Saw my first one today in Grey. It's a head turner but so fussy. It's just too in your face.

Also, it was being driven by a complete bellend which unfortunately, screams of the demographic that will pick them up.

Full throttle redlining 1st in a single lane car park just to hear the turbo wastegate and exhaust isn't cool.

Not sure of this has been posted before but it'S a good review on the Civic Typre R from Chris Harris, comparing the 2001 model to the new one.
This also kind of fits in with other discussions on here regarding earlier hot hatches vs today's.



PS: I agree with most of what Chris says.

If that's the case it's a demo car or press car as no deliveries have been made to customers yet.

He did look and walk like a stereotypical wide boy car salesman so I'd assumed it was a demo car.

I don't know why but I'm starting to quite like the look of the last gen Type R........ Thought it looked terrible when it was released, but I keep on seeing one in black and looks really mean and purposeful..... 👀

Probably, don't think I could ever change my view on the new one though!
