Next Honda Civic Type R Prototype Spied Near Nürburgring

2013 Honda Civic Type R prototype

Next Honda Civic Type-R prototype was spotted earlier today testing near Honda’s technical center at the Nürburgring. The prototypes spotted are early chassis testing mules, wearing a huge rear spoiler.

As the current Civis is only available as a five-door version and there are no plans for a three-door version, it means new Type-R will be based on the five-foor model.

The new Civic Type-R will have special bumper, wheels, spoilers and seats in addition to retuned suspension.

Power is expected to come from a new turbocharged 1.6 or 2.0 litre unit with well over 210 horsepower. Prices are expected to start from around £23,000.

We expect to see more prototypes with more Type R exterior parts in the near future. Stay with us for more details!

    We need the 3 door version badly! the 5-door design is just not hot and sporty enough to be called Type R.
