Unsurprisingly, the 2015 Honda Civic Type R is proving exceptionally popular for the Japanese brand with confirmation that the sporty hot hatch has already sold out in the United Kingdom until February next year.
Discussing the unexpectedly high interest in the car, Honda UK boss Philip Crossman said “We knew it was a car with a following, but the interest it has generated inside and outside of the company has been phenomenal. It has dominated our thinking for the past few months, and it’s already playing a key role in building interest in our brand and telling the world that Honda is back where it belongs.”
As a reminder, the 2015 Honda Civic Type R uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine which is turbocharged and consequently delivers 306 hp. This means the car will launch itself from 0-96 km/h in a handsome 5.7-seconds. What’s even more impressive is the speed at which the Type R can be pushed to. This front-wheel-drive Japanese speed machine will not stop until 269 km/h!
