Honda celebrates it's 50th anniversary with gold Civic Type-R and NSX models

Honda chose to mark their 50 years of operation in Australia with a unique range of golden jubilee products.

The Civic Type R and the NSX supercar have been chosen to get the special treatment, as well as their CBR100RR Fireblade motorbike and even a lawnmower just for kicks. The eye-searing gold foil has been created and applied by Vinyl Wraps and Graphics in partnership with the Japanese manufacturer.

Hiroyuki Shimizu, Managing Director and CEO of Honda Australia said:

“We thought about how we could celebrate our birthday, and our unique diversity in a bold and fun way. I mean, who has ever seen a golden mower or generator before?"

Sadly, no matter much you beg Honda, you can't actually buy a 50th anniversary gold edition Civic Type R or NSX straight from the factory. They have only been created to mark the occassion and are not for sale. However there's nothing stopping you from heading down to your local car wrapping specialist and getting it done yourself.
