Honda enthusiasts in the U.K. can now put a deposit down for the new Civic Type R.
The all-new hot hatch will launch in the U.K. next year and the Japanese automaker is expecting “unprecedented demand,” allowing customers to place an order with a £3,000 deposit to secure a spot at the front of the line. Previously, Honda promised that the Civic Type R will “be the most extreme and high-performing Type R in the 22 year history of the red ‘H’ badge,” which presumably means it will even outperform the NSX Type R.
Built at the automaker’s plant in Swindon, U.K., don’t expect the Civic Type R to show up at dealerships in the U.S. anytime soon.
