The 3rd generation Civic JDM Type R was offered in two models, one developed for the Japanese domestic market and one developed for the UK and international markets, each matching the availability of a regular 8th generation model. Civic Type R (FD2) was released on March 30, 2007 in the Japanese market.
There are 2 Different Versions of The Civic:
For the first time, the JDM Civic Type R was sold as a four-door sedan rather than a three-door hatchback. The FD2 Type R is bigger and wider, heavier than the EP3 Type R. The wheelbase has been increased from 2,570 mm (101.2 in) to 2,700 mm (106.3 in), giving the FD2 more stability when cornering at high speeds.
The front bumper is wider and differs from the standard Civic in its aerodynamic design. The rear bumper has a diffuser integrated into the bumper and the large rear wing completes the aero package. The signature black and red bucket seats inside are no longer manufactured by Recaro like the previous version, but developed by Honda.
The engine power of the Japanese JDM model is higher than that of the European version (225 hp). (165 kW, 222 PS) torque peak at 8000 rpm and 215 N m (159 lb ft) at 6100 rpm (increased at 201 PS (148 kW, 198 PS) at 7800 rpm and 193 Nm (142 lb) -ft at 5600 rpm for European models). Honda reported a 10 horsepower increase in the midrange. (7kW, 10hp).
Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a six-speed manual transmission and a spiral limited-slip differential is standard.
The front brake discs are 320 mm (12.6 in) in diameter and are equipped with 4-piston Brembo calipers. Tires are Bridgestone Potenza RE070 size 225/40 R18. The FD2 has an independent rear suspension rather than the torsion beams found on the FN2 TypeR. To reduce weight, aluminum is widely used and is glued together rather than welded. The chassis is larger and stiffer than the JDM Integra Type R, but weighs only 70 kg (154 lb)..
