Civic engineer confirms "a faster 'Type R style' car is under development" (for Europe)
 Date: September 15, 2011 08:31

With the all new European Civic launching at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week, it was inevitable that the question "What are the plans for the Type-R?" would come up.

New Honda Civic chief engineer Mitsuru Kariya has confirmed to Autocar a faster ‘Type R style’ car is under development.


So that begs the question of what engine will find its way under this 'Type R style' car's bonnet? The same gimped K24 that's found in our 2012 Si, or a proper 'Type R style' engine? Also of note, this hotter version of the Civic may not even be badged as a 'Type R', even though "At one point the Type R variant accounted for 15 per cent of Honda’s total Civic sales."
