Suprisingly, there is a 3rd generation of Civic FN-2 Type R imported to Malaysia. Not sure is it whether by private imported or by parallel importer and its price OTR. I am seriously curious on the price of the car.
Briefly to introduce this model to refresh, Civic FN-2 Type R is offered only as a three door hatch back and uses a different chassis and internal layout comparing to FD-2 Type R. The rear suspension formerly a double wishbone set up has been changed to a less complex torsion beam axle. The drawback is this model only offering 201 PS at 7,500 rpm and 193 Nm of torque at 5,600rpm due to its engine tuning. It runs on 225/40 R18 Y88 Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyres, The car has a curb weight of 1,267kg.
From the photo, there isn't any Brembo calipers fitted too.
