Honda has published a teaser for the most powerful Civic Type R Limited Edition

June 19, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The Japanese company showed a teaser of the fastest and most powerful Type R series model to date. This version of the car is intended for a racing track.

The first time we saw a Honda Civic performed by Type R Limited Edition back in February of this year, when Honda announced the most powerful version of its “hot” hatchback. Just a few days later, coronavirus (COVID-19) hit the world, and since then we have heard little about the new product. Today, Honda released a mysterious teaser that forces us to draw all kinds of conclusions.

A fifteen-second video shows how Type R Limited drives very quickly through the full circle of a race track that Honda itself built decades ago. In the last few seconds of the video, a stopwatch appears in the frame, obviously indicating that the company decided to fix the lap times of a full circle.

Only a few assumptions can be made from this teaser, but with a certain degree of certainty.

During an interview at the presentation of the car, the chief engineer mentioned that Honda did not set the task of setting high-speed records in the development of the Civic Type R Limited. We also understand that during a pandemic, all kinds of movements are undesirable, which is why Honda specialists decided to use the most famous track in their country.

Recall that the Civic Type R Limited is a lighter version of the model, which will be released in a limited edition. The car is mainly intended for racing tracks. A total of 600 new items will be released, which will be 20 kg lighter than the standard Type R, and will change Continental tires to more sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Shock absorbers will receive sportier settings, in addition, Honda specialists have retuned the steering for better reverse communication with the driver.

From what we know, the new version of the Japanese hatchback should be an absolute “monster” on almost any track, and today’s teaser, I hope, was the first official statement about this. Honda has not yet determined a price for the novelty.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the updated Honda BR-V crossover got to dealers. Compared with the previous modification, the novelty received a refreshed exterior and an additional set of options.
