There’s nothing wrong with an automaker showcasing two different concepts before rolling out a production car, which is why I’m not at all surprised Honda is bringing the Type R Concept II to the Paris Motor Show before unveiling its next high-performance Civic hatch. However, I suspect the Concept II is as production-ready as it gets, and the latest batch of spy shots that arrived in our inbox come to confirm just that. While we’re all busy gazing at the striking Concept II and its flashy paint job, Honda is testing the real deal close to the Nurburgring. And guess what? The production Type R appears to be identical to the Concept II that’s slated to debut on October 2nd, 2014.
