CIVIC TYPE-R S-GR I-VTEC? Urgent help please

Hi,

I have seen a FN2 I am supposed to be viewing this morning but its coming up as a CIVIC TYPE-R S-GR I-VTEC.

It is a CTR but never heard of this before.

Is this just a registration mistake from new?


Help would be appreciated

It may be a S grade type R, there were 3 models, a S (little equipment and lighter) a standard R and the GT.

That is my best guess!

Clever link that according to that only 495 cw's are taxed and 6 are sorn so only 501 in the UK, and only 175 mugens taxed and 3 sorn so only 178 of them . The numbers are falling

I had no idea that it even existed.

I thought there were just the Standard Type-R (which seems rare enough!) & the Type-R GT.

Learn something new everyday!

Could it be an homologation run of cars?

No, type r s is the civic which is the lightest with no creature comforts at all.

A more radical version dubbed Race differs from the Heritage by removing components (incl. HID, AC, fog lights, audio system, sound proofing, some airbags) to reduce weight as much as 40 kg (88 lb).

This is off wiki.
