 “If Honda does not race, there is no Honda. Racing improves the breed.” – Soichiro Honda.

To this day, our founder’s thinking remains a driving force behind the Honda brand. Honda has showcased our sports pedigree in everything from Formula 1 to the 1992 unveiling of the legendary Type R.

Across the Sports DNA range, Honda gives everyday drivers a taste of this exciting racing heritage – always with the joy of driving at the forefront.

The Type R sports bucket front seats, expertly upholstered in red suede-style fabric, provide unparalleled support during high-speed driving manoeuvres. Enhancing the sporty design, the black suede-style rear seats showcase meticulous red stitching, adding sophistication and highlighting the attention to detail in every aspect of the car.

The sleek black Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel offers enhanced grip and control, allowing you to feel every turn and corner with precision. The titanium alloy gear shift knob and alloy sports pedals further enhance the dynamic feel of the cabin, ensuring that every interaction with the controls is precise and exhilarating.
