This is the all-new Honda Civic Type-R that will hit this year’s Geneva Motor Show…sort of…[Not a valid template]
So far all we’ve been shown is the front bumper, the driver’s side alloy, the racey red instrument screen and – if you browse the below teaser clip – the now hallowed ‘+R’ button. People, we’re inching closer and closer to the unveil of the hot hatch macdaddy that Honda has been hanging over our heads since last year’s Paris Motor Show.
Details are still being kept under a tight leash, although we do know that under the bonnet will be a 2.0-litre direct injection VTEC TURBO capable of 270kph and producing ‘in excess of’ 275bhp, consequently making the 2015 incantation the most extreme Civic Type-R yet. We imagine then that the already radical styling as seen on the concept will remain appropriately batshit. For performance, the Type-R is equipped with a wide front splitter and deep side skirts for greater aerodynamacism, and a high performance Brembo brake package with some massive 350mm discs at the front. The 19-inch wheels you see above will be exclusive to the Honda Civic Type-R, which will be unveiled in Honda’s aptly optimistic Championship White.
