The Volkswagen is at this year’s Geneva Motor Show unveiled production version of the Golf GTI (in versions with 220 hp and 230 hp). Honda was then announced that their new Civic Type R will be stronger than the Golf GTI and it will dispose of minimum 265 hp. That was then, in the meantime, there were rumors that the new 2015 Honda Civic Type R will in fact have 300 hp (probably a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit).
Also very interesting is the announcement from Honda that their main goal is that the new 2015 Civic Type R become the fastest car with front-wheel drive on the Nurburgring (which means that it must be faster than the Renault Megane RS Trophy with a time 8:07.90 minutes), and that the its weight should be less than 1200 kg. In addition to aggressive exterior, the new Civic Type-R will feature a sports interior, modified suspension, improved steering, stronger braking system and sports exhaust system.
The 2015 Honda Civic Type R will be offered only in the 5-door version, a premier concept expected at the Geneva Motor Show in March in 2014. year. Definitely,the release date of the production model should be late in 2014., while sales should start in early 2015.
