But for those who find it a bit steep, the firm has also revealed a highly competitive PCP deal that is expected to cost from £299 a month.
It will require a £9,000 customer deposit and be set at 5.9 per cent APR.
There’ll be a Honda Civic Type R GT version too, costing £32,295. The extra £2,300 over the standard car buys dual zone climate control, Honda Connect infotainment with Garmin sat nav, front and rear parking sensors, auto lights and wipers, red interior ambient lighting and the Honda forward collision warning system.
Honda head of cars Leon Brannan added that there are already 100 pre-orders for the Nurburgring-storming Civic Type R “before our customers have even taken a test drive or seen the final production version.
“The level of excitement around this utterly awesome brute of a car is outstanding and we have high expectations.”
