Strangely, Honda just debuted the Honda Civic Type R Pickup Truck concept, a clearly one-off, hacked-away version of its Big Wing-Having, 316 horsepower, front-wheel drive rocket. Now it has a practical bed for storing boxes of overnighted parts from Japan. The vehicle is pretty pointless, and by “pretty pointless,” I…
The 306 horsepower Honda Civic Type R was one of the most eagerly anticipated new cars in years. It’s billed as the ultimate front-wheel-drive track weapon, but is it really? This team is building a Type R into a race car to find out.
The current road-going Honda Civic Type R looks like teenage anger bottled up into a car body, leaving people split on how they feel about its looks. But it didn’t take a new generation for the Type R to put on some adult clothes. It just took making it into a race car.
No matter how you feel about the new Honda Civic Type R, you have to admit its styling is a bit... complicated. There are lines going every which way, making the car busy to look at and difficult to wrap. But that doesn’t stop people from wanting wraps, and one California shop documented the entire process.
A Texas woman says she got an unwanted surprise after putting a deposit down for a new Honda Civic Type R, as the dealership allegedly regrets that they charged her no markup on the hot new car. Now she says the dealership wants to use it as a show car for three months before she can take delivery. [Update: The…
The legendary Civic Type R is finally in America, and while it might not be the same car we drove in Gran Turismo, it’s pretty awesome. Honda is reportedly planning even more variants including a harder one, a softer one, and maybe one that will send power to all four wheels.
If you thought the $33,900 base price for the 2018 Honda Civic Type R was a bit steep for a front-wheel drive hot hatch, you ain’t seen nothing yet. That’s because some dealers aren’t going to let the limited-production Hondas go for anything less than $15,000 over MSRP. And I spoke with one dealer who’s charging an…
Brace yourselves, the Honda Civic Type R is coming. The once forbidden fruit will brave its way across the ocean so that we in the Land of the Free may finally enjoy the ultimate Honda hoon-machine. With an estimated price around $35,000, it won’t be too bad when the payments kick in, yo—if you can find one.
When it comes to putting power down on a wet track, the more grip, the better. Car Throttle tested the Civic Type R, BMW M140i and Ford Focus RS on a wet track to see if the drive wheels really matter on a slick surface.
Having owned three different generations of the Honda Civic Si, two S2000s, and one Integra Type-R, you could say I have some passion for Honda’s cars. Like everyone with a pulse and a passion for cars, I was bummed Honda didn’t ship the Civic Type-R stateside, and always wanted to drive one. Each Gran Turismo version…
I just got back from a trip to Germany, where I had the pleasure of hooning the crap out of a European-spec Honda Civic Type R, the ultimate forbidden fruit among America’s Honda fans. It was amazing, and I don’t think I’ll ever be the same.
Mugen is to Honda what your depressingly superior little brother is to you. No matter how awesome and successful you are as the older sibling, no matter how smart or how fast, he somehow shows up later and does it better and with more style. Yeah, the Mugen Civic Type R is pretty much like that.
It’s not an April Fools’ joke. I wouldn’t be writing about it if it was, because screw all those stupid attempts at corporate humor that come in fake press release form. Today at the New York Auto Show, Honda officially announced that America will get the high performance Civic we’ve always wanted — the Type-R.
When you've got a hatchback that puts out 310 horsepower and maybe obliterated a front-wheel drive Nürburgring record, how can you not take it racing? That's what Honda plans to do with the new 2016 Civic Type R. The updated car will replace its predecessor for the 2015 British Touring Car Championship season.
Could Honda really be kicking a new performance renaissance? The 2016 Acura NSX and this car, the new 2016 Honda Civic Type R, have me hoping that's the case. Before its official debut tomorrow at the Geneva Motor Show, here's more of the hatch that Honda is calling their most extreme Type R model ever.
Honda has promised that the new 276 horsepower (or more) Civic Type R will not only be the baddest hot hatch around, but also the most extreme Honda ever made. How fast will it go? Up to 167 MPH, the company announced today. As they say in Japan, "That's a spicy meatball!"
Okay, so it's not actually an EK9 wagon, although that would be really, really cool. This is in fact a marriage of two different Honda vehicles which share parts: a Civic and an Orthia. And despite this being JDM as hell, this actually isn't Japan. It's Hong Kong. Still totally badass. EK WAGON, GUYS. GET EXCITED.
Like everyone else who wants to see Honda give a damn about performance again, I'm pretty excited about the new Civic Type R, and I'm eager to see if it will come to America. Technically it already has; this photo was taken in Marysville, Ohio yesterday, home of one of their manufacturing plants.
Go home, Integra. Step aside, NSX. Your kids need picking up at soccer practice, Civic and Accord. Honda says their new 276 horsepower 2015 Civic Type R is so potent, so uncompromising in its performance, that it will trump every Type R car that came before it.
