Production version of the new Civic Type R surfaces

By Faiming_low on 05 Mar 2017 in New model

Attached Image With the Geneva Motor Show opening very soon, photos of the new Honda Civic Type R have made their appearance on the web.

Judging from the two photos that have leaked out, the production version of the car looks almost identical to the concept shown last year. No interior photos were available at press time.

Attached Image Honda has announced that the new Type R will feature a newer version of its 2.0-litre VTEC turbocharged engine that produces 305bhp in the current model. Unfortunately, no other details on the engine were given.

Honda has said that the outgoing Type R was an afterthought for the Civic series while the new model was designed in from the start of the program. This allowed them to claim that this new generation model will massively benefit its driving dynamics.

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?
