Feast your eyes on the first set of, admittedly blurry, photos of the production-spec Honda Civic Type R.
The images of the new Honda Civic Type R have leaked on the internet, and it appears very little has changed compared to the concept shown at the 2016 Paris Motor Show and 2016 L.A. Auto Show. This will be the first Civic Type R that will ever be sold in the U.S., a moment Honda enthusiasts have been waiting decades for.
Unfortunately no details have been spilled, but the Civic Type R is expected to offer more power than the current model’s 306 horsepower figure. Under the hood will be a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder motor and in true Civic fashion, it will remain front-wheel drive.
The big question remains if the Japanese automaker will chase after the Nurburgring front-wheel-drive record, which was taken by the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S last year. Look for more details on the new Honda Civic Type R next week, as AutoGuide.com will be reporting live from the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
