NEW CIVIC TYPE R PROTOTYPE UNVEILED AT 2016 MONDIAL DE L'AUTOMOBILE IN PARIS

◾New Civic Type R Prototype unveiled at 2016 Mondial de L'Automobile in Paris
◾Prototype marked out by wide, aggressive bumpers, extended wheel arches and dramatic rear wing
◾Bespoke 'brushed aluminium' wrap provides eye-catching finish
◾Car officially unveiled at 14:30 on the Honda stand in Hall 3

The new Honda Civic Type R Prototype has been revealed at the 2016 Mondial de L'Automobile in Paris, offering an insight into the styling of the next-generation Civic Type R which will be officially unveiled in 2017.

Based on the low and wide proportions of the new Civic hatchback, the Type R Prototype is enhanced by muscular body styling and modifications to aid aerodynamic performance. The exterior is clothed in a highly reflective, finely-grained brushed aluminium-effect finish unique to the show car.

At the front, the aggressive bumper is accentuated wîth a winged carbon fibre splitter and sporty red accent line. Additional slatted ducts add width to the bumper, and diamond-mesh inserts fill the sculpted air intakes.

Honda's famous red 'H' badge – which adorns all Type R models – sits above a new air vent at the nose of the car. There is also a new intake on the bonnet, wîth an air scoop sited centrally in a trapezoidal recess. Smoked lenses for the LED headlights, indicators and side repeaters reflect the Type R Prototype's more aggressive character.

Vital Stats

CVT
Carbon fibre side skirts run the length of the wheelbase, between 20-inch piano black alloy wheels wîth red accents and 245-section high-performance tyres. Enlarged arches accommodate the new wheels.


A substantial carbon fibre diffuser runs below the wider rear bumper, which frames three fully-functional tailpipes wîth a pair of directional strakes at each side. The central tailpipe is of a smaller diameter and is highlighted in bright metallic red. Únique peaks at the roof flanks point backwards towards a dramatic, visually striking rear wing.

The next-generation Civic Type R was engineered within the same development programme as the other members of the Civic family, and will be officially unveiled in production form next year. It will be produced at Honda of the ÚK Manufacturing (HÚM) in Swindon – the global manufacturing hub for the five-door hatchback, wîth sales expected to begin in Europe during the second half of 2017.

The Type R will be exported to markets around the world, including the ÚS – which will mark the first time that any Honda-badged Type R has been officially sold in North America.

The Type R will be officially unveiled at 14:30 on the Honda stand, located in Hall 3.
