British-built Civic Type R for Japan
* Swindon-built Type R * To be exported to Japan * Jazz production starts soon...
The British-built Honda Civic Type R is to be exported to Japan.
High demand in Japan means that a limited number of European-spec Type Rs, built at Honda's factory in Swindon, will be exported to the company's homeland.
The export model will be named the Type R Euro to distinguish it from the Japanese-spec four-door Civic Type R saloon.
Jazz production starts soon
Japan is the third country outside Europe to import the Swindon-built three-door Civic Type R: Australia and South Africa already bring in the cars.
Workers at Honda's Swindon factory also build the five-door Civic, three-door Civic Type S and the CR-V.
Production of Jazz models for Europe is due to start this autumn.
