Honda Civic Type R Teased In Video As It Laps Suzuka

The newest teaser video for the brand new Honda Civic Type R exhibits the upcoming efficiency car’s growth on the Suzuka Circuit in Japan. The mannequin can be on show on the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, however there isn’t any indication that the automaker is definitely revealing something new in regards to the much-anticipated machine.

Thematically, the video tries to point out how severely Honda is taking the brand new Civic Type R’s growth. In the transient clip, the automaker exhibits the automotive doing circuits across the course, after which returning to the storage for recent tires and different tweaks. Then, the driving force heads again onto the monitor for extra testing. By the tip, it is night time, and the crew remains to be at work.

Unfortunately, the video would not present something particularly new about Civic Type R. There are a number of closeups of the automotive, however it continues to put on a pink, black, and white camouflage sample that features silhouettes of the car. Details embrace the R emblem for the badge within the middle of the grille and Brembo brake calipers.

While we’re pretty sure {that a} 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder remains to be beneath the hood, the engine’s output stays a thriller. The model within the present Civic Type R has 306 hp (228 kW), and the rumor is that this one has greater than that. Some hypothesis places the determine at 400 hp (298 kW), however that appears too excessive to be plausible to us.

A six-speed guide is allegedly the one gearbox possibility.

At a number of factors on this video, the current-gen Civic Type R is seen within the background. Its presence suggests the event crew needs to make certain that the brand new mannequin is best than the earlier one round Suzuka.

A debut date for the brand new Civic Type R remains to be a thriller. We anticipate a full premiere throughout the first half of 2022.
