The current Honda Civic left me convinced after the first test drive. Seldom have I been so convinced of a new generation of compact cars from an importer as of this new Civic. The 150 HP diesel that was driven and the upscale equipment naturally played their part in this - which ultimately delivered a convincing performance. The driving report - quite short - can be found both on die-Testfahrer.de and in the automobil-blog.de (2 versions). But what about the sporty side of Honda? What's coming The new NSX has already made its rounds in feature films as a roadster and the closed version stands around at trade fairs and attracts hungry looks from fans of the brand. Now a US magazine wants prototypes of a HONDA Civic Type-R on the Nordschleife have discovered.
Civic Type-R on the Nordschleife?Source: http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/01/next-honda-civic-type-r-spotted-near-ring/
Personally, I do not believe that you see 2 Type-R models here. Only because of the rear wing? No, I suppose here is more the desire, the mother of thoughts. A Type-R would probably also with special suspension, modified wheel / tire combination and a larger brake system on the ring road.
For me, however, both the wheels and the chassis package (height!) And especially the brakes look completely like the standard version. A Type-R variant with a terrible ironing board, trailer coupling and a small sheet metal lip under the front bumper? Rather unlikely. Even if the Nürburgring is always the home and yard of the automobile industry for their test drives - in this case I don't believe in Type-R Erlkönig.
For the vehicles shown, however, I would rather develop an accessory program (not this wing, please!) - or balance tests, for whatever reason. Let's see what the Honda press department can say about it.
