The Civic Type R is based on the new Civic Type-S 3-door released today by Honda. The Type-R will go on sale in March 2007. The highly-anticipated Type R will offer greater sophistication without compromising the Type R philosophy of exhilarating performance through advanced engineering.

The Type-R is still officially a concept, but expect the production car to stick very closely to this design. The Type-R will join the Civic line-up, running an uprated version of the old car’s high-revving 197bhp 2.0-litre powerplant.
