Paris Motor Show 2016
Honda's high performance Civic Type-RAt the 2014 Paris Motor Show, Honda brings out the big guns with the Civic Type-R which unfortunately might not make US shores anytime soon.
[MUSIC] What's up, folks? Antuan Goodwin here on the floor at the 2014 Paris Auto Show and here's something that you're not gonna see on American soil anytime soon. It's a Honda Civic Hatchback and it's a Type-R. Now this new Type-R concept is gonna be powered by a. A two liter version of Honda's IV tech engine. But it's also going to be augmented with a turbo charger. Now what that means is that this guys going to output about 276 horsepower at least. Honda's not actually locked down the numbers yet. It's going to be front wheel drive like every six that's come before it. And it's going to use a six speed manual transmission. But some new things that we're going to see in the vehicle are a three stage adaptive suspension so you'll be able to. Switch between different modes for street and for track. There's also a plus R button next to the steering wheel, an all in one sort of support button that's gonna check the engine's, performance and the suspension set-up at their most hardcore, track-ready. Honda maintains that this wide-body Civic is a track car, and that they're gunning for the [INAUDIBLE] front wheel drive record with it. Again, we're probably not gonna see this on the street any time in North America. But, a version of this probably will be hitting European streets and Japanese streets sometime in the next year or so. I'm [INAUDIBLE] Goodwin here on the floor of the 2014 Terrace Auto Show taking a look at the Honda Cera Type R concept.
