Well, looks that that was quick. Honda has recently dropped another teaser for the much-awaited Civic Type R. Remember this? It was mentioned that that particular Type R was undergoing a video shoot, and looks like now its clear what video is it.
Shot in Croatia earlier last month, the Civic Type R seems to have some rather blinding rear lights integrated into the spoiler. Besides that, the car follows much of the concept car’s design cues. The new Civic Type R will drop its famous high revving naturally aspirated inline-4 for a turbocharged engine. Power is expected to be in excess of 280 horses. Power is transferred to the front wheels via a 6 speed manual transmission.
Unlike previous Type R models, this new Civic Type R will have more electronic trickery to spice things up. One of the much touted feature of the new Civic Type R is the +R Sports Mode, when pressed, sharpens throttle response, damper stiffness and altered torque curve.
Honda is eyeing a Nurburgring record for its new Civic Type R, setting cars like the Renault Megane RS and the Nissan Pulsar Nismo in their sights. Do stay tuned closely to zerotohundred.com
