The Honda Civic Type R Euro has been a solid hit in Japan. The UK-built hatchback packs 201 horsepower, love-it-or-leave-it styling and a suspension that has been honed on the lunging tarmac of Europe. No, it may not be as fast as its predecessors, but that hasn’t stopped Japanese buyers from snapping them up in troves. Honda says that since the car went on sale in November, the company has sold 1,850 units on its home turf.

To celebrate, Honda is turning out a special edition version of the Civic Type R Euro three-door. Don’t expect anything too radical, though. The car is basically a styling update and not much else. The bodywork gets a slight redesign for the 2010 model year. If Honda’s planning anything spectacular, the company is keeping its secrets to itself.

For those of you still holding onto the hope that we may finally see a hatchback version of the Civic here in the States once again, keep dreaming. Hit the jump for the press release.
