Honda Civic Type R Mugen 200 is a real hot hatchback, which has a lot of fans all over the world. The brand is bringing together fans of the high performance car at a special event at Silverstone race track this month on 22 August.

Special guests will be Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden from the Honda Racing Team. The fans will have the chance to experience the track for themselves in a "Lap of Honour" to commemorate the Type R. There will be an exclusive Type R Only Car Park for those Honda drivers attending the event.

Production of the hot hatch for the UK market will end in October 2010, with sales ending during December, due to forthcoming Euro V emissions regulations. More than 12 000 of this generation of Civic Type R have been sold in the UK since its introduction in January 2007. Production of the 3-door Civic Type R will continue at Honda's factory in Swindon, to supply other markets further afield, such as Australia and South Africa.

Honda will use the Silverstone event to launch a new offer for all new Civic Type R customers. Buyers of the high-revving hot hatch can now benefit from significantly lower OTR prices and a competitive finance deal to make paying monthly easier.

Honda Civic Type R GT is priced at £19 495, which means that the buyer can save £2 230. The new PCP finance offer of 5.9 per cent (over 43 months) means a Type R could cost as little as £235 a month, with a 30 per cent deposit.

The offer covers the Type R GT, Type R LSD and Type R MUGEN 200 models, and runs from now until 29 September, 2010.
