Our Croatian friend Luka C emailed us these two shots of what we believe could be the production version of the new 2015 Honda Civic Type R.
“Here are two pictures of new Honda Civic Type R!” said Luka. “[The] car was seen in the Croatian city of Rijeka while shooting promotional videos and photos”.
It’s not a lot to go by, but comparing these pictures to the most recent Civic Type R Concept seen at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, this sample appears to be missing the study’s steroidal wheel arches and front and rear fender air slits, while keeping the massive rear wing and an altered version of the rear diffuser.
Obviously, we’ll need to get a better and closer look at the car to be sure, but at a first glance, it does look like it may be the production version that will go on sale in Europe next year.
Honda has already confirmed that the new Type R will debut a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four VTEC engine with over 280-horses driving the front wheels.
H/T to Luka for the photo-scoop!
