The Type R build on the sleek and sporty silhouette of the recently revealed Honda Civic e:HEV. The Type R has a much sportier look given by its lower and wider stance which elevates driving performance. The squat form is enhanced through wheel arches that flare out
over lightweight 19-inch matte black alloy wheels, shod with bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.
The exterior design is not unified and uncluttered as can be seen in the front and rear bumpers as well as beautifully integrated features such as the rear doors and arches which have been tailor-made for the Type R and add aerodynamic benefits.
The bold lower grille of the front bumper maximises airflow performance to the engine and works in line with the new subtle bonnet vent which increases the airflow to the engine.
Other design details that help with the aerodynamic performance are the large aperture vents behind the front wheels and a new, larger rear diffuser that is constructed directly into the floor.
The dramatic new rear spoiler design further adds to the downforce generation and has been angled to reduce air resistance. It is mounted on die-cast aluminium mounts. The rear wing is lower but wider which enhances the new roofline and wider stance.
Paint options include the historic Championship White revered by Honda Type R enthusiasts, additionally, you will have the option of solid Rallye Red, as well as Racing Blue, Crystal Black and Sonic Grey Pearls.
