Is the sticker still in the drivers door sill. If so that will have all information. Japan doesn't really base cars off vin so finding exact info is a little difficult.

No it shouldn't be a Bathurst. It would have an over sized gas tank and and a lot of random carbon fiber. Type r is kind of the base model with basic trim focused on more sports than luxury.
