2006 Honda Civic Type – R EP3 Premier Edition



Viewing by appointment only.

Here we are offering, a fantastic opportunity to purchase a real modern classic.

The Honda Civic Type R EP3 is fast becoming a very sought after hot hatch, with its much admired chassis & engine, it is not hard to see why.

What we have here is the ‘ultimate’ UK variant of the EP3 Type R… A Premier Edition which was the run off/final model.
With low mileage, low owner original examples becoming more & more difficult to find, we do not expect this example to be for sale for long at all.

54,170 miles from new
Only 2 owner from new (first owner for 15 years)
No modifications
Great interior condition
Great underside condition
Original floor mats
All original booklets in original wallet
Original purchase invoice
Freshly serviced at Honda
Supplying dealer window decal


A great history file compliments this Type R.

With the original owner having kept the car for 15 years before finally deciding to sell, it was clearly the owners pride & joy.
All service invoices, MOT certificates & booklets are in the file, including the original purchase invoice.

Below is the service history:
3,915 miles – 2007

11,730 – 09

The 2023 services are: Major service at Honda, including Oil & oil filter, brake fluid flush, fuel filter, coolant flush, air con service.
Followed by a gearbox oil change, spark plugs & air filter at a specialist.
The car has also recently had new tyres all around.

Clearly a well loved car by both the original owner & the second owner.

Body & Paintwork

Finished in the very sought after Grey, this example looks great.

All glass, badges, decals & trims are all original & are of course in good order.
The rear glass is factory tinted, as was standard on the Premier Edition.

The car presents very well & these are becoming increasingly hard to find in such original & honest condition without modifications.

Interior & Trim

Being a Premier Edition, it has the fantastic Red & Black Recaro seats, along with red carpets & door inserts, all of which are in great condition.

All buttons, trims & switches are in good condition, the steering wheel, gear knob & pedal rubbers are all in great order with very minimal wear.
The seats are in great condition, with only very minor wear on the drivers bolster, although this is being fussy.

Original floor mats are still fitted & again, are in great condition.
No modifications have been carried out, it is just as Honda intended.


The legendary K20 – What a great little engine!

Anybody familiar with these cars, will know that the engine is the star of the show, a high revving 4 cylinder with VTEC which loves to rev!

Mated to a beautifully operating 6 speed manual gearbox, these are well known for being a superb car to drive & to cover ground at a very impressive rate should the mood take you.

Highly regarded as one of the best fwd drivers cars & hot hatches of modern times, the EP3 chassis & the K20 engine are a superb combination.
The engine loves to be revved & the VTEC noise is addictive.

The engine bay itself presents well, as per the pictures.

Running Gear

On the road all running gear performs exactly as you would expect.
The clutch & gearbox operate beautifully & the handling is great.

Brake calipers have previously been painted red which suits the car well.
