Honda Civic Type R Concept hits the ground running ahead of Geneva debut
We'll get the full details tomorrow – which may even include a discourse on Honda's 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that will make upwards of 280 horsepower and propel the car to Nürburgring-record-braking velocities. After all, the "Concept" portion of most Honda concept cars is generally lip-service only.
In fact, save for those blacked out windows and, perhaps, a couple millimeters of ride height and those extra-aggro wheels, we pretty much expect the production Type R to look like the beast you see here. Certainly the swooping form and 'roided wheel arches suit the boy-racer persona of the Civic very well; we wouldn't even put it past Honda's funky European arm to sell the final product with some version of that bi-plane wing.
At any rate, we'll only have to wait another day or so before the Civic Type R Concept is revealed in full, and in the metal. Stay tuned to our Geneva coverage so you don't miss the (leaky) boat.
