take into account the new components, and a revised steering calibration.
Honda says the Limited Edition was “developed with track performance as its core focus” and that he new Civic Type R “has been designed and engineered to be the most dynamic front-wheel-drive hatchback available”.
Limited in number, Honda is yet to reveal exactly how many Civic Type R Limited Editions will be made, but each will be finished in ‘Sunlight Yellow’ with a contrasting gloss black roof, wing mirrors and bonnet scoop, as well as a dark chrome model badge in the rear.
To save weight, sound deadening is removed from the roof, rear hatch, front bumper and dashboard, but keeps its rear seats. The exact weight saving is yet to be revealed.
