Honda type arrrrrghhhh!
The wait is finally over, Honda is finally making another Civic Type R. Ah yes, the Type R; a thing of only legend here in the states. But in other, more civilized, countries the Type R has always been the light weight Goliath slayer of choice.
Honda made the Type R simply to be a fast car. It really doesn’t have anything else in mind. They used a platform that they already had, then stripped everything out and reinforced the chassis. What resulted was a car that did what it was supposed to, go around corners.
I’ve always been a fan of the Type R, until they went to a sedan platform. I think it should of always been a hatch back, both for size and weight reasons. Well this new Type R looks to bridge both the gaps here. It will be a (speculated) 300 hp, four door hatch back.
Hopefully we’ll get to see this car in the states, instead of a neutered Si version. But we can only hope.
