During KLIMS 2010, Honda Malaysia displayed an Australia Spec FN2 Civic Euro Type R as one of the show car. Since the legendary FD2 Type R had discontinued early this year, the FN2 Type R is the only Type R left in Production. The FN2 Type-R is only produced at Honda’s Swindon factory in the UK. However, we are unable to confirm whether Honda Malaysia replacing the Type R model with FN2 like what’s happening in Japan.
Although this model has been sometime, we will briefly walk-thru it. The FN2 Civic Euro Type R is offered only as a 3 door hatchback and uses a different chassis and internal layout than JDM FD2 Type R. The rear suspension is on torsion beam axle. This car is powered by de-tuned K20A engine with less performance. No Brembo callipers on the front brake. It runs on 225/40 R18 Y88 Bridgestone Potenza RE050A tyres as standard. Most importantly, the car is RON95 compatible (part of the reasons lead to less performance) due to Euro Spec.
