After we have seen the Honda CR-Z at the 2010 Detroit auto show, we have another good new for you. The Japanese company is also preparing a Type-R version of the hybrid car and it will be launched in 2011.

The Type R version will be defined by daytime running lights in the front apron and a black rear diffuser with integrated exhaust pipes, black bonnet, wing mirrors and wheels and an alpine-white paint scheme on the rest of the car.

While the standard CR-Z develops a total of 122 hp, the Type-R version will go up to 200hp. This will be possible thanks to a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine that will develop a total of 150 hp and a larger 50bhp electric motor. The result will be a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and a top speed of 140mph.

The Cr-Z Type-R will debut next year at the Tokyo Auto Show and will go on sale shortly after.

What I don’t like on this car was the front grill only but it’s a good move for Honda to launched a ’hybrid’ type for CR-Z. Although the speed may suffer onto this one, what’s important is the fuel efficiency of this one and also some new external features especially the white and black matte combination.

Sporty... One thing that I love about cars from Honda is that the aftermarket parts such as kits and other accessories are not that difficult to locate and the car is easy to tune and set up. The more good news that I have seen about it is that the car can last a long time compared to other cars that one may use in the daily basis. Of course maintenance varies the result but it is one of the reason why its easy to have a Honda.

that was a scary air intake, looks like a robot from transformers. honda didn’t intend to make it fast but a 150HP and 140MPH is acceptable.
