Finished in gorgeous ‘Nighthawk Black’, this very straight example of the FN2 Civic Type R is one of the best i've ever driven!



Just had a full service

12 months MOT



Take a look at the pictures and you will see - this isn’t your average, abused Type R!







This generation of Civic Type R does occasionally get some stick based on the handling characteristics, thanks to the rear torsion bar suspension set-up, however, this particular example has a trick up it’s sleeve to combat that - a full BC racing Type BR coilover suspension set-up! It handles like it is on rails! That suspension alone cost almost £1,000!



Aside from the suspension (which is a much needed modification if you want to really drive your Type R as it is supposed to be driven), This little corker is totally standard, meaning that you can avoid the boy racer image whilst still getting the absolute maximum out of the car.



This car really does look the part. The gorgeous paint gleams in the sun and the original factory wheels are still very bright. You can tell that this one has been looked after and not thrashed like so many other Type R’s unfortunately are.



Naturally, being an 11 year old car there are some minor imperfections such as stone chips to the front of the car and some minor marks here and there on the wheels, but overall this is almost certainly one of the cleanest / straightest FN2 Type R’s out there for this money - especially with that suspension set up!



Inside, the interior is absolutely gorgeous and totally complete with no rips, tears, stains, burns or unpleasant smells to speak of.

It is common for the gear gaiter to split and deteriorate on these cars due to the material Honda used, however this one has a gorgeous Black / Red stitched alcantara item fitted instead (which looks the business), it really is gorgeous.



The driving experience of this car is nothing short of breath-taking! That legendary K20 under the bonnet is still as willing and as peppy as the day it left the showroom in 2009.

VTEC comes on song and plants you back into those super supportive bucket seats exactly as you would expect.

The gearbox is almost surgically precise with all 6 gears engaging and running as Honda intended.

There are absolutely no knocks, bangs, whines or other undue noises from the drive train.

The clutch is in great health and offers absolutely no slip or weakness whatsoever.



Finally, as already mentioned, the handling is this cars ‘Pièce de résistance’ thanks to that BC racing coilover set up. The car doesn’t ride super low (although you could adjust this suspension to be like that if that’s your thing), but it hugs the tarmac like a pure-bred track monster!



To summarise; if you are looking for a modern, fast, reliable, fun-to-drive car that can be used as a daily commuter in the week and a B-road basher on the weekends - This is undoubtedly the car for you.



This example highlights all that is good about the FN2 Type R without any of the typical drawbacks.



If you are looking for the best example of an FN2 - you owe it to yourself to come and see this one.
