Honda opens pre-order books for the new Civic Type R

Honda UK has just closed pre-order books for the upcoming new NSX hybrid supercar with over 100 customers having placed order since the vehicle was shown first at the North American Auto Show. When one door closes, usually another one opens in life.

In this case Honda has opened pre-order books for the upcoming Civic Type R, which we have only seen in concept form. The new Civic Type R will be launched next year and if you want to be one of the first behind the Type R steering wheel, you can now place an order with a £3,000 deposit at a local Honda dealer.

The all-new hot hatch will be the most extreme and high-performing Type R in the 22 year history of the red ‘H’ badge, signalling the start of a new performance era for the brand. The new Type R will mark the debut of the new ‘+R’ button, for example. Located to the side of the steering wheel, a press activates ‘+R’ mode for the most exhilarating driving experience. Engine responsiveness is heightened, with torque-mapping changed to a more aggressive and performance-focused setting. Steering becomes more responsive which, together with the new four-point Adaptive Damper System, delivers the ultimate handling experience.

The new 2.0-litre turbocharged i-VTEC engine is said to produce more than 276bhp linked to slick-shifting six-speed manual.
