The addition of the Honda Civic Type-R is not the first of its kind. Rocket League has been adding a slew of real-world vehicles over the past few years, including ones from BMW, Lamborghini, and even NASCAR and Formula 1. Earlier this week, the Ferrari 296GTB was made available to all players. However, it is one of the first instances of a consumer Honda vehicle being made part of the Rocket League lineup, which should prove exciting for Honda drivers.

We'll keep an eye on the exciting additions to Rocket League over the course of Season 8. For now, be sure to check out our own Rocket League topic page for the latest news and guides.
