Honda fans protest as 2015 Civic Type- R Concept bipasses North America
The “R” is for race and Honda engineering and development describes the Civic Type-R as a “ race car for the street.” Unfortunately for North America, Honda’s largest automotive market with 1.4 million cars and light trucks sold in 2013, will most likely never witness a dealership delivery of a 2015 Type-R.
Much has been written about the car since Honda Motor Company’s promise to return the much revered Civic Type-R to production. As reported by Torque News in November, the development of the “ Earth Dreams” 2.0 Liter turbocharged I.D. VTEC 4 cylinder engine has paved the way to the presentation of a Civic Type-R Concept at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show.
We find it interesting that Honda has released a new conceptual drawing for a vehicle that’s been viewed testing in time trials. While the drawing pictured at the top of this article is not identical to the flat black “Earth Dreams” Type-R lapping Nurburgring, they’re very similar. None the less we like the concept drawing.
