Honda Civic Type R Concept II revealed with new details about the production model

Honda unveiled the Civic Type R concept earlier this year at the Geneva Motor Show.

Now ahead of Paris Motor Show, the Japanese automaker has released new images of the Civic Type R concept in a new luminous bright blue colour and some red decals.

Everything else looks to be identical to the concept shown in Geneva from the aggressive body kit, quad exhaust and big wheels.

However Honda did not just release new images of the hot hatch, but also released new details.

The new 2.0-litre turbocharged i-VTEC engine is said to produce more than 276bhp linked to slick-shifting six-speed manual. There will be also an all-new ‘+R’ mode for enhanced on-track driving thrills, and additional ‘steer axis’ system minimising torque steer for exceptional traction.

Honda likes to point out that the new hot hatch will be the most extreme Type R yet, signalling the start of a new performance era for the brand, offering unmatched performance compared to any previous Type R car, including performance-oriented versions of the Integra, Accord and even the iconic NSX.

One of the development goals for the new Civic Type R has been to set a new Nürburgring lap record for front wheel-drive cars, which from June belongs to Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy-R with a time of 7:54:36.

The all-new Civic Type R will built at Honda’s plant in Swindon, UK and arrive in dealerships during 2015.
