Default 2015 Honda Civic Type R to be the 'most extreme yet' [video]


Quote:
Goes on sale next year

Honda is gearing up for the launch of the 2015 Civic Type R by releasing a new teaser campaign that will attempt to build hype for the upcoming model.

While the video only shows the concept, Honda says the production model will have "bold and aggressive styling reflecting the strong performance characteristics for which the marque is renowned." Honda UK's Head of Marketing, Olivia Dunn, went on to say "The new Type R promises to be the most extreme yet, it's born from racing and it pushes the boundaries. This new campaign encompasses this spirit perfectly, with Disruption the ideal curtain raiser in setting the energy and adrenaline levels very high."

As we have previously reported, the Civic Type R will go on sale next year and Honda has already confirmed it will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that develops at least 280 HP (206 kW)

Click here to view more photos

Available with 1.6 i-DTEC diesel or 1.8 i-VTEC engines

Honda has introduced the Civic Black Edition in UK, following the launch of similar versions of the CR-V and Jazz.

The five-door hatchback adopts a sinister look with an all-black treatment and some glossy elements for an extra touch. Black was also used for the side skirts and exterior mirror housings while the roof-mounted spoiler has a glossy black finish. There's also an aluminum "Black Edition" logo, a glossy black fuel lid cover and black alloy wheels.

Customers can get the special edition Civic with a 1.6 i-DTEC diesel engine delivering 120 PS (88 kW) and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) or with a 1.8 i-VTEC rated at 142 PS (104 kW) and 174 Nm (128 lb-ft).

Honda is offering the Civic Black Edition in UK from 249 GBP / month with three year's 0 percent APR and 500 GBP deposit contribution. Special offers for the regular Civic and Civic Tourer are also available, along with Black Editions of the CR-V and Jazz.

Default Is This the Production 2015 Honda Civic Type R?

Click the image to open in full size.

Our Croatian friend Luka C emailed us these two shots of what we believe could be the production version of the new 2015 Honda Civic Type R.

"Here are two pictures of new Honda Civic Type R!" said Luka. "[The] car was seen in the Croatian city of Rijeka while shooting promotional videos and photos".

Itís not a lot to go by, but comparing these pictures to the most recent Civic Type R Concept seen at this year's Geneva Motor Show, this sample appears to be missing the study's steroidal wheel arches and front and rear fender air slits, while keeping the massive rear wing and an altered version of the rear diffuser.

Obviously, we'll need to get a better and closer look at the car to be sure, but at a first glance, it does look like it may be the production version that will go on sale in Europe next year.

Honda has already confirmed that the new Type R will debut a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four VTEC engine with over 280-horses driving the front wheels.

Default New Photos of 2015 Honda Civic Type R; Keeps the Wing, Drops Wild Fenders

The same "POW3 ROF" license-plated 2015 Honda Civic Type R that one of our readers saw in Croatia was also spotted in the neighboring country of Slovenia.

These new photos, courtesy of our Japanese car-loving friends at FarmofMinds, give us a better view of the car, including the front end.

The big question is whether the car we see here is the final production model or a development prototype, as it lacks the LED headlamps of the study, not to mention the bloated fenders, grounds kit and vented bumpers that made the concept look like it had just came out of a pit stop.

It still has that gigantic airplane wing at the rear with more LED lights than a Griswold Christmas, and the aggressive diffuser housing a pair of pipes on either corner.

Until we learn more about this tester, let us remind you that the production car expected next year will debut a new 2.0-liter turbo'd four from Honda churning out "more than 280hp", according to the Japanese firm's CEO.
