at the Geneva Motor Show, Honda revealed its Civic Type R Concept model. This
model has been described by the design team as a 'racing car for the road'
rather than a high performance version of a road car. Prototype testing of the
car was done at the famous Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany.
The shape and
angle of the stand-out rear spoiler, for example, has been designed to provide
additional downforce, as a direct response to information gained through track
testing. Additionally, the upper and lower front grilles have been enlarged and
air outlets on the bonnet provide cooling for the high-output engine.
and rear fenders have been widened to accommodate 20-inch tyres and air outlets
are integrated to optimise airflow. When combined, these features deliver
maximum cooling, greater grip and ultimately, optimum performance.
meanwhile, has confirmed that the forthcoming new Type R will be the first
model in Europe to feature one of its brand new VTEC TURBO engines from the
Earth Dreams Technology range. The two-litre, direct injection, four-cylinder
turbo is expected to deliver output of at least 276bhp and will be Euro 6
