Paris 2016: New Honda Civic Type R Prototype Makes Debut

The all-new Honda Civic Type R Prototype made its global debut yesterday at the 2016 Paris Auto Show, giving us a preview of the next-generation Civic Type R that will be officially unveiled in 2017.

This show car will make its first appearance in North America at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

“For the first time ever in America, Honda fans and enthusiasts will have access to the ultimate in Civic performance in the form of the new Type R,” exclaimed Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc.

Based on the low and wide proportions of the freshly released Honda Civic Hatchback, the radical new and track-ready Civic Type R Prototype is enhanced by muscular body styling and modifications to aid aerodynamic performance. Exterior highlights include a highly reflective, finely-grained brushed aluminum-effect finish, a carbon fibre front splitter, a new intake on the hood, smoked lenses for the LED headlights, indicators and side indicator repeater lights, carbon fibre side skirts, 20” piano black alloy wheels with red accents, a beefy carbon fibre rear diffuser, and three fully functional tailpipes flanked by a pair of directional strakes. Oh, and let’s not forget the striking rear wing spoiler.

Powertrain details and other specs will be revealed at a later date.
