Honda JDM Civic Type R

The 2007 Honda JDM Civic Type R was engineered to give the driver the feeling that he or she is one with the car, providing outstanding performance in all driving conditions, including on circuits. It went on sale throughout Japan in March 2007 and it is not going to be released in other markets. A specially tuned 2.0-liter normally aspirated engine paired to a six-speed manual transmission, will power this sports edition of the Civic. Its ability to ensure the ultimate level of performance is the result of the more rigid body shell, the specially tuned suspension, 18-inch tires and large 17-inch front disc brakes for improved fade resistance. The suspension features revised damping and spring rates, as well as thicker stabilizer bars which lead to an improved vehicle stability. 15 years of technological progress together with the latest expression of Honda's challenging spirit, essentially contributed to this latest all-new Civic Type R. Furthermore, the body boasts a crash safety performance that is a leader in the world, as it successfully withstands a 50 km/h rear collision, a 55 km/h side collision, a 64 km/h front offset collision and a 55 km/h full-frontal collision. 3-point, load-limiting ELR seatbelts featuring E-pretensioners, were added to the front seats. Standard driver/front passenger i-SRS airbags further protect the front-seat occupants.
