Type R Honda automobile models are special performance editions of their respective model families. The design of Type R ("R" for "Racing") models was originally focused mainly on race conditions, with an emphasis on minimizing weight, and maximizing performance potential (e.g. engine tuning, suspension set-up, etc). Thus, Type R models were first conceived for little less than racetracks. However, due to Honda's increased focus on their highly regarded VTEC engines, the Type R was eventually designed for a much wider market. The reason why the Type R's traditionally have a red Honda badge and Championship White as an option is to relate to their first F1 winning car, which also had a red Honda badge and Championship White. Honda's racing cars and F1 cars often or all the time contain a red Honda badge.
