Honda‘s highly acclaimed Civic Type R will end its European sales run later this year after emissions regulations become too strict for the car’s 2.0L engine.

12,000 Civic Type Rs have been sold since 2007, but Honda chose to remove the model from the European market rather than modify it to meet Euro V regulations. Despite being built in Europe, the car will remain in production at Honda’s Swindon, England facility for export markets like South Africa and Australia.

A new Civic Type R is due for the 2012 model year, but Honda is set to honor current Type-R owners with a special outing at the Silverstone race track’s British Touring Car Championship event at the end of August.
