A Glimpse into the next Type-R Touring Car
All over the Frankfurt Motor show there's been new hot hatches getting attention, including Hyundai, Seat and Renault. They all want to have a crack at the new Civic Type R, currently the most beastly front-driver hatch back on sale.
Naturally Honda fought back with their Civic Type R Customer Racing Study. A little teaser into what next year's Civic touring cars will look like. Dominating in recent seasons of the British Touring Car Championship with the current model, the new one will continue the tradition.
Picture this car with a bright vibrant livery, and you're pretty much looking at the car that Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal will fling around Britains best circuits next year.
