Unique to the JDM version, the Championship white paintwork is in fantastic order throughout with a rich, deep lustre and as-new factory panel gap and fitment. The front bumper and grille show no signs of wear with plastics, rubbers and surrounds all exemplary – as you would expect there is very little to belie the cars age with the lights and windscreen showing zero chips or cracks. The Championship white with matching wheels is pure Honda Type R fever; the purists specification for this sublime hatchback.

The uniform EP3 cabin has been treated to a thorough makeover with the Recaro reclining buckets as the centre piece allied with a Momo wheel and weighted shift knob. The JDM spec carpet and mat set offers some welcome colour and warmth alongside the soft alcantara strips in the door cards. The seats maintain a soft and supple contour, free of any wear or marks whilst the carpets and mats are as clean as they left the factory. The popular lightweight Skunk2 weighted shift knob and versatile Sony Bluetooth head unit are the only non OEM items to be found.

A raft of engine and chassis revisions really set the JDM car apart from the car we saw here in the UK. As well as higher lift camshafts, higher compression pistons and improved intake and exhaust manifolds the car has completely revised gear ratios with better acceleration than it’s european counterpart. The engine fires happily into life with the gearbox light and easy to use. The VTEC system boosts in as it should and is even hungrier for revs stacked up against the closer ratio’d box. The package is unified by a helical LSD that transforms both the feel and the power distribution to the road. Presentation is of the highest order with only light patina of the intake manifold and VTEC branding to report. The oil has been renewed and filter replaced.

The traditional paint-matched wheels still present in their original paint from the factory, unrestored and looking fantastic alongside the bright bodywork. All 4 tyres have just been replaced on time with the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A. As well as new rubber on each corner, both front and rear brake pads have been replaced with genuine parts to ensure that the car performs as it should.

Sold to it’s first and only owner in Japan, 2002, this JDM special made its way to the UK in May of 2015. The car is registered with a valid V5 and MOT and is ready to be registered into the first UK owners name. With recent brake pads, oil service and 4 new tyres this Type R is in perfect mechanical health and ready to use immediately.
