By now, day one of the motor show is winding down, so the Honda Civic Type R sits there in pavilion three all alone desperate for love and attention. Not to leave one of the most promising tuner cars in years in solitude, I hiked down there with my camera and gave the Type R the love it deserves.

Anyway, I’m going to shut up now so you can go to your own quiet special spot and enjoy these risqué images:
