Honda Civic Type R Sport Line deletes the ridiculous rear spoiler and red seats

The Honda Civic Type R (FK8) is the most accomplished and talented CTR ever made, with numerous circuit lap records under its belt. There’s no denying its credentials as a worthy track weapon but more importantly, it’s also the most forgiving CTR ever made. It’s the duality of the FK8 that captured the hearts of those who are fortunate enough to get behind the wheel of one. However, we know of people who stopped short at putting their money down on one simply because of its overly loud exterior

Honda Civic FD, the greatest Civic ever?

The Civic nameplate has been a constant staple in the Honda’s product line-up since 1972. To say that the Civic is important to Honda is a gross understatement.

Here's how important the Honda Civic EK is  - without it, there'd be no Civic Type R

Ahh, the Honda Civic. Like it or not, everyone’s heard of them and chances you may have even considered one - brand new or otherwise. Sure, they’ve got their fair share of stereotypes (ahem, budak lambang H) but you can’t deny they’re damn good at what they do. Runs practically forever, parts are cheap enough to source and most generations still look the part. Jason thinks that the FD is the greatest Civic ever. Agreeable? Maybe.

The 11th generation Honda Civic will be revealed on Twitch in a few days.
