Just had this email from Honda Europe re Champ White Type R

Dear Paul,

It seems like a long time ago now but I wanted to thank you for joining us at Brands for the final round of the BTCC - made extra special by a Honda win in the final race!


One of the things we at Honda said we'd do was to consider name ideas and suggestions for the new "Type R" Civic. Well, the idea produced some interesting suggestions for which we'd like to say a big thank you. We talked about the various ideas well into the night but I have to say there was no clear winner. The Marketing team have decided in the end to christen the car "Championship White Edition Civic Type R".


First road tests will be appearing this week in Autocar and Auto Express, with the car going on sale officially on 5 January 2009. Information on pricing and specification will be available at Honda (UK) from 1 December or from your local Honda dealer.


Thanks again for your support of Honda and the Type R.


All the best


Paul

Maybe it was a proliferation of bogies that put them off.

Not a fan of it myself, but thought the on sale date and spec list date might be useful for some.

Will be interesting reading the test drives in the magazines as well.

I hoped the same. Two hopes and Bob's dead was the answer I got.

A lot of thought went into that one then! It would be nice to see how much extra they are going to charge for these little ut significant changes.
