2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition – all 100 allocations for Canada sold out in under four minutes

2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition – all 100 allocations for Canada sold out in under four minutes

The 2021 Honda Civic Type R Limited Edition craze continues. All 100 units allocated for the Canadian market have reportedly been snapped up online, and this is done in a record time of four minutes – all without knowing the retail price of the hot hatch! Buyers need only pay a deposit of CAD$1,000 (RM3.2k) for the booking.

Honda Canada’s vice president of sales and marketing told Automotive News Canada that this is due to the strong and loyal fanbase of the Civic Type R. As a refresher, just 100 units of the Limited Edition CTR will be offered for Europe and Canada, while a much larger allocation of 600 units is destined for the United States.

The automaker claims that this is the “purest Civic Type R” to date, and while it’s still powered by the same 2.0 litre VTEC Turbo four-cylinder petrol engine (320 PS, 400 Nm), the hot hatch weighs a full 47 kg less. Unique to it are the 20-inch BBS forged alloy wheels with Michelin Cup 2 tyres, Phoenix Yellow paint, uprated dampers, and recalibrated steering (Alcantara-wrapped) for maximum control and feedback.

Items such as rear windscreen wiper, tonneau cover, head unit and air-conditioning systems have been removed. Sound deadening materials have been deleted as well, all in the name of weight loss. Definitely one to add to the collection!

    Why pay so much for this car when you can turn your new City into CTR with bodykit from Thailand?

    Honda has a strong presence and a strong following in Canada. Just like Malaysia.

    When in every other country in the world it isn’t.

    Not in Japan. Not in Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia. Not in Australia.

    Not in India, Europe, Middle East, Africa and South America.

    i think most of them just preorder it for resell purpose. i mean there’s only 100 units available so that is considered very rare.

    • In Malaysia, civic type r are so rare because people knows that it is too expensive and too outdated features. That’s why people are buying continental cars with BMW/Mercedes with more features

        Didn’t the Type R sold out in Malaysia during launch? has it been restocked? I think people don’t buy it simply because it is too expensive, not because it lacks performance. Millions of Malaysians still drooling over a Type R as their dream car. Just, they can’t afford it, price wise & maintenance wise.

        How many Type R’s were sold for FD2R when it was at rm200k with best performance over that price range?

  • Well, imagine no AC in Malaysia. I don’t know if this would sell at all if imported here.

    Yawn….We have thousands of Civic Type R (wannabes and ah beng kor) plying the road in Malaysia. All “laysing” spec, or “cucuk” spec.

    Take that, Canada. hahaha
