Honda has unveiled a special ‘Black Edition’ of the Civic Type R to commemorate the last of the current Civic Type R to come off the production line, this version is limited to the last 100 cars to come off the production line.

Aptly named, the Civic Type R Black Edition features a predominantly black interior with red accents and on the exterior, red rear wing end plates on the spoiler make this car stand out from the regular Type R.

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.

The Black Edition is powered by the same direct-injected turbocharged 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO petrol engine that you can find in the normal Type R, which delivers 300bhp at 6,500 rpm, and the peak torque is 400Nm at 2,500 rpm.

Price
The Black Edition will set you back £32,300, the same price as the range-topping Civic Type R GT.
