Mattel issued the first Honda Civic Si in 2000. The scale of this 2 door coupe is about 1:51. Since then, it has come in various colors and wheels. This casting comes with a race interior – complete with race harnesses in the front seats and a roll cage. In most cases, the tampoed graphics and decals are quite detailed for a HW of this class. Variations were common from mismatched wheels.
