Coming to Paris with 276 horsepower.
After showing us its original concept of the upcoming 2015 Civic Type R hot-hatch at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, Honda is preparing to reveal the production model in Paris next month. Meanwhile, the company has updated the concept (though exterior updates are minor) and released new images of the Concept II. The Japanese Automaker says this model will "deliver unmatched performance compared to any previous Type R car," and that includes previous generations of the NSX.
Honda now says that the car's main attraction will be a '+R' button on the steering wheel. "The '+R' button brings out a more dynamic and athletic car for the driver, to set pulses racing. The difference in character is immense. The '+R' mode is extreme; the car is ideal for track use and will be appreciated by the genuine sports-driving enthusiast." The Civic Type R will be built in the UK, hitting European roads in 2015.
