    New Honda Civic Type-R – first pics

    honda_type_r38. Honda's new 300bhp hot hatch begins testing at the NürburgringThe new Honda Civic Type R has been spied testing for the first time. This Civic mule was caught lapping the Nürburgring, a circuit that’s going to play a key role in the development of Honda’s new hot hatch.
    Honda has already confirmed the Type-R for production in 2015, and bosses have set it the target of taking the lap record at the Nürburgring for a front-wheel-drive production car. The record is currently 8min7.97sec, which is held by the Renaultsport Mégane 265.
    Our spy photographer also caught the new Civic Type-R in a convoy near the Nürburgring with a current Vauxhall Astra VXR and a previous-generation Ford Focus RS, suggesting these are the cars Honda is benchmarking its new hot hatch against.
    Company officials revealed to Autocar at the Geneva motor show that the new Civic Type-R would get as much as 300bhp, with power set to come from a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine. Know-how gleaned from the Honda Civic that competes in the World Touring Car Championship, complete with a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine, will influence the new Civic Type-R road car.
    The new Civic Type-R is being designed and developed in Europe, with Honda’s Swindon technical base playing a key role in this.
    The spy images reveal a series of changes for the Civic Type-R over the humble five-door Civic hatchback on which it’s based. These include a lowered chassis, larger alloys with low-profile tyres, beefed-up brakes, quad exhausts, a bodykit, and a large fixed rear wing.

    Re: New Civic Tourer at Frankfurt Motor Show

    Quad exhausts seem a bit too much but sound promising.
    wouldn't mind taking it for a spin.

    I loved the EP3, FN2 was my least favourite..

    At the risk of derailing this thread further, Audi Express updated their Civic Type-R article:
    So, even if it is built in Swindon, it won't be as bad as the FN2?

    Japan may be developing and testing , however when the blueprints come over to Swindon. They will approach european vendors to make parts for , Japanese parts will be very limited. Then we all know how good swindon manufacturing practices are when they assemble cars..:Rolf:

    European parts are not where remotely close to Japanese vendors coupled with poor manufacturing practices the car already got issues from day one.

    if you want to compare quality get a good example of a FN2 and a FD2 and compare your eyes will pick up how superior the FD2 is.
