Honda Civic Type R Boasts 167 MPH Top Speed
#1
Honda is out to make a major statement next month in Switzerland.


The Japanese automaker has released a trio of teaser images that hint at the production Honda Civic Type R, which will make its official debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Powered by a 2.0-liter VTEC turbocharged four-cylinder engine, Honda says the Civic Type R will boast a top speed of 167 mph and will also be showcased in Championship White. For those that have been long time fans of the Type R nameplate, you’ll know that Championship White has always been the paint color associated with the models from the Integra to the NSX.


Honda still hasn’t confirmed power output from the new turbocharged engine, but did say the Civic Type R will receive unique 19-inch wheels along with Brembo brakes developer specifically for the car. To help enhance cooling, the design team focused on enlarged upper and lower grilles in the front bumper, while vents above the wheels on the front quarter panels as well as vents at the trailing edges of the front wheel arches will keep the powerplant nice and cool.

The Civic Type R makes its official debut early next month.

I'd be real tempted if there were a 4 door CTR. The hatch is pretty sweet though.

*edit*
Am I crazy or is it a 4 door hatch?!?
