Of course, the crème de la crème of a Civic Type R are its engine and superb handling.
Underneath the hood is still a 2.0-liter turbocharged in-line-four with an improved six-speed manual transmission sending power to the front wheels. But that’s as much information that we’ll get, as Honda’s quite mum on the figures and the specifics.
Considering the vehicle smashed its own Suzuka lap record and Honda says that it has been tuned at the Nurburgring, we trust that the engineers from Minato will deliver.
More prices and details will be provided closer to the vehicle’s official global launch later this year, but we definitely can’t wait for when Honda Cars Philippines brings this latest model to our shores.
