Mark Shipley: 2017 Honda Civic Type R

Mark Shipley has been driving and modifying Hondas for the past 10 years, having grown up on Honda Tuner magazines and dreaming of building one of his own. He picked up a 2017 Honda Civic Type R on his birthday in 2017, and originally had no plans for serious modification. Of course, those intentions never last long, and it was only a short time before he decided he had to show off his own modified artwork in the form of his new Type R.

FAVORITE MODIFICATION
"I can't favor one mod over any other, because it's the end result that ultimately makes the build so amazing, but if I had to pick it would be the ASC Speed Metal custom strut bar. Dana Czech does amazing work when it comes to custom fabrications."
