The Limited Edition Civic just went on a diet to become the new daddy of the Type R lineup. The hatchback rides on forged aluminum BBS wheels that reduce unsprung weight by 18 pounds according to Honda. The carmaker also stripped out 28.2 pounds of sound-deadening material, so not just lighter, but it’s louder. The European-spec models shed further weight by eliminating air conditioning, audio, and the Honda Sensing suite of driver aids, but those features will be retained on the US spec models.The forged wheels are wrapped by Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, with dampers turned for the new wheel/tire package and recalibrated steering. The 600 units can only be availed in the Phoenix Yellow Pearl colour, and god does it look beautiful! Each car will have an individually numbered serial plate denoting its original country of sale.
