The Accord Type R is the classic Honda Type R formula: lighter, more powerful and with significantly improved handling. This tried and tested Honda recipe truly excelled with the Accord.
Described by Evo as “very special indeed” the Accord Type R not only outpaced its competitors of the time, but did it with style. This particular Accord is in exceptional condition throughout – one of those rare cars where we can’t overstate just how good it is.
Inside, outside and mechanically this car delivers. The owner described it as “almost too good to drive”, we can see why!

Honda might have stripped back everything they could to achieve the super light weight of the Type R, but make no mistake, the inside of this Accord makes for a fantastic driving experience.
Oozing early 2000’s style, with the deep black Recaro bucket seats (in perfect condition) and the original titanium gear knob, the inside of this Accord looks fantastic.
Everything works exactly as it should and is in perfect un-modified condition.
- Exceptional condition
- One tiny blemish on the wing mirror
- All four wheels are perfect
As with the interior the exterior of this Accord doesn’t disappoint; in exceptional condition there is only one tiny imperfection on one of the wing mirrors, otherwise it looks like it has just rolled out of the Honda factory. Even all of the original decals are present and correct, while the windows, badges, light lenses and trim are in fantastic condition.
With its distinctive Type R styling it looks as good as it goes, and being in such exceptional condition it’s sure to attract attention. This isn’t just ready to show, it’s ready to win shows.
- Starts, runs and drives perfectly
- Little work carried out due to the very low mileage
- Regularly serviced regardless of mileage
- Cambelt changed in 2021
As you would expect of a car in this condition and with such low mileage it works perfectly. The owner reports that it drives exactly as it should and there are no unusual noises.
Worth noting is that this is an exceptionally original car, even mechanically - it still has the original exhausts as well as the original red paint on the cam cover and when the owner changed the battery he replaced it with an original Honda one.
Kept garaged and meticulously maintained, this car is in exceptional condition, with both the engine bay and underside presenting perfectly.
Entirely original and presented in exceptional condition with ultra low mileage and only two owners from new, this may just be the best Accord Type R in the country.
