    Today, Honda unveiled a CTR Black edition for the UK. This car will be limited to 100 units.

    One thing to note is that this wraps up the production run for the UK CTR. ;)

    I wish THIS was the CTR we received in America! It looks so much more like a hatchback!! The soon to be released American version looks more sedan like in the front and beefier.

    But this U.K. Edition Black model is perfection!

    The caR we are getting is based on a completely different platform. As I understand it, the current UK R is based on the Fit platform.

    It's my thought that the next R will be much more intense.

    *patiently waits*

    It almost feels like time is moving backwards...

    It also doesn't help that Honda hasn't revealed any real information since the prototype reveal.

    At least five us some spec ranges or something.

    Another day closer to the 2018 Civic type R release though:coffee:

    I do like the looks of the exterior. But what I love about the euro type r was the interior. It kinda reminded me of the 8th gen civic si we have in America. In my eyes that's the closest thing we had to a type r. But America woke up and now we are getting it.

    More like Honda finally woke up and delivered. I have no doubt the CTR would have always sold well.

    Oh no question about that. I definitely would have bought one if they were available long before now. That's why I've gotten so many si's cause we never had a type r.

    Same. And I know it's not needed and adds a small bit of weight to the car but a sun/moon roof would have been appreciated. That's something I use a lot. But the car itself will be so awesome that won't really matter. Most likely will get the si. It's such a good package for the money.

    The new one will be a global version built in the UK.

    I hope so. Let's hope they're not gonna soften up the car for the US market.

    I can only suggest to you to wait and see what package the ctr will deliver and compare. My guess will be that the ctr will be a purposeful performance car and a stronger value than the si (more of a sporty car imo, owned a 08 Si and 89 crx si)

    I think for those of you who plan on modding the car more, you may be better off using that money for the premuim on a ctr instead of say mods on a si.

    My belief is to the car you're happy from the factory and dont have to mod as much. You may even end up spending less (as its easy to blow 10-20k or more in parts)

    Definitely not based on the Fit platform. Would be cool though, it would make the car that much smaller!
