Honda recently unveiled an all-new Civic Type R Prototype at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, previewing the first-ever Honda-badged Type R vehicle that will be coming to the U.S. The Civic Type R features a sleek and sporty hatchback design with wide, aggressive fascias, larger wheel arches, 20-inch piano black alloy wheels and a dramatic rear wing.
The production version will be unveiled by Honda next year, and will join the already released Civic Sedan, Coupe and Hatchback, along with the upcoming Civic Si. Honda will be showing the track-ready Civic Type R Prototype in the U.S. at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas from November 1-4.
“We promised the most ambitious, sportiest Civic lineup ever and we’re delivering on that promise with each new Civic,” said Jeff Conrad of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “For the first time ever in America, Honda fans and enthusiasts will have access to the ultimate in Civic performance in the form of the new Type R.”
As part of its aggressive character, the Civic Type R Prototype features a winged carbon fiber front splitter, Honda’s iconic red “H” badge found on all Type R models, an air scoop in the hood and smoked lenses for the LED headlights. The prototype is wrapped in a reflective brushed aluminum finish as well, which gives it a unique and sporty look.
The rear fascia includes a carbon fiber diffuser, three functional tailpipes, model-exclusive vortex generators and a large rear wing. The 20-inch alloy wheels with red accents are wrapped in 245-section high-performance tires for improved grip.
