    Honda will definitely bring back Phoenix Yellow, just a matter of when.

    The back bumper also appears to be new (you can just barely see the camouflage on it in the image).

    Can only view first photo without registering? Not a fan of sites that do that. The front bumper plastic inserts look new though, so that should be exciting, should also look better than current generation ones too (maybe a direct swap will be possible if Honda goes this direction)!

    Looks like they might have changed the inserts that are currently those fake mesh parts....should help with the fakeness of them....lol

    I hope they’re directly swappable with the current gen CTR. But part of me feels like it’s a new bumper mold.

    Unless there's any new functional pieces, I'm not getting too riled up. If there is a new front middle grill, that'd be the only thing I'd retrofit. The yellow seems less punchier than the one in S2K tho. I think that one is Phoenix yellow as well. Could just be the photo.

    You'd think Sonic Grey would be the rare sighting. It looks like it might just be this one if it's actually true.

    It’s a Phoenix Yellow pre-production test car.

    I love that Y-56 is making a comeback!
    That's the color that made me fall in love with the ITR!

    Lol I know, I just thought since they are covering certain parts of the car that HPJ modded some how there connected. If parts of the car weren’t changed wouldn’t they leave them as is and not cover them? Why would they cover the roof? Or the hood scoop? What are they really covering. Side note HPJ has done a lot for the Honda brand in the US, I wouldn’t say it is not possible.
