Honda Civic Type R 2013 turbo

Posted: 06 Oct 2011 08:23 PM PDT

The next Honda Civic Type R will not only be the most powerful version of the time but will also be the first Honda turbo sport road. Unconfirmed reports from Japan say that even work with Mugen Honda to build the new Civic Type R.

The Honda Civic Type R has made ??a name thanks to VTEC aspirated engine, capable of reaching very high speeds, but to keep up with increasingly stringent anti-pollution standards, even the Japanese decided to use the turbo.

Instead of the 2.0-liter normally aspirated the new Type R should install a new 2.0 turbo engine, developed to meet the Euro 5 standards. The addition of the turbo will have more torque since low rpm, allowing you to have greater access to higher gears when you want to consume less. Apparently the system will also be integrated start-stop.

The power of the next Civic Type R should be about 210 hp, enough power for a 0-100 km / h in 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 240 km / h. The change will be a classic six-speed manual.


Based on the new Honda Civic views in Frankfurt, the future design of the Type R will keep the front headlights and thin LED daytime running lights, but there will be large front air intakes, front and rear spoilers, side skirts, rear diffuser . Internally, however, should be quite extreme, as previous models.

The new Civic Type R however, will be produced only in the five-door version (the new Civic five-door only) and will arrive in 2013.
