The 2.0-litre Direct Injection VTEC TURBO propels the Civic Type R to an astonishing top whack of 270 km/h
Honda announced earlier that the hot Type R Civic is making its global debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Meanwhile - to keep the heat hotter Honda has teased few production specs pictures of the Civic Type R! The vehicle will carry heavy inspirations from the two Type R concept that Honda showcased earlier. The Type R will also introduce the Honda’s debutant VTEC Turbo engine with it. Sadly, we have to wait for couple of weeks for it, since 2015 Geneva Motor Show is in the first week of March!
Performance focused Aerodynamics
Honda says the Civic Type R’s underside is completely flat and with the help of wide front splitter, deep side skirts and rear diffuser - it generates optimal downforce. Furthermore, the meaner rear spoiler - apart from adding the hotness in the Type R also delivers powerful additional downforce. The front bumper has been shaped specifically to inhibit air turbulence around the front wheels, cutting drag and enhancing high-speed stability. Moreover, it features enlarged upper and lower grilles in the front for better cooling of that VTEC Turbo, the front fenders also sport air intakes to aid cooling further!
Engine and Braking
Honda did not reveal the specs of the Civic Type R but the 2.0-liter VTEC Turbo is a power house. Honda says that the Type R features bespoke high performance Brembo brake package. The front wheel features four-piston calipers with 350 mm drilled discs. The Type R rides on 19-inch radials.
