In 2001 Honda created this second generation Honda Civic Type-R that was powered by K20A2 i-Vtec 2.0 NA engine, producing 200bhp for UK market and K20A 212bhp engine for Japan. This front wheel driven hot hatch had 6 gear close ratio gearbox and had 0-60 times of 6.4 seconds for UK model and 6.2 for JDM model. Japanese models were build in UK and shipped over for resale with extras like LSD, Championship white paint work etc. that European Market models missed out on. Honda Civic Type-R generation II won many "Hot hatch of the year" awards and became very popular across the globe, following the steps and fame of the generation I EK9 Honda Civic Type-R.
In 2004 EP3 received a facelift and in 2005 saw the arrival of this Premier Edition model which had Recaro Trendline seats (similar to those found in the Anniversary Edition, only in red and black rather than all red), a darker shade of fabric on the rear seat centre sections, a Momo Steering Wheel, Red Carpet, "Type R" embossed into the front brake calipers and privacy glass on the rear windows. These were available in Milano Red, Nighthawk Black, Cosmic Grey and Satin Silver. The production of these cars ended in 2006 when the new generation Type-R was born.
