Honda automobile Type R models are special performance editions of their respective model families.
The design of Type R models was originally focused on race conditions, with an emphasis on minimizing weight, and maximizing performance potential (e.g. engine tuning, suspension set-up). Thus, Type R models were first conceived for racetracks. However, due to Honda's increased focus on their highly regarded VTEC engines, the Type R was eventually designed for a much wider market.
Type R vehicles traditionally have a red Honda badge and championship white paint as an option, as a tribute to their first winning F1 car. Honda's racing and F1 cars often feature a red Honda badge.
Honda produced a very limited number of NSX Type R in 1992 for Japan. Major changes include a more aggressive suspension and an extensive weight reduction to 1230 kg from the normal NSX weight of 1350 kg. The NSX Type R was track oriented and, to reduce weight, lacked sound deadening, audio, electric windows and air conditioning. The NSX type R's role was fulfilled by the NSX type S Zero in 1997.
The Honda Accord Type-R (ATR) was produced from 1998 to 2003 using the CH1 Accord chassis and sold in UK/EU markets, the JDM Accord Euro-R uses the CL1 chassis, Using a naturally aspirated 2.2-litre four-cylinder DOHC H22A VTEC motor which produces 220 bhp (220ps)and the EDM was (212ps) @ 7,200 rpm and 164 lb·ft (222 N·m) @ 6,700 rpm. The Type-R Accord model is differentiated by a number of sporting features including, but not limited to, stiffer suspension and chassis, Torsen limited-slip-differential, twin-piston brakes, dual exhaust system, 17-inch alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, Recaro seats and a leather-trimmed Momo steering wheel. As an option, there was a distinctive tall and functional rear spoiler wing that most costumers opted for.
The Civic Type R models were preceded by the 1990--1991 EF9 Civic SiR hatch, and the more recent EG6 and EK4 SiR and SiR-II Civic hatchback models. The Civic SiR featured the same 160ps B16A DOHC VTEC engine as introduced in Honda's popular Integra XSi hatchback a year earlier. With the top of the line Civic model at the time (the famous Civic GTi) only available on the New Zealand market the Civic SiR was the best available to most markets and found huge popularity in Japan and around the world. Fitted with an optional LSD, power windows, A/C and power steering, they proved to be sporty. Unfortunately, the Civic SiR never found the same success in racing as the Integra due to the soft chassis of the EF9 model. The latter EG6 SiR-II had all the same luxuries as the EF9 model, with a 10 hp (7 kW) increase for the B16A engine and a marginally stiffer chassis, this time in a larger heavier body shell. The 1998 EK9 Civic was the first to be given the Type R badge. Based on the EK4 SiR chassis it featured a Type R prepared B16B engine producing 185 PS (182 hp), stiffer chassis, upgraded sway bars and strut bars, Recaro alcantara seats, 15-inch alloy wheels and a large boot spoiler. Since then, most generations have offered a Type R variant. The Type R version of the Civic has never been sold outside of Japan until the introduction of the 2nd generation chassis.
