Photospies spotted test prototypes of the new Honda Civic Type R on the Nurburgring highway. One of them has an aggressive aerodynamic body kit, new mirrors and other stylistic changes. The remaining versions look almost stock, and may be a younger model of “charged” versions. Experts suggest that one of the prototypes is hiding a carbon roof under camouflage.

 Unfortunately, now the company does not distribute any official data on future updates. Now there is unconfirmed information that Honda will prepare the Civic Type R with varying degrees of forcing. This will provide a wider coverage of the target audience, both in terms of capacity and cost.

One of the variants of the power unit is a 2.0-liter turbo engine capable of developing up to 306 horsepower. Whether the company will use a manual transmission is still unknown.

Meanwhile, in New York presented the “charged” Honda Civic Si. The company decided to show the most sporty version in classic black. The prefix Si is traditionally marked with a red label on the grille.
