Is Honda readying the facelifted Honda Civic Type R with new parts? Or could this be a lightweight special from the Japanese company?

 

As reported by Carscoops, two prototype Civic Type Rs has been spotted being pushed to its limits on Nurburgring. A white coloured unit sporting a different bumper all round has been spotted before, signaling a forthcoming facelift and a yellow one shown here that is more interesting.blogentry-133713-0-70689900-1556016774.thumb.jpg.06b38285447a8aa6fe1dff7c15dff04c.jpgblogentry-133713-0-03323900-1556016778.thumb.jpg.71f3bebb1ab8d47f9e3197315660770c.jpg

Featuring a fully camouflaged roof and camouflaged air intake in the bonnet, these are signs that could point to Honda preparing for a lightweight variant of its hot hatch. It is also known that Honda is willing to add more variants to the civic if there is a demand for it.

As of now, it is anyone's guess on what those camouflaged photos of the Civic Type R means but Honda fans would not need to wait too long as Honda is expected to introduce the updated Civic Type R late this year.

    Does a coupe have to be pretty? We test the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe!

    Idris is back and this time we are testing another controversial BMW! We get down low with the car to look at the details that make the 2 Series Gran Coupe more than just a four-door with a sloping roof. Of course, what many of you would be concerned about would be if there is sufficient space at the rear for those unfortunate enough to have to use the rear doors. Idris looks like he is alright back there (matching clothing and seat colours entirely coincidental). But you will want to watch the video if you're planning on regularly squeezing three in there. And if you're looking for an interior that will wow passengers, the 2 Series Gran Coupe sports BMW's latest Operating System 7.0, delivering you the suite of BMW's connected services. Join us for the drive in the video! If you like your steering wheels thicc, this is something you'll want to consider.

    Overzealous Megane RS loses it and crashes into the barriers

    Another high-performance car has been spotted in a crash while going at a good speed. Our latest post shows a Black Renault Megane RS going at a decent speed before losing control while stepping on his brakes.  e166fed5-f4f3-4fbc-b00b-9de415dbd071.MP4 From the video, we can see that the driver was trying to avoid the road works in his lane but curiously, the car seems to have malfunctioned while he was on his brakes. If you looked at the video carefully, you could see straight black lines on the road, indicating that the tyres locked up before he slammed into the left side of the viaduct before bouncing across into the opposite barrier. While it did seem like the Megane was at or slightly above the speed limit, the crash is quite a mystery to us as under normal circumstances, there is more than sufficient space to stop or avoid the roadworks. What do you guys think? Could it be a brake failure, tyre puncture or a case of the driver falling asleep at the wheel? Let us know in the comments below!

    Tribecar Toyota Wish speeds on wet road and crashes, pay come, pay gone

    Happy Labour Day, Singapore! Some of us are thinking of how to utilise our pay that just came in. Then, there are jokers like this Toyota Wish driver who blows it all in an instant (and more). Speeding on PIE A dashcam video of the said driver has gone viral and here are some takeaways after watching the video. No one drives a Wish to speed. It's a family MPV for goodness sake. Don't do stupid things with other people's car, much less a rental Here's the 47-second video taken from SG Road Vigilante   The Wish loses control at the 0.09 mark of the video. Online chatter Wow. To the Toyota Wish driver, good luck paying for all the damages for a rental car.    

    This is not the way to make friends with a fellow VW owner

    For most owners who are into cars, they will tend to want to meet owners who own the same car/model as themselves. Hence from time to time, we will see many brand/model-based car clubs gather at places like the indoor stadium to chat and get to know more about their cars. However, we are kind of sure these Volkswagen drivers in the video below won't be friends anytime soon... Uploaded on ROADS.sg, we can see a Volkswagen Golf coming from the opposite direction before colliding straight on with the camera car (a Volkswagen Jetta). The accident happened on the morning of 22nd of April at the PIE interchange between Jurong Town Hall Road and Bukit Batok Road. There were no reports as of press time of what caused the Golf owner to drive into the opposite lane. We hope he did not faint or suffer a heart attack, causing him to lose control of his car. We did noticed the Scirocco (yes, another Volkswagen) moving away from danger as the Golf came closer. Good reflexes dude. Maybe if they stayed at home, such things won't have happened... videoplayback.mp4
