DESIGNED FROM A DREAM
“I have always loved cars since I was a small child”.
“Our vision for the Civic Type R was manoeuvrability that the driver can put their complete confidence in; and it would make the driver feel like they could keep driving it forever.” It was a dream that came true – in the shape of a Type R. Created with high levels of comfort, unrivalled interior space and track-inspired styling to match its top performance.
Pulsating power, visceral performance.
Building on Honda’s heritage of developing high-performance cars, the Type R shares the same fundamentals as the new 10th generation Civic. Re-engineered from the ground up to deliver the most invigorating and exciting drive in the hot-hatch arena – both on the road and on the race track. Say hello to the most powerful, fastest accelerating, front-wheel-drive car we’ve ever built.
The new Civic Type R is a car only Honda could make. It reflects our unique thinking, our drive for constant reinvention, re-evaluation and relentless pursuit of better. Our desire to create the perfect sports machine for the road and the track is imprinted into its DNA and drawn into every curve of its body. It’s a car that has been built for the sheer thrill of driving, a car built with soul, a car that speaks to you the way few others can.
A RACE CAR FOR THE ROAD
Designed for the pursuit of performance, the muscular shape is as dramatic as it is functional. Every sculpted line and aerodynamic detail work together optimising airflow, boosting down-force and providing improved handling and high speed stability.
BORN TO PERFORM
Underneath the sculpted bonnet lies a two litre, four cylinder VTEC TURBO engine which develops a maximum power output of 320PS and 400Nm of torque. It’s no surprise to discover this gives the Type R the ability to sprint from 0-100kph in 5.8 seconds and achieve 270kph top speed.
UNCOMPROMISED INSIDE AND OUT
It may have a motorsport feel but it’s not lacking in equipment or comfort. From your race-inspired seat, you are surrounded by premium soft touch materials, climate control, cruise control, electronic parking brake and a new 7” touch-screen Honda CONNECT in-car audio and information system.
