Images reveled ahead of Paris show this October of the New Type-R, where the concept will make it debut at the show.
One thing you will notice about the New Honda Civic Type-R is the shape, well developers have address the styling of the car in an attempt to broaden the appeal of heir customers who love a hot hatch with a more subtle design, rather than the current models extreme look. The most obvious change will be the deletion of the rear wing, while a softer front bumper and back diffuser will also come in.
‘Current performance figures of 306bhp and 400Nm of torque are expected to increase to around 340bhp and 450Nm. The official 0-62mph time could drop to around five seconds – seven-tenths of a second quicker than today’s model’
The body shape and size will change, with around 30mm wider, 20mm lower and 130mm longer than the current Type-R and this will be built at the Honda facility in Swindon along with the standard hatchback that is coming out next year.
