Although it is so regretful that many have failed to book a PH-spec Honda Civic Type R for their own, they still got a chance to adore the model up close when it was exhibited at the Manila International Auto Show last May. This hot hatch did stir up social media that week as it was highly praised by many event-goers.

The car is run with a 2.0-liter VTEC turbo, cranks out 360hp and 400Nm of torque, paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox.
