RACE CAR FOR THE ROAD... FUNCTION DICTATES FORM
Designed and engineered to be a "Race car for the road" - this is the most extreme Type-R ever built, with blistering performance and thrilling dynamics that set new standards in the segment.
The Civic Type R fuses provocative design with engineering perfection. This is the philosophy of our iconic car. The Civic Type R is a machine built for one thing, and one thing alone: performance. After five years in development, we’ve finally built the latest Honda to bear the infamous ‘Type R’ badge. Expect white knuckles – it’s already claimed the title as the world's fastest front-wheel drive production car around the Nurburgring.
The Type R has always been a special marque in the Honda stable. Inspired by our Formula One success, in 1992 we built the very first Type R: the NSX-R. The success of that car went on to spawn an entire range of sports-tuned Hondas. Only four Hondas have ever been adorned with the infamous red ‘Type R’ badge – the NSX, Accord, Integra, and the Civic. Each one pushed the boundaries of performance. And this latest thoroughbred is the most extreme in 22 years of these extraordinary machines.
