Honda Civic Type R: Premium Accessory range launched

Honda has announced a new range of carbon-fibre accessories and a set of forged wheels for the Civic Type R. The headlining option is a new set of forged alloy wheels designed to hark back to legendary Type R models past. They're finished in white, and measure the same 20-inches as the standard units but shave 2.1kg per corner, for an 8.4kg saving in unsprung weight. They'll also lighten your wallet to the tune of $13,999.
