Honda is building on its performance heritage for the all-new 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition. This high-performance ride will offer dynamic power and athletic handling, which it demonstrated earlier this summer when it set a new front-wheel-drive track record on the iconic Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

The Civic Type R Limited Edition set a new Suzuka record for lap time, completing the circuit in just two minutes and 23.993 seconds. More impressively, the Type R Limited Edition beat the track time of exponentially more expensive performance cars without any performance enhancements or modifications.

While the Type R Limited Edition hasn’t been released yet in the American market, it will be offered soon with only 600 units available. This makes the bold model a rare ride, likely making it a future collector’s item.

For this special-edition model, the Honda brand used lightweight, forged aluminum BBS wheels and reduced its weight by up to 46 pounds. It comes with Michelin® Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and recalibrated steering, giving maximum control and feedback. The Civic Type R Limited Edition will only be available in a unique Phoenix Yellow exterior paint.

If you want to join the excitement of owning a 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition and live around Vallejo, California, then make sure you stop into Avery Greene Honda. We’ll do our best to help you get behind the wheel of one of these ultra-limited, record-breaking performance cars.

2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition Sells Out in Four Minutes

2020 Honda Civic Type R

There’s no denying that the 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition is in high demand. This special-edition Civic recently went on sale on the Honda Canada website — and every one of the 100 units that are available in that region was sold in just four minutes.

This is the same thing that occurred in the United Kingdom, which only had 20 units available.

Honda is only selling 1,000 units of the Civic Type R Limited Edition with 600 of them going to the United States market. Each one of these special-edition Civic’s is painted in Phoenix Yellow, and you must reserve one with a $1,000 deposit — though we don’t know how much the vehicle will cost in the US.

In the UK, the Civic was listed as £39,995, which amounts to about $46,600. The US-spec vehicle will have some different features than the European option, including an air-conditioning system.

Other features that the Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition will offer include a weight reduction, 20-inch BB alloy wheels, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 semi-slick tires, an Alcantara steering wheel, and a new counter-weighted teardrop gear knob. Overall, it’s expected that the Limited Edition model will cost about $10,000 more than the regular Civic Type R.
