Default 2018 Honda Civic Type R Prototype Offers First Look at US-Bound Model



Quote:
The new Civic Type R is getting closer to launching in North America and Honda is teasing us once again with a new prototype.

This fresh prototype debuted alongside the new Honda Civic Hatchback at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. This is likely very close to the version that will come to the United States next year as a 2018 modelyear vehicle.

As can be expected, a body kit makes the new Civic Type R look plenty aggressive with larger fenders and air intakes. A large rear wing, a carbon fiber diffuser, and three-port centrally mounted exhaustsetup can be found out back.

Honda didnít offer any specifics on the powertrain, though itís already known that the car will use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. In the current Type R, this motor makes 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, numbers that are expected to be improved upon before the next Type R launches.

A six-speed manual and front-wheel drive are surely going to come standard with this car, while its brakes, steering, suspension, and tires will all be upgraded compared to the normal variant. This prototype sports bright red Brembos, which many are hoping will carry over to the production model.

The satin paint wonít make it to the production car, but North Americans will be able to buy this Type R before Europeans.

I think the consensus is that it will be around $35k. Doubt it will be much more than that given that the 305HP AWD STI starts at $35k

It will depend on the pound to dollar exchange rate to if the pound drops much farther it could cost >$40k.

Keep in mind this built in Swindon, England

I'm saving as much as I can, I am buying one of these.

Honda's a global company though, they're usually hedged pretty well on production costs.

not to mention, the brakes, transmission, wheels, tires, engine, shocks/springs, interior and probably the seats won't be coming from england anyway

That's not usually how it works. Poor exchange rates affect the profitability of the business and don't typically affect the price of the product in a separate market.

If that were the case, Honda wouldn't be able to sell vehicles in other markets. The competitive market drives the regional costs far more than currency exchange rates

Looks neat, that price tag is going to be a real problem though. Its up there with evo's sti's mustang's camaro's and challengers price tags.

If that was 10k less, it would be a slam dunk.

Well sure, everyone wants a 300HP car for $25k but that's not realistic.

$25k would be a civic si or Toyota 86
