A little talk of history about the Honda Civic Type R EK9.
The first Civic to receive the Type R badge was introduced in August 1997, as EK9. The EK9 shares many characteristics with the Integra DC2 / JDM DB8 Type R such as sound deadness omission and other weight reduction measures, hand-ported B16B engine, limited-slip front helical differential and near gearbox ratio etc. The B16B engine boasts one of the highest power outputs per liter of all time for naturally-aspirated engines with 185 PS (136 kW; 182 hp) of 1.6L engine displacement. For the first time, a welded stitch monocoque chassis is used to increase chassis rigidity. The interior features Recaro red seats, Red door cards and Type R red mats, shift knob titanium and Momo wrapped in steering wheel leather.
In 1999, Type Rx was introduced featuring a CD player, colored body electrically retractable door mirrors, power windows, automatic air conditioners, key-less note opening systems, sports aluminum pedals, and a carbon center type panel. The Sir badge from the previous 2 generations was submitted to the EK4 Civic as the main hatchback sedan and sold in large numbers throughout the world due to the relatively low cost, practicality and everyday use of street performance / drivability.
