New Honda Civic Type R - Official Teaser - 1

Honda has teased its new upcoming Civic Type R days before its world premier at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Honda claims that the Civic Type will feature a host of eye-catching design enhancements that have been heavily influenced by extensive aerodynamic development and testing, both on computer and in the wind tunnel which provides the car with exceptional high speed stability and high levels of downforce.

Although Honda did not disclose the power output figures, the Civic Type R will come equipped with a 2.0 litre direct injection VTEC TURBO engine that would be capable of achieving a top speed of 270km/h (167mph)* unrivalled amongst its front wheel-drive competitors.

Here is the teaser video:

Other features include a wide front splitter and deep side skirts also manage airflow and reduce lift, while the front bumper has been shaped specifically to inhibit air turbulence around the front wheels, cutting drag and enhancing high-speed stability. A new, almost completely flat underside aids airflow under the vehicle and combines with a rear diffuser to optimise downforce – effectively ‘sucking’ the car onto the road.

Braking power is delivered by high performance Brembo brake package which is specifically developed for the car. At the front, four-piston calipers apply braking force to 350 mm drilled discs while new 19-inch alloy wheels complement the visual changes, filling the wheel arches and accommodating the larger brakes.

Speaking about the upcoming Civic Type R, Leon Brannan, Head of Car, Honda (UK) said, “We’ve already seen huge customer interest for this much anticipated and unique car with over 100 orders already in the bank. With the release of these new technical details I think we can expect many more.”

The Civic Type R will be unveiled at Geneva Motor Show in Championship White – a colour shared with successive generations of iconic Type R vehicles.
