The H logo on the red background with white paint, newly modified engine and red Recaro seats" A short phrase to define the type-R version from Honda. Type-R stands for Type Racing which was develop to satisfy the need for speed lovers. It was started in Japan at the beginning of the 90s and the first type-R product line was released to the market. It is the special edition Honda NSX type-R. Honda produced the NSX-R in a limited amount and the car weight was reduced from 1,350 kilograms to 1,230 kilograms. Now the latest Honda Type R is the Civic FK8-R. It comes with a 2.0L Turbo Charged engine. However, to me, the first civic Type R is still the best due to the small capacity and high revving engine.



The first Civic to receive the Type R badge was introduced in August 1997, as the EK9. Many may argue that the EF9 and the later EG6 and EG9 are the origin of Honda Civic Type R. However, those were called Honda Civic SiR. 


The EK9 shared many characteristics with the Integra Type R DC2/JDM DB8 such as omission of sound deadening and other weight reduction measures, a hand-ported B16B engine, front helical limited-slip differential and a Close-ratio transmission. The B16B engine boasted one of the highest power output per litre of all time for a naturally aspirated engine with 185 PS (136 kW; 182 hp) at 8,200 rpm and 160 N⋅m (118 lb⋅ft) at 7,500 rpm of torque from 1.6 L (1,595 cc) of displacement. For the first time, a strategically seam welded monocoque chassis was used to improve chassis rigidity. The EK9 Type R launched in 1997 has a total of three models:

Early model (production from August 1997 to August 1998, chassis codename EK9-100XXXX)
Facelift model (production from August 1998 to August 1999, chassis codename EK9-110XXXX)
Final RX model (produced from August 1999 to August 2000, chassis codenamed EK9-120XXXX)

In addition to only 3 years of launch, the production of EK9 is also quite rare, of which only 7,007 units were produced in the previous model, only 4,009 units were modified, and 5,225 units were in the RX version, with a total of only 16,241 units.






The interior featured red RECARO bucket seats, red door cards, red Type R floor mats, a titanium shift knob, and a Momo leather-wrapped steering wheel. The EK9 was only available for sale in Japan.

Performance figures include a 0–97 km/h (0–60 mph) acceleration time of 6.7 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 15.3 seconds. The EK9 could attain a top speed of 225 km/h (140 mph).


In 1998, the Civic Type R Motor Sports edition was introduced. It came with steel wheels, the standard Type R interior and without any creature comforts. The above figures include 200 Motor Sport Edition / N1 cars.


Type Rx model was given a CD player, body coloured retractable electric door mirrors, power windows, auto air conditioning, keyless entry unlock system, aluminium sports pedals, and a carbon type centre panel.


In 1999, Honda tuning company Spoon Sports designed a N1 racing version of the Type R that had the B16B engine redline increased from 8,400 rpm to 11,000 rpm.
