Civic Type R Development Car tested at Tochigi Test Track

By Faiming_low on 20 Nov 2013

Attached Image Honda has showcased the latest Civic Type R development car at its in-house test track in Tochigi, Japan.
 
Attached Image The Civic Type R will be the first model in Europe to have one of Honda’s all new VTEC TURBO engines from Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology range. This 2.0-litre, direct injection, four-cylinder turbo engine is expected to have class-leading output in excess of 300bhp and will be EURO 6 compliant. It is also believed to produce more than 400Nm of torque through its front wheels.

Adaptive dampers will allow the car to have a decent ride when driven on normal roads and be sufficiently stiff when on track.

Considering that the car has a target of being the fastest production hatch around the Nurburging, large Brembo brakes will come as standard and 19-inch rims are a must.

The currently camouflaged car is being put through its paces as part of an extensive testing process taking place in Europe and Japan, ahead of its much anticipated launch in 2015.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
