Stunning Aegean Blue, Modded Civic Type R Is a Head-turner
Purchased ‘right off the truck’ last June, standout Type R hits the market with some ‘tasty’ modifications.
Do you ever wonder how a practically brand-new car winds up in the used car lot only months after it was purchased? In most cases, it’s likely due to either the previous owner biting off more they could chew monetarily, opting for the hottest new thing, or finding the car not to their liking.
This 2017 Civic Type R we found on Craigslist the other day falls into a couple of different categories, including being barely driven.
“Very clean, brand new condition. I never even installed the factory floor mats,” says the seller. “I barely drive the car, as one of the reasons I’m selling. But mainly selling as I have to help my family with some personal matters.”
The Aegean Blue Type R was the 1,204th built for the 2017 model year, and was purchased “right off the truck” last June. While the engine remains stock, the Type R “has some tasty modifications done to it,” including a new set of JDM aftermarket wheels, carbon fiber side skirts and rear facia, and a ceramic window tint.
Let’s hope things improve for the seller’s family so he can bring home a new Type R in the future.
