The Honda Civic Type R FK8 is arguably the best and flashiest Civic ever built so far. Its first production version was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, and on April 3, 2017, the Honda Civic Type R FK8 bagged the record as the fastest front-wheel-drive car on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Now, the Civic Type R FK8 is getting a Spoon treatment.
Honda Civic Type R: What will you get for P3-million
The front bumper mostly kept its design and contours. But if you look closely, the beam with the Honda badge on it has been removed. The closest idea we can get for this initiative is for better air intake – which means it will handle higher temperature operations.
You can further enhance the new Aero Front bumper by adding the Spoon FK8 aluminum radiator.
At the back, we can notice that the three exhaust pipes have been replaced by a Spoon N1 muffler kit which has now two exhaust pipes. In addition, the Spoon upgrade also comes with an Aero Rear Bumper with an option for a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic or carbon lip.
The best just got better with these Spoon upgrades
You can also get a carbon wing/spoiler to further enhance the downforce. Plus, the carbon wing goes well with the complete FK8 Aero Package, completing the carbon fiber aesthetics of your Type R.
Moreover, you can also get the classic Spoon SW388 five-spoke forged alloy wheels. It includes an 18-inch version with a 9.5-inch width and a 5x120 mm bolt pattern.

Spoon upgrade made the wing host a subtle design
To keep your Honda Civic Type R lightweight and comfortable, you can get the 5.7 kg Spoon Sports Carbon fiber seat ideal for racing and the road. It uses low rebound flexible polyurethane foam and a black spoon logo is embroidered on the seats.
You can add Spoon Sports Brake Hoses that feature a dash 3 Teflon tube, a Spoon Clutch Save Hose, a Spoon brake pads (front and rear), and a Spoon Progressive Lowering Springs for a better overall driving feel. Lastly, keep your engine bay look flashy by adding a Spoon cylinder headcover which has a red or yellow color option – top it off with a Spoon oil filler cap.
