    Ok this isn't a 10th gen Civic Type R but it's cool enough to post anyway :)

    Presenting the Mugen Civic Type R from its debut at 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon.

    Can't wait to see a 10th gen Mugen Type R!

    I really like how the front end is more seamless. All in all I like everything about this actually.

    Looks like a cloth interior, this car is bound to be wildly expensive, so why put cloth?

    Doesn't look like leather

    I'm sure it has Recaro seats or something similar which typically comes in a high quality cloth-like material. Plus, with leather your are more likely to slide around compared to cloth seats to hold you into the seats while racing.

    These are the seats from a Type R which looks similar to the Mugens. Notice they are cloth as well.

    its possibly an alcantara type material. I prefer it to actual leather as someone posted earlier you get more grip and it saves weight. I'm sure those are a couple main reasons for the cloth.

    I'd like it with blue accents better. Fiji Blue Pearl one's to be exact. :p
