Honda Civic Type R Concept
Honda Design has released this picture that shows us the first look of the Civic Type R concept that will make its debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The concept is said to be close to be very close in looks to that of the forthcoming Honda Civic Type R, which is the successor to one of the industry's best loved hot hatchbacks.
No details have been revealed but Honda has been publicly testing Type R mules around the Tochigi test track and the Nürburgring. One thing is certain, Honda is determined to make the next generation Type R the best hot hatchback money can buy by ensuring that it smashes the 8min 7.97sec production lap record for a front wheel drive car around the Nürburgring track currently held by the Renault Megane 265 Trophy.
To achieve this target the car will be armed with a 2.0-Liter turbocharged engine producing 276 horsepower, matched with an aggressive aero package. Expect more information to be revealed on the 4th of March once the Geneva Motor Show commences.
