Honda Civic Type R Will Debut in Production Form in Geneva

  Honda Civic Type R Will Debut in Production Form in Geneva We’ve seen enough prototypes, so now it’s time for Honda to reveal its most anticipated new car in quite a while. The Honda Civic Type R will debut in production form at the Geneva Motor Show in March. We don’t expect the final production model to look much different from the prototypes we’ve seen recently.The Civic Type R will feature a version of Honda's latest 2.0-liter turbocharged gas engine, but we don't know how much power it will make. The outgoing Type R produced 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Production of the new Type R will begin this summer at Honda's manufacturing facility in Swindon, U.K. Honda has already confirmed the Type R will make it to the U.S. for the first time.

After its official world debut at the 2017 Geneva auto show, the 2017 Honda Civic Type R has started making its auto show rounds in North America with an appearance at the 2017 New York auto show.

The car that made its debut in Geneva was finished in an eye-catching shade of pull-me-over red, which gave it an aggressive look. Although it's difficult to tell in the harsh auto show lighting, Honda confirmed to us that this Type R is painted in the brand's storied Championship White color. That paint code has appeared on such celebrated high-performance Japanese-market Honda models as the EK9 Civic Type R and NSX Type R, but we haven't seen it on these shores since the Acura Integra Type R left production in 2001.

Powering the 2017 Civic Type R is a 2.0-liter turbo-four with 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. If this sounds familiar, that's because it's the same unit used in the outgoing ninth-generation model that was exclusive to the European market. A six-speed manual with an automatic rev-matching feature that can be turned off is the only transmission available. Adjustable suspension with a Dual Axis front setup, aluminum lower arms, and steering knuckles comes standard with three-chamber dampers. It also has 20-inch alloy wheels shod in Continental ContiSportContact 6 performance tires. The Type R comes standard with an adaptive steering system, Brembo brakes, a helical limited-slip differential, and a full aero kit complete with a gigantic rear wing.

2017 Honda Civic Type Rs spotted on a truck headed... somewhere .
They're likely heading to Ohio for an initial, premedia shakedown.A reader who chose to remain anonymous for some reason (Honda doesn't have secret police or anything) sent us these pictures of multiple 2017 Honda Civic Type Rs being shipped across the country. The photos don't show us anything we haven't already seen, unless you count that one shot of the Type R's triple-tailpipe muffler, but the pictures are too small to start nit-picking welds or anything like that.
