Honda has started the countdown for their most waited sport little fella – the new Civic Type-R which will make its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show, on 3rd March.
Just a few weeks left until we will see the final version of the hot hatch, so to kindle the fire in us, the Japanese constructor launched this morning a set of photos with some of the design enhancements that will feature the little one.
The front bumper was reshaped to inhibit air turbulence around the front wheel, cutting drag and enhancing high-speed stability, and was completed by a wide splitter and deep side skirts, all with the purpose to manage airflow and reduce lift. Also, enlarged upper and lower grilles, vents above the wheels on the front quarter panels and trailing edges on the front wheels and some other details more were specially added to provide greater cooling and ventilation for the Turbo VTEC engine – that “little” 2.0 l Turbo VTEC 280 HP one.
New Brembo brake kit was specially designed for the Civic Type-R, four-piston calipers and 350 mm drilled discs, all these completing the image of the newly-designed 19″ alloy wheels.
So I will start the countdown…
