New Honda Civic Type R Revealed In TCR Racing Guise

Just when you thought the new Honda Civic Type R couldn’t look more outlandish, the Japanese automaker has shown off the hot hatch in TCR touring car spec.

Built by JAS Motorsport, the new Type R TCR will replace the current Civic racer in the ever-growing touring car category.

Only a single image of the car has been released so far, but it shows a huge front splitter affixed to a custom bumper with enlarged air intakes and a new vented hood. Elsewhere, the Civic Type R TCR receives prominent side skirts, flared wheel arches and a proper racing rear wing, not the boy racer one found on the road car.

Like all other competitors in the TCR series, the car shares many key components with the production car, including its engine, which can be modified to around 330 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. TCR entrants can also retain their standard manual transmissions or be equipped with a race-spec sequential. It isn’t yet known which set up JAS will adopt.

JAS says deliveries of its new racer will commence on December 15, with 25 examples being ready for the 2018 season.
