The run-out Honda Civic Type R Black Edition

After just eighteen months, production of the current Civic Type R has come to an end. A total of 2,500 examples were allocated to the UK market and, to celebrate the model's departure, the final 100 have been built to Black Edition specification.

Honda reckons the Type R Black Edition will become “a true collector's item” although, in reality, there's not much to distinguish it from the regular version. The rear wing end plates gain a red finish and the two-tone interior colour scheme is unique, but those are the only differences.

Mechanically, everything is unchanged. That means power still comes from a 2.0 litre VTEC turbocharged petrol engine that delivers 306 bhp (228 kW / 310 PS) and 400 Nm (295 lb/ft) via the front wheels.

The Black Edition has an on-the-road price of £32,300. For anybody more interested in waiting for the next-generation Civic, the Type R variant is due at dealers before the end of 2017.
