Sequential FK8 Type R

Our FK8 Type R Sleeper...

Now we know what you're thinking - out of today's modern hot-hatch line-up, the FK8 Type R is the LAST car that the average passer-by may consider a sleeper...

For the unknowing, the Civic is an assault on the eyes, throwing ultra-aggressive styling, sharp angles and spoilers at you like nothing else... and for those who do know what the little red R badge means, the FK8 is often mistakenly put at the slower end of the list of hot hatches - especially when that list includes vehicles likes the Audi RS3 or the Mercedes A45 AMG.

What we mean when we say sleeper is that we have built a fire breathing, racecar shifting monster for the road! we no longer need to worry about off the line speed when someone challenges us at the traffic lights...

Our Sequential FK8 was originally a customers car that we assembled - effectively a carbon copy build of our FK8 Time Attack car at the time + a Quaife sequential gearbox good good measure!!

After a few years with the customer, the car returned to us as one of our own

After having enormous amounts of fun with the car, we decided to take it back under the knife for a new project - integrating Pnuematic shifting system with Genuine Honda paddles from an FK7 Civic to control the shifts.
