Honda Type R Bloodline
With the new generation of the Honda Civic Type R (FK8; CTR) set to arrive in Honda showrooms in September, we wanted to take a look back at where it all began and at the cars that have worn the ‘Type R’ badge in the past.
Designed as a simple recipe available straight from the factory — combine a little bit of power with a stiff chassis for a nimble, track-ready streetlegal speed demon — the CTR has always had a focus on minimal weight; maximum tunability; and further potential in the engine, suspension, and braking departments. It has long been a staple on professional circuits, as well as being used for street duties over the last 20 years — not surprising, when you consider the diehard fan base it has amassed along the way.
