2008 Honda Civic Type R 2.0 naturally aspirated from South Africa
A driver's car with performance and reliability that won't let you down
This vehicle is built for racing and driving hard every time it is driven, and so with that said, this vehicle does what it was intended to do, as it never fails me and it performs every single day.
The interior was designed for the driver, and I for one can vouch for this. The positioning of the digital speedometer and the size of the rev counter keeps the driver's head up and eyesight on the road, and not looking down trying to find the speedo and rev counter.
This vehicle's feedback thru the steering wheel is unlike any other and is how it should be.
The precision and length of travel to each gear is a real treat to any petrol head.
Consumption? This vehicle is a little bit thirsty with an average of 12 litres per 100km in town and mixed driving.
Performance!? This vehicle's performance is like no other that I have experienced in regards to a naturally aspirated power plant under the hood. The vehicle's exterior design is still very unique to that of the vehicles of late, and I still receive compliments on a weekly basis.
When you accelerate thru the gears, you and the pedestrians know about it, as the exhaust note is loud, unique and astronomical.
This vehicle has a cold air intake as well as a full exhaust system, and lastly software, and it still performs better than a lot of more recent vehicles that make the use of a turbo.
I have owned 5 vehicles from 5 different manufacturers, and this vehicle has surpassed them all in the fields of:
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
