2018 Honda Civic Type R spied on the Nurburgring
2018 Honda Civic Type R spied
The French venue is expected to host the debut of the 2017 Honda Civic in hatchback form, which has been previewed by a concept car at the Geneva Motor Show. Be that as it may, the Civic X variation we’re looking forward to the most is the 2018 Honda Civic Type R.
Our spy photographers got up close and personal with it on the Nurburgring in the past, but now we have video evidence that the all-new Civic Type R goes like a bat out of hell. Sorry for that, I hate Meat Loaf too.
Coming courtesy of YouTube channel Nordschleife-Video, the 25-second clip below features the 2018 Honda Civic Type R beating its VTEC Turbo heart out in full attack mode. The front-wheel-drive blunderbuss is expected to get the same 2.0-liter four-banger as the current model. Is isn’t known if we’re supposed to expect more than 310 PS and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft), but don’t forget that the Civic X is a tad lighter than its predecessor.
As you can see from the stills captured from the video, the 2018 Honda Civic Type R plays its aerodynamics card well. The extremely aggressive bumper, the in-your-face lip spoiler, the hood scoop, the gills right next the front wheel arches, the over-the-top rear spoiler, and the three-exit exhaust system, just about everything about the Civic Type R oozes “Get out of my way, mortal… or else face the wrath of VTEC!”
