New Civic Type R
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.
ALWAYS PUSH FOR BETTER
Our reputation has been built on our engineering excellence and technical innovation. We love to challenge, to question, always pushing for better, never standing still. The new Civic Type R is the embodiment of everything we have learnt and our ambitions for the future. It has been designed from the ground up, each component created and tested with the purpose of giving you the most exhilarating drive. The result is a car that truly excites, a car that can justifiably be called Type R.
A 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.
THE TYPE R EXPERIENCE
Type R is synonymous with the thrill of driving, engineered to provide you with a true feeling of connection with the car and the road. We examined every detail from the car’s dynamics to the driving position, to ensure your driving experience is all consuming and exhilarating.
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 0-100km/h in 5.8 seconds and achieve 272km/h top speed (where conditions allow).
All this power is fed through a smooth and precise six speed manual gearbox which is optimised by a rev match control system to ensure slick, intuitive gear changes. The final drive is transmitted through an exceptionally responsive helical limited-slip differential to further enhance the performance character.
The ultimate performance test is of course on the track. Not any track, but the iconic Nurburgring, where we pushed the new Type R to the limit. It responded with distinction, slicing almost 7 seconds from its predecessor’s time.
UNIQUELY TYPE R
The purposeful exterior of the Type R is matched only by its dramatic cockpit, a place designed to make your heart beat faster, even before you press the engine start button.
Its motorsport inspired interior has everything you need just where you need it, with clear, easy to read gauges, alloy gear shift knob and a Type R plaque showing your car’s individual serial number.
MAKE IT YOURS
We have created a range of colours that complement every striking curve and angle of the Type R’s bodywork and match its race-bred heritage. Make a bold statement with colour, make it yours.
