    They got one bit wrong at least, the engine is in the WTCC car.

    2015 is a long wait, also 5 door only..hmm
    Things change, im only just starting to get used to the look of FN2.
    1.6 turbo should be interesting, it seems too many cars are going this way (smaller turbo engines)
    I love VTEC and high revving NA engines!
    Im sure it will still be a success

    Default New Honda Civic Type R 2015

    Don't know if this is where I should post this if not please move it to the correct place, also don't know if this has already been posted just incase it hasn't I thought I would. I know this has been touched upon but this sounds official.
    I was browsing on the web today and found these two links:
    http://www.whatcar.com/car-news/hond...in-2015/263947

    http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/paris-motor-show-2012/new-honda-civic-type-r-confirmed

    I
    think positives and negatives here guys.
    Positives:
    New Type R!!!!
    Possibly 250bhp (out of a 1.6??? WoW!)
    Aiming to be the fastest fwd car round the burg EVER!

    Negatives:
    Five door only, I'm not sure I think we should be given the choice of 3 or 5 door.
    Turbo, This could mean end of VTEC . I know we were expecting this but hoped they wouldn't. If they could do it I think it would be good if the turbo and VTEC worked together, maybe turbo in low-mid range and VTEC take over in high range or VTEC working alongside the turbo, just my little ideas lol.

    Old news now. 5 door hatches look awful, the new focus st and renaultsport clio are prime examples. Will wait for the Japs to say it's not good enough like they did with the FN2 when they made the FD2.

    Yeah I knew there was lots of rumours etc regarding the new type r but when I read these and they were official I thought I would share it although this news is 11 days old. Sorry read the date was 21st Sept thought it was October lol!

    Iirc Honda also expressed an interest in a return to F1 when the cars change to turbo so with btcc, wtcc and possibly f1 experience I think we're all expecting something pretty special performance wise, it's the looks that'll divide opinion.
