CIVIC LEADER

Herald Sun - Motoring - - COVER STORY -

Yuji Mat­sumochi, the man re­spon­si­ble for the fastest and most pow­er­ful Civic Type R, has a hum­ble Jazz as his daily drive in Ja­pan. But that’s for prac­ti­cal rea­sons. He’s a car guy through and through. The turbo’s lead en­gi­neer, he can grab the keys to a de­vel­op­ment ve­hi­cle any time. Mat­sumochi-san’s first set of wheels be­fore join­ing Honda was a Toyota MR2 sports car. A 17-year vet­eran of Honda, he also worked on the first gen­er­a­tion NSX su­per­car and the S2000 convertible’s valve tech­nol­ogy.
