Jordan Civic

This may appear to be a workaday Civic in an eyewatering banana hue, but it is in fact a surprisingly rare car. The Jordan Civic was a limited-run special edition sold in the UK in 1999-2000, built in homage to the Mugen Honda Jordan Formula One team. Just 500 were built, each with their own numbered plaque featuring the signature of celebrated motorsport hobbit Eddie Jordan, the Louis Walsh of F1. The cars were based on the Civic VTi, with its revvy VTEC engine and racy spoilers, and added Sunlight Yellow paintwork, a waspish black-and-yellow leather interior, and copious Jordan decals and logos.
There aren't a lot of Jordans left, thanks to their relative obscurity and apparent throwaway nature, so it's nice to see one receiving a little love. The one you see here features XXR 002 split-rims, Tein Superstreet coilovers, a Supersprint exhaust, Integra DC2 Recaros and some aggressively adjustable rear camber arms. It'll annoy the purists, but... there probably aren't that many purists.
