On February 27, Honda released three images of their Civic on their Facebook page, one of which was the production version of the all-new Civic Type R. This new production model will be launched on March 3 at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show and Honda has provided a preview of it ahead of its anticipated debut.
Honda has already elected to go with a direct-injected 2.0-liter inline 4-cylinder i-VTEC gasoline turbo engine for the new Civic Type R. The only details we know of at this time are that this engine produces 280ps of maximum output and is combined to a 6-speed manual transmission.
This new model features superior aerodynamic performance with a top speed thatâ€™s incomparable to its front wheel-drive competition at 270km/h.
The new Civic Type R was posted on Hondaâ€™s Polish Facebook page with a red exterior. The fog lamps prove that this is the production model as they are designed differently from its concept.
