2008 Honda Civic Type R (FD2)
The Honda Civic Type R FD2 is a model that was only supplied to Japan (JDM). For the first time, the JDM Civic Type R was sold as a four-door sedan, rather than a three-door hatchback. The FD2 Type R was bigger, wider and faster than the EP3 Type R. The wheelbase grew from 2,570 mm (101.2 in) to 2,700 mm (106.3 in), giving the FD2 more stability during high speed cornering. The Japanese model's engine power output is higher than the European versions, with 225 PS (165 kW; 222 hp) being generated at 8,000 rpm and 215 N⋅m (159 lb⋅ft) of torque peaking at 6,100 rpm. Power is sent to the front wheels through a close-ratio six-speed manual gearbox, and a helical limited slip differential is fitted as standard. The front brake discs are 320 mm (12.6 in) diameter and fitted with four piston Brembo calipers. The car is fitted with Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tyres having size of 225/40 R18.
Honda claims the chassis is 50% more rigid than the previous Japan-only pre-facelift DC5 Integra Type R and features an independent rear suspension rather than the torsion beam configuration used on the FN2 Type-R. To save weight, aluminium is used extensively and bonded with adhesive instead of welded.
The FD2 is surely to be a future collectible due to it's exclusivity and exceptional driving experience. The high revving engine, 6 speed manual gearbox and amazing handling makes driving fun and addictive.
This particular example has been recently imported from Japan where it was purchased at auction where it was graded 4 (good condition). The condition is very good, low kms for a car so enjoyable to drive and comes with documentation to back the condition and mileage of the car. The car has just been registered for 12 months (NSW) and been complied to Australian standards ready for it's new owner to enjoy.
