SEMA 2016: Honda Civic Type R Prototype to Make North American Debut

Following its world premiere at the 2016 Paris Auto Show earlier this fall, the all-new 2017 Honda Civic Type R prototype will make its North American debut at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week, giving us a preview of the next-generation Civic Type R that will be officially unveiled next year.

Based on the low and wide proportions of the freshly released 2017 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.

The Civic Type R prototype headlines Honda’s “Civicpalooza” display at SEMA featuring more than nine tuned, accessorized, and custom-built Civic Sedans, Coupes, and Hatchbacks, not the least of which is the 600-horsepower Civic Red Bull Global Rallycross race car that can sprint from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in just 1.9 seconds and hit 70’ table-top jumps.
