After releasing an awesome teaser image in the lead-up to the Geneva Motor Show 2014, the brand new Honda Civic Type R has been leaked before its debut. If you are a keen follower of Honda, you may be aware that late last year, prototypes were spotted testing on numerous occasions completely undisguised. However, if the new Honda Civic Type R Concept is anything to go by, Honda was keeping a few key styling traits to itself.
Visually, the new Honda Civic Type R is about aggressive as a hot hatch can be. At the front, it features the same standard design as the standard Honda Civic, however, includes brand new LED headlights, a black panel below the front grille as well as a large splitter stretching around to the front tyres. The car also features new sports wheels, new wing mirror caps and side skirts.
The most prominent change at the back of the concept compared to previous prototypes with it featuring a futuristic taillights design stretching along the massive rear wing. Additionally, the car features widened wheel arches up front and at the rear as well as an aggressive rear diffuser and quad exhaust pipes.
Official details about the engine have yet to be revealed, but it can be confirmed it is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged VTEC engine set to deliver around 280 hp and up to 300 hp. Impressively, the car will only be available as a six-speed manual.
