No worries I’ll try and clear up the confusion. From mid 2002 (possibly March), the only FDs sold were one of the following three designations.
1. spirit R (type A, B and C)
2. Type R Bathurst R (only approx 500 made)
3. Type R Bathurst
The Type R Bathurst is the most common model. It’s not a particularly special edition as such. It’s effectively the base model for that year. The Type R Bathurst came with height adjustable showa suspension and 280ps (n3g1 turbos).
The Type R Bathurst R was a limited run. They are easily identified by the sticker on the c pillar. Came with height adjustable showa suspension, 280ps, mazdaspeed carbon effect gear knob, handbrake handle, gearstick surround, heater control surround and speedo surround. These are fairly hard to find and don’t pop up for sale all that often. I’m only aware of two of these cars in the U.K.
The car in that advert is the more common Type R Bathurst.
