2015 Honda Type R - Civic's latest version
|   Friday, September 13, 2013
The 2012 version of Honda Civic made its debut the famous Frankfurt Motor Show and has been launched as a vehicle especially created for Europe. One year later, several spy photos actually prove that Honda is definitely developing another version of the Honda civic: Type-R.

Very close to the Nürburgring, the technical center of Honda, a new concept car, that could have been the latest Type-R, has been spied and captured in several photos very valued by the Honda fans.


Of course, the first differences that could have been noticed are on the exterior. The new vehicle seems to have a bigger rear wing which was placed tight over the back window. A pair of even bigger exhaust pipes has been combined with a more profound front spoiler which actually has made us think that this is the first Civic Type-R to include such a characteristic.

Most likely, the final version that will get to be produced and sold will also include a deep front spoiler, a lot larger and wider wheels, some sportier types of seats and an improved bumper with diffuser.

There have been a couple of rumors that actually states that the upcoming Civic type R is going to be suitable for those customers more track orientated. According to these, the car manufacturer might aim the attention at the chassis improvement and the overall car's handling. Also, Honda will definitely increase the power up to 220 or 230 hp, at least.

Increasing the horsepower is actually a way to follow the current market's trends as almost all the famous car manufacturers keep on releasing stronger and more powerful cars with economical fuel consumption. Honda has indeed been one of those famous brands that has always been keeping up with the latest auto trends, improving and innovating the models each season.

This is why we expect a lot from the 2015 Honda Civic Type R! Some have already expressed their expectations that the new vehicle would actually be able to reach up to 300 hp, a very optimistic point of view.

On the other hand, at the great event of this fall- the Frankfurt Auto Show – Honda has taken the chance to confirm a couple of details regarding the latest Civic Type R. Among the confirmations, the company has stated that the vehicle will feature a turbocharged 2 liter engine, direct injected which will indeed be able to reach at least 280 hp. So, just a tiny difference between the expected 300 and what Honda has publically confirmed.

A nice surprise from Honda at the Frankfurt Auto Show was the teasing video released in which the main character was, of course, the Civic Tyoe R rolling around the Nürburgring plant. According to the reaction of the public, we can assume that the new model is eagerly expected, mostly by those who already have a Honda, in order to continue the tradition.

Honda has also stated that this vehicle is designed in such a way as to evolve into the fastest front wheel drive on the Nürburgring circuit. Although there are two more years until the release of the vehicle, the testing on-track has begun.
