Honda wants to go for 'fastest front-wheel drive pick up truck' record

Attached Image Mirroring what BMW did with its E92 M3 pick up truck, Honda has created a pick up truck codenamed 'Project P'.

Shown at the annual SMMT Test Day, the pick up truck was created by the brand’s Product Engineering department in the Britain.

Attached Image Based on a pre-production version of the FK8 Civic Type R, the hot hatch had its C-pillars and roof chopped off and replaced by a roll bar. With the seats and boot removed, an open bed was created at the rear, mimicking a pick up truck.

The pick up truck can only seat two and retains original car’s bodykit, engine, gearbox and other mechanical parts.

Attached Image Honda reckons the pick up can do the century sprint in less than 6 seconds and will do more than 265km/h flat out, almost as fast as the hatch.

Attached Image Honda has no plans of putting this variant of the Civic Type R into production, but has joked about going after the Nurburgring lap record for the fastest front-wheel drive pickup truck title.
