    I don’t think I’ve ever even seen it before in person. I wonder what that YouTube feels like that had his car painted. If I did that and then they launched the car in the same color I’d be a bit buthurt I spent all that money.

    Once yellow is OEM, he will strip his car back down and repaint it Satin Silver Metallic and it will be the "ONLY ONE IN THE WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    If you happen to see an S2000 or an old Civic hatchback from the late 90s (forgot what gen or model year). This isn't technically a 'new' color for Honda, but would be new for the FK8 CTR.

    I personally would love to see the orange they have on the new NSX carry to the CTR.

    That would be nice. However, if they released FK8 in Midori Green, I'd instantly trade my '17 for one.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong, but the video he shot at Nurburgring shows 2 different type R’s, the yellow one and also a white one (smaller wing and less plastic bits). I’m curious to know what the white one is?

    White 1 is spy shots from late 2018, before the 2019 model was announced. At the time, people were speculating that it will be a slight refresh given to the 2019 model. Turns out it wasn't.

    White Type R with small wing was at Nurburgring last week along with the yellow one. It appears to be the same one folks were spotting last year.

    Watch the video from last week, he shows the yellow Type R come by, and then the white Type R comes by a few minutes later, anyone know what that stripped down Type R is please do say. I’m guessing it’s ezactly that, a stripped down cheaper Type R.

    Doesn't make sense to me for Honda to be testing a 2020 on the 'ring as it's the last year of this model. Then, I thought, what if they're thinking of putting a DCT in for the final year?
