Honda Civic Type R Racer Brings 350 HP to British Touring Car Championship
The all-new, not-for-U.S.- utilization Honda Civic Type R is as of now a stunning bit of hardware: The turbo-charged hatchback pumps out 306 torque from a 2.0-liter four-chamber and shouts to a top rate of 168 mph. This ain't your regular Civic suburbanite. Also, the BTCC racer, uncovered today, is far superior.
This is the Honda Yuasa BTCC racer, set to make a big appearance at Donington on March 24th. Beginning with the officially bonkers Civic Type R, the racer scores things up extensively. The motor now impacts out 350 strength and 295 lb-ft of torque, with bodywork that gives more downforce than the active Civic wagon variation that kept running in the BTCC a year ago.
We don't have any points of interest on the undercarriage adjustments done to the Type R racer, however it's not as though Honda was beginning off with a failure: The Civic Type R simply crushed the Nürburgring lap record for front-wheel-drive vehicles, setting out a period that was a unimportant 10 seconds off the pace of a Porsche Cayman GT4. With a race-prepared undercarriage and none of the trappings of a road legitimate suburbanite, anticipate that the execution will be much more fabulous.
With the new Type R being implicit the U.K., it just bodes well for Honda to run it in the BTCC. We'd contend it likewise bodes well to put a couple of the road vehicles on a watercraft and send them stateside, however so far that thinking has failed to be noticed
