Honda's Hot Hatch Is Back - Civic Type-R Spyshots

Here are the latest spyshots of the 2014/15 Civic Type-R, and it looks like the car is to be powered by a turbo for the first time.

This is possibly to improve on emissions which ultimately led to the previous models being chopped, Powering the car is a bit of a mystery but we can assure you that Honda mean business with a 300hp+ serious hatch which will be powered by a new 2.2 liter engine.

Honda bosses have previously said on record that they aim to beat Nurburgring lap record for a front-wheel drive car,it will have to knock off a lap of the Nordschleife ‘in under 8:08 minutes. That’s the mark set by the current record holder the Renault Megane 265.

Even though this is an early camouflaged prototype you can see they are hiding some of the shape around its flared stance, a new set of quad exhaust pipes and Brembo brake’s.

It remains unclear when Honda will offer a first look at the new model without all its camouflage, but with the Tokyo Motor Show on again this year, we could see a concept appear very soon…
