Article by Christian A., on September 16, 2013

At the Frankfurt Motor Show, Manabu Nishimae, President, Honda Motor Europe, announced that the 2015 Civic Type R will be powered by a direct injection turbocharged 2.0-litre engine capable to develop at least 280 PS. Apparently, the Japanese manufacturer wants the 2015 Civic Type R to become the fastest front wheel drive car around the infamous Nurburgring circuit in Germany.

Still, the sporty hatch will not arrive now as Honda needs 2 more years to develop it before going on sale in 2015. Manabu Nishimae said that the on-track testing already begun and the team already set a time approaching the lap record.

Moreover, a video with the Civic Type R prototype driven by Gabriele Tarquini was released and premiered during the Honda Press Conference in Frankfurt. For those who don’t know, Honda also introduced the new Civic Tourer at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and confirmed that their estate will be capable to use only 3.8 liters of fuel for travelling 100 km when using the 1.6 i-DTEC engine.
