Furthermore, reports also mentioned that the upcoming April 6 debut will happen through a video to be posted on the official Youtube account of Honda. It is quite intriguing to note that the debut will transpire via video clip and not through the usual grand launch on an auto show.

I think it had over 10,000 individual visitors in one week, which actually superseded any other model we’ve had.” He further added, “All we had there was some pre-registration information and a lot of our dealers are holding orders, and of course we haven’t given them any indication on price or anything yet, but it think it shows the ground swell of people who had a historical interest in the car and an interest in this car coming.”

“Certainly wherever we can add more sportiness to our range we would do that. In the short term its Type R and NSX, but even if we can add more sportiness – like the RS Civic is an example of that – you know it’s not an out-and-out sports car but we are trying to add more sportiness. And wherever those opportunities arise, we will certainly chase them,” the Honda Australia executive said.

#HondaOdyssey #HondaCivic – 2018 Honda Odyssey Has Beaten Civic Type-R At Its Own Game : Thanks to X-Tomi Design, we now have the rendered conceptual Type-R version of the all-new Honda Odyssey. This design apparently takes some cues of inspiration from the Civic Type R, just as the name suggests.

Of course, this is patently ridiculous and may never see the light of day but it is still very exciting to see it in image. This model would definitely carve the Nurburgring lap record for the quickest minivan and may even revive the wilting market segment.

Aside that, it could also revoke the spirit of performance-oriented minivan concept of back in the day, like the Renault Espace F1 and Ford SHO-Star. But we can’t deny that there are good reasons why they never made it into production.

Thus, even though we now have a certified performance enthusiast, Takahiro Hachigo, making the shots over at Honda, this may be the nearest we’ll get to ever seeing such a model.

2017 Honda Civic Type-R: Goodbyes Are Hard

#Honda #HondaCivicTypeR – 2017 Honda Civic Type-R: Goodbyes Are Hard : Honda will be saying goodbye to the Civic Type R by terminating its production at the Swindon plant in the UK soon. However, it will be releasing a limited edition model locally prior to that.

CarScoops states that the Honda Civic Type R Black Edition will be arriving with a starting price of £32,300 ($39,394), based on the current GT grade.

The automaker will only be releasing 100 units of this model for Europe’s biggest right-hand drive market, so you’ll have to be quick to nab one.

Phil Webb, Honda’s UK chief, said that, “There are only going to be 2,500 of the current Civic Type Rs on UK roads, so the car is going to be pretty special as it is – but with the addition of this special limited run of 100 Black Editions to the product lineup, owners will have a real collector’s piece on their hands.”

The model is finished with black with red accents for its exterior which translates into its interior, as well. Power output remains the same as the standard model with the 2.0-liter direct-injected turbocharged VTEC petrol mill worth 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft torque.

2018 Honda Civic Type-R: Don’t Cry For Manual

#Honda #CivicTypeR – 2018 Honda Civic Type-R: Don’t Cry For Manual : Despite rumors circulating that the 2018 Honda Civic Type R would be coming with a CVT transmission as an option, it is something that is pretty much far from the truth.

Road & Track reported that they had found the root of the rumor. It was all thanks to the November 2016 issue of the British magazine Car where it featured the Type-R along with an interview with Mitsuru Kariya, the man behind the 10th gen Civic.

The report reads, “Doubtless power will continue to be transmitted by today’s magical six-speed manual gearbox, with its tightly packed ratios. There’s no indication of a dual-clutch gearbox for the Civic: the announced automated option is a CVT, although engineer Kariya hastily adds that he’s tried to head-off the typical rev-metal thrash by making the cooking engines tractable at low revs.”

This is not a confirmation as Honda is stating that the company already has a CVT for the car and it’s working to make it less CVT-like.

Thankfully, Honda has cleared up this rumor by confirming that the next Type-R will only be offering a six-speed manual transmission.
