14 September 2006 — Motor Europe Ltd today the eagerly awaited new Civic R, the successor to a model whose blend of affordability, exhilarating characteristics and everyday usability in sales that exceeded all

There will be different of equipment available, ranging a fully equipped car to one that has the rear parcel shelf With these variants, the new Type R therefore looks set to itself to a whole new wave of and to repeat the cult success of the ‘CTR’ which exceeded all predictions. The new Civic Type R receive its international show in Paris during September and are expected to begin in 2007.

the outstanding performance credentials of its Honda saw little purpose in engine output. The new Type R continues to be powered by a naturally-aspirated 2.0 DOHC i-VTEC engine similar output, but reworked for refinement and responsiveness thanks to a new shaft and a drive-by-wire throttle. The 201 PS power output is now reached at rpm (previously 200 PS at 7,400 rpm).

While the headline performance are expected to be virtually identical to the 6.6 0-100 km/h time and 235 top speed of the Type R in its previous the engine enhancements mean the new car is responsive generally, while aerodynamics ensures the new car cuts the air more cleanly. Slightly gearing compensates for a small in kerb weight.

VTEC valve timing and VTC variable camshaft technology continue to the engine architecture. Its exhilarating, revving nature is retained, but the to high lift, long valve timing now takes at a lower 5,200 rpm, and all the way to the 8,000 rpm red line. There is a new indicator just to the right of the speedometer which is illuminated this rev range.

Widely praised for its ride and balance, the chassis of the Civic forms the basis for all 3-door and provides an ideal platform for a performance derivative. Building on the Type S suspension which is for sharper chassis dynamics to its sportier profile, the Type R those modifications on to the next Like the Type S, its rear is 20 mm wider than that of the model, but otherwise damper, and spring characteristics are all unique to R.

225/40 ZR18 tyres added grip, while the 15 mm in ride height further body roll. What’s the fuel tank’s central beneath the cabin floor the centre of gravity and the body’s moment. Firmer steering, a ratio and stiffer steering box in combination provide pin-sharp to steering wheel input.

The 5-door already offers one of the body structures in the C-segment; and the R’s body is further enhanced, a key role in the particularly responsive dynamics. Extra strengthening has introduced into the floor member just ahead of the fuel tank, around the front suspension mountings, the lower cross member ahead of engine bay provides rigidity. The overall result is a offering more predictable than the old model, with of responsiveness and stability that are of the best in class. At the same the damper settings deliver ride comfort in keeping the increased refinement of the new Type R.

The new Type R’s bold styling is assertive in its appearance. The aggressive body has a series of fully aerodynamic parts that with a 15 mm reduced ride – compared to 5-door and Type S – and standard seven-spoke 18” alloy are a clear indication of the car’s nature. The deep front incorporates a larger air intake as as triangular foglamps whose mirrors the large exhaust at the rear.

There’s a distinct body tailgate rear spoiler for downforce that splits the tailgate glass rather the raised glass profile on Civic 5-door and Type S

Other identifying features are discrete: Type R logos on the front brake callipers and the panel grille of the Civic S is replaced with a honeycomb and central red ‘H’ logo.

Step the stainless steel door inserts, complete with R’ logo, into the cabin, and there is no mistaking that is a car developed for driving excitement. seat occupants are gripped by seats with large Alcantara bolsters with red and red fabric seat cushions and Two distinct rear seats the same colour coordination.

The effective and strikingly stylish Link concept fascia to other Civic models features in the Type R, but with red dials set off by gun metallic switch on either side of the meter The driver grips a black, leather covered steering with red stitching and central ‘H’ while the matching gear knob with aluminium-finish has a boot with red stitching.

And, as a finishing touch and for exclusivity there is a plaque with the car’s unique number placed just of the gear lever.

For those who want added convenience and an specification, there will be a equipped version available. features include curtain SRS cruise control, fog lights, lights and wipers and dual air conditioning. A state-of-the-art Navigation with voice control as well as RDS traffic monitoring, is as an option.

Taking the Type R to its logical conclusion, a lighter Type R will be available. The of items such as the audio rear load cover, under cover and reduced insulation material brings down by 40 kg. This version the basis for receiving FIA Group A prepared parts. In addition, the Type R itself will be to FIA Group N and Group A as well as the Group R.

All the range of Type R and Type S, are to be exclusively alongside the Civic range at the Honda of the UK Manufacturing (HUM) in Swindon.
