Honda Japan Reveals Track-Only Civic Type RS

Honda fanboys, put down your VTEC cereal bowls, Honda Japan says it's releasing a new, track-only Civic Type R to be used in a new single-make racing series. The all-business Type-R sedan will be sold with no helical LSD, seatbelts, seats, steering wheel, interior trim, AV goodies and air conditioning. Such heavy-handed deleting results in a 40 percent discount over the roadgoing Civic Type R. That is, 1,690,500Yen or $14,769.15. Of course, having to add in racing seats, harnesses and other safety gear will cost extra. Or, you can just sit on the floor and steer with your feet. [Japmobiles]
