HONDA AUSTRALIA RELEASES CIVIC TYPE R MERCHANDISE
Honda Australia has launched a Civic Type R merchandise range to celebrate the Honda Civic Type R winning the crown for MOTOR Performance Car of the Year 2018.
Honda has sourced and developed high-quality lifestyle merchandise for Honda owners, and those Type R enthusiasts who are looking for bespoke accessories.
Called the Honda Collection, a range of products covering fashion, daily accessories and tech gadgets is available. There are keyrings, charging cables, drink bottles, sports watches for men and a Danish-designed chronograph watch for women. In the fashion area, Honda Civic Type R polos, caps, vests and jackets are available in sizes ranging from Small to 3XL.
The Type R jackets and vests also have the famed Nürburgring record lap time for front-wheel drive cars — 07:43:80 — embossed into the inner lining.
For the ideal weekend away there is also a range of luggage, including a bespoke Honda weekender bag in a tweed-like material and subtle “Honda” embossed branding.
Customers can also choose between two model Civic Type Rs, available in either 1:18th scale or 1:43th scale. The 1:18th scale model Civic Type R is available in five colours that replicate the production car, Championship White, Brilliant Sporty Blue, Rally Red, Sonic Grey and Crystal Back. The 1:43th scale car is only available in Championship White.
“With the success of the fifth-generation Civic Type R, we understand that our keen enthusiasts really want to stand out from the crowd so we’re celebrating the success of this performance hatch and the MOTOR Performance Car of the Year 2018 win with a range of apparel and accessories,” Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins, said.
“There’s some really exciting accessories but the quality and attention to detail of the models really stands out. For customers who’ve ordered a Honda Civic Type R, or are even planning to buy one, the scale models are the perfect accessory for their home or office.”
To date Honda has sold more than 400 Honda Civic Type Rs, which has exceeded all expectations. With a host of auto media accolades globally and in Australia, the company is aiming to maintain the sales momentum.
