Hi there.
I have this early 1997 Type R V3, and the speedo reads up to 260KPH. can anyone tell me if this is original from factory as an option, or has the clock been changed at a later date?
Seems weird that the clocks are different colours but I know Japanese cars did weird and wonderful things.
Thanks !

They were a dealer option. The reason they are a different colour is because the MY97 Type R was the only car with the Oxford Blue clocks and the 240 & 260 KM/H clocks only came in the standard black :thumb
