A bit of background on this conversion:
The car started off as an FD Civic with 5AT R18 motor. Rumor has it, the owner works for Honda (hence, all original CTR parts were used). As for the serial numbers, I would have to guess those were fabricated. The photos were taken in Thailand.

Wait....so it's still an R18? No mention of a swap that I saw...

And, zspeedzkwy, I'm sure they could have just as easily imported it. But they probably thought this was more fun or something...

Thats insane... would of been even cooler if they had done a k20 engine swap with a 6 spd. But mad props to them, looks really clean! :thumb:

Extremely well done conversion but why waste money converting an auto R18? Sure, now it looks like a Type R, but it's not even close in terms of performance. I can understand if it was an auto, and they only did a simple front and rear end conversion, but the seat swap, Championship White paint job, etc...that must have cost a pretty penny.

they probably spent a pretty penny on this conversion. parts and labor must have been through the roof. definitely needs a k20 tho.

It looks great, nice and clean; but don't disgrace the Type R name by putting the badges all over it! Would be just fine with the body and red H emblems. Leave all the Type R stuff off of it! I guess now I can order the Type R emblems and put them on my Auto EX! :iorun:

I would have a HARD time seeing my baby all ripped apart just to be painted Championship White.... That almost made me cry! :eek:hnoes:
