Hot damn. The latest batch of Honda Civic Type Rs have arrived in the Philippines, and if you thought the Japanese performance hatch couldn't look any cooler, you thought wrong.
Pictured above are the aforementioned units rolling down a local port in a sleek new Polished Metal Metallic (that's really the color) paint finish. The new color, together with the vehicle's red accents, huge wing and aggressive overall design, simply looks stunning. This will be sold alongside regular Championship White and Rallye Red options.
A total of 100 new Type R units have landed on our shores, and the price tag remains at P2,980,000. Yes, the price hasn't changed.
It still runs on a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine capable of 306hp and 400Nm of torque mated to a manual transmission—the same package that allowed it to shatter numerous records in racetracks all over the globe.
The Civic Type R sold out in record time when it was first made available for reservation back in 2017. Back then, it took only 48 hours for each of the 100 initial units to be accounted for.
If you're planning on owning the hot hatch, we suggest you act fast because chances are it won't take long until you're disappointed. Honda Cars Philippines is encouraging anyone interested to immediately inquire at its nearest dealership.
