They only made 100,000 of them, and let me tell you they are terrors on the strip. Ask me how I know! The Type R came with FACTORY cut springs, quad 4" exhaust AND the ultra-rare quad foglight option. They are a wolf in sheeps clothing but if you look closely you can tell one by the bright yellow V-TEC sticker plastered across the windshield. Now, the stock Tercel is fast but I've seen the Type R regularly turn in 1/4 ETs in the high 8's on nothing but bicycle tires. I just saw one the other day put a blown nitrous Pro-stock vette to shame. Consider yourself forewared before you too become yet another notch on his chain steering wheel...
