Give the CTR some red accents by adding a three-piece garnish over the grille and upper part of the headlights for the equivalent of £222 (at current conversion rates). Honda also offers a replacement £1,183 carbon fibre rear wing with a crimson polyester weave for a dash of colour at the back. Buyers can also pick from Crystal Black Pearl or Red mirror covers for £103 each. A set of yellow LED fog lights go for £233.

As a replacement for the attractive stock wheels, Honda has a set of 18-inch forged pieces for £1,849. They are the same 8.5-inch width as the parts that come on the Type R.

Inside, you can spend a lot of money on accessories. An aluminium shift knob with red leather covering costs £137. The company also offers red-tinged carbon fibre trim for the dashboard (£333), centre console (£185), and door panels (£318). The company offers red LED accent lights for the footwell (£74), door pockets, and handles (combined £96).

In the UK, the CTR starts at £30,995. Its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder produces 316bhp and 295lb-ft of torque. Only available gearbox is a six-speed manual because an automatic would allegedly make the hot hatch too heavy.
