Honda Civic Type R has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The brand new hot hatchback is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged i-VTEC engine producing 310 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The new Civic Type R gets adjustable dampers all around, mechanical limited-slip differential, Brembo brakes, sports seats and an equally sporty interior and exterior styling. Scroll down for the complete image gallery.
The all-new Honda Civic Type R has also been around the Nurburgring in 7 min 50 sec and the following video documents the quick lap completed in a pre-production Type R. It also means that the Honda is 4 sec quicker around the track than the fastest front-wheel drive car- Renault Megane 275 Trophy. Being a pre-production car, it lacked air-conditioning and audio systems along with the front passenger seat that was removed in order to save weight. A roll cage was fitted for safety.

Honda, perhaps does not plan to go global with the new Civic Type R. Yes, like the Ford Focus RS, which for the first time will be offered to US customers, it is highly unlikely that Honda would go the same way. That said, the Civic Type R will feature a 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine boosted with a turbocharger. Peak output could top 300 odd horsepower and slotting just under the uber-hot hatchbacks like the VW Golf R and the new Focus RS.
