Anyway, after 50 years it’s gold, something Honda’s taken very seriously to celebrate five decades of selling cars (and bikes, and power tools…) in Australia. Thus it’s applied a gold wrap to a Civic Type R and NSX, as well as some two-wheeled cars, a lawnmower and a power generator, to mark the occasion.
