On 12th February 2014, Honda revealed the lineup of its new models that will make their worldwide debut at 2014 Geneva Motor Show including its new Honda Civic Type R Concept. Other members of the lineup are Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) concept, 2014 Civic World Touring Car championship race car and Powertrain layout of the new NSX. The most anticipated models by Honda will be its Civic Type R race car with sophisticated and head turning styling tweaks and future based technological features. The production version of the car is expected to hit the roads in 2015. The design team of this car is dubbed as “Racing car for the road” and the car has strong and expressive styling tweaks represent the same strong performance characteristics for which Type R is renowned.
The car will feature a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that will able to deliver about 280 horsepower and the power will be sent to the front wheels via a six speed gearbox. The 2014 Geneva Motor Show will be held in March and the media days will take place on March 4 and 5. Most of the features and styling tweaks have not been disclosed yet and people are a little confused whether Civic Type R will be a real concept and surprise or it will be like the other “regular” cars with which Japanese Automaker use to connect “Concept” word with all under production models as a habit. Well, we just have to wait two weeks to enjoy the grand auto show of 2014 at Geneva. Like previous Type R models, we can expect a class leading precession inside and out with the use of materials taken from top shelves. The exact release date, pricing info and other information have not been revealed yet.
