honda releases civic type-r (press release)
Civic Type R Launches:
TOKYO, Japan - March 29, 2007– Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced the release of the all-new Civic Type R, a pure sports edition of the Civic with further enhanced driving performance. The new Civic Type R will go on sale throughout Japan on Friday, March 30.
This new Civic Type R was developed to make the driver feel at one with the car for the ultimate driving experience in all driving conditions, including on circuits.
The all-new Civic Type R comes equipped with a specially tuned 2.0-liter normally aspirated engine matched to a 6-speed manual transmission. A lighter, more rigid body shell, specially tuned suspension, 18-inch tires and large 17-inch front disc brakes contribute to the Civic Type R’s ability to push the performance envelope. Newly developed aerodynamic devices further enhance high-speed performance while giving the wide and low form a more aggressive look. Front bucket seats, a unique instrument panel and other performance accessories contribute to an easier and more responsive drive.
Type R models are specially tuned to take full advantage of the potential of the base model and provide a racing car-like driving feel. First offered on the NSX in 1992, the Type R range was extended to the Integra in 1995, and the Civic in 1997. This latest all-new Civic Type R is the distillation of 15 years of technological progress and the latest expression of Honda’s “Challenging Spirit.”
I like it a lot. Too bad it won't be coming here :(
Call me crazy, but that thing's gorgeous.
This thread is worthless without specs!
Wow...It's a FWD Evo! lol (I assumed it'll be FWD.....). Looks mean, especially in saloon form. Better than the hatchback in my opinion! :thumbs:
But what good is it if we don't get it? :drool:
It will likely use the same engine, just improved suspension & a large weight reduction (probably around 200lbs) and whatever else is stated there.
i saw one the other day, just not the saloon, the new 3 door hot hatch!
pretty nice, but i was thinking the same as cliffy!!!
