The Honda Civic has been the darling of Import Tuners ever since it appeared on the market, favoured for it's light weight and Honda's advanced technology and low entry cost it's an ideal starter for first time tuners. You'll see modified Civics in every stage from a simple exhaust and lowered suspension to the well thought out example you see here. Not one part of this car has been left untouched.
Ray's Work wheels, light weight, strong and ultimately very cool. They have been a must have for JDM tuners worldwide.
Honda's Vtec engine offers great top end power but when mated to a big Garret GT3040 Turbo thats a recipe for 380 horsepowe at the front wheels.
With the right suspension and tyre combination the Honda Civic can handle with the best of them. Low centre of gravity, short wheel base and light weight gives you car with fantastic chuckability.
How many Honda Civics have you seen with this pedigree of brakes. Porsche callipers give ultimate breaking capability especially when you consider they are now on a car approximately 200-300kgs lighter. Make sure you're wearing your seatbelt when you plant the anchors.
No part of this car has been left un-touched. Incredible engineering in this intake plenum chamber.
Turbosmart is a great Australian brand exporting quality parts for modern performance cars. Turbosmart have developed a strong reputation in the international marketplace.
JDM looks without garish adornments make this Honda Civic a handsome hot hatch.
