Good thing they never made an Accord Type-R... makes things easy.

I used to believe this, but as of recently I am not so sure, I am starting to think that in Europe there was an actual type-r.

are you sure that that particular model is the Euro R, there are quite a few of that body style(CH chassis I think) for sale under the Type-R name.

Type R:

Top one looks like the 6th gen EuroR and the lower one is the 5th gen Type-R that was on Top Gear...

EDIT: That black one looks like it has US plates... it must be an imported Torneo EuroR rebadged as an Accord.
