Model History[]

The Honda Civic Type R (2008) is a casting designed by Ryu Asada that debuted for the 2008 mainline. The casting was originally produced from 2008 to 2012 as MB753 when it was discontinued.

This casting was returned in 2022 for the 2022 Japan series and resumed production. It was retooled with a revised roof rivet and a simplified wing with the bumper becoming part of the base for easier assembly.

Card description[]

  • The stands are full and the excitement is building at the infamous Suzuka Race Course in Japan. With the ability to go from 0-60 MPH in 6.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 146 MPH, your Honda Civic Type R is the perfect car to shatter the world record!
