New Honda Civic Type R Will Make U.S. Debut November 1st

The Honda Civic Type R like you’ve never seen it before will soon be making its grand U.S. entrance. This next-generation Civic (now in prototype mode) made its global debut on September 28th at the Paris Auto Show. Stateside, we anxiously await the first ever Civic Type R to grace American soil at the 2016 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, November 1-4. While this newest iteration of the Type R won’t officially be revealed until 2017, these concept photos give us a pretty good idea of what we’re in for.

If you did a double take at the paint job, you’re not alone. That sparkle is from a super reflective, intricately grained brushed aluminum-effect finish. While current reports from Honda state that paint job is exclusive to the prototype, we can’t help but wonder if it will be available as an option. We can dream. From a body style perspective, we’re enchanted by the super muscular styling, and downright menacing low and wide stance. The front fascia grins and growls as it flaunts its winged carbon filter splitter. A sleek red accent line runs around the bottom, while the iconic red Honda “H” badge looks you dead center as you stare into that awesomely sculpted grill. The new intake on the hood along with smoked lenses atop gleaming LED lights lends even more aggression.

20-inch “piano black” alloy wheels with red accents provide the ultimate structure for the high performance tires. Around the back, a substantial carbon diffuser frames three operating tailpipes accompanied by two directional strakes. Visual interest is further enhanced by the brilliant red circumference of the central tailpipe.

“We promised the most ambitious, sportiest Civic lineup ever and we’re delivering on that promise with each new Civic…. For the first time ever in America, Honda fans and enthusiasts will have access to the ultimate in Civic performance in the form of the new Type R.” -Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda Division of American Honda Motor Co., Inc.
