Report: Honda Civic Type R Concept hits the ground running ahead of Geneva debut
We've seen it teased, caught it testing, hell, we've even driven the thing, but until just now, we hadn't been privy to the visual drama that is the all-new Honda Civic Type R Concept. Thankfully, the day before the start of the Geneva Motor Show is about as leaky as Robert Redford's sailboat.
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.Honda Civic Type R Concept hits the ground running ahead of Geneva debut originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 03 Mar 2014 17:59:00 EST.
