The Honda Civic Type R Prototype has finally been revealed at the 2016 SEMA Show, and it’s absolutely stunning. Built on the all new 2017 Honda Civic Type R, the prototype is completely outfitted with the best of Honda Factory Performance Parts. Check out this teaser video with a complete walk around the new Honda Civic Type R Prototype at SEMA.
Behind the Honda Civic Type R Prototype
The buzz behind the all new Civic Type R has never been louder. If anything the Honda Civic Type R Prototype is a sign of a new age of Honda performance. Along with the 2017 Civic hatchback, as well as the 10th Generation Civic Sedan and Civic Coupe, Honda seems to be making an aggressive push to reestablish itself in the fun sport compact segment.
Some of the notable upgrades to the Honda Civic Type R Prototype include a set of upgraded brakes and larger rims. With 20 inch piano black rims tucked in each corner, wrapped with 245 tires, the prototype looks ready to attack the track.
Paired with a larger more muscular looking stance, and highly reflective aluminum accents, the Honda Civic Type R Prototype also incorporates a thin red accent line. Carbon fiber splitters and highlights are found throughout the outside of the prototype Type R as well. We especially like the carbon fiber side skirts as the nice touch from Honda Factory Performance.
The Honda Civic Type R Prototype is a collaborative effort from the teams at Honda R&D. What’s more the new Civic Type R will be arriving next year in dealer showrooms near you. The Honda Civic Type R Prototype could mean that many of these Honda Factory Performance parts will be available from the get go.
