2018 Honda Civic Type R Release Date – Honda introduced to the public their latest sporty sedan, the Civic R in the annual automotive exhibition Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2017 held at the ICE building.
Civic Type R that was trafficked to Indonesia is the development of the 10th generation Honda Civic. Each Honda Type R mode always represents the purity of the original concept to minimize weight, maximize power, responsiveness, dynamic stability, and high braking performance. The goal is to provide the most satisfying driving experience both on the road and on the circuit. No wonder the latest generation Civic Type R set a record as the fastest front-wheel drive car at the Nurburgring Circuit, Germany, with a record time of 7 minutes, 43.80 seconds per lap.
For a dozen years Honda Indonesia has never sold the Honda Type R officially, whether it’s Civic Type R, Integra Type R, Euro R Accord or the embryo, NSX-R. Look at it, from the Civic Type R EK9, EP3, FD2, FN2 and FK2 are all not included in the name of Honda Prospect Motor. All from General Importers.
The Civic Type R carries the 2.0 L VTEC engine, which blows up a maximum of 310 ps at 6,500 rpm and maximum torque of 400 Nm at 2,500-4,500 rpm. Support 6 speed manual transmission, plus three driving modes, namely + R, Sport, and Comfort.
Moving from the generation of FK2 to FK8, Honda Civic Type R is actually still carrying the same engine, the 2,000 cc 4-cylinder VTEC Turbo engine coded K20C1, with maximum power 310 PS and 400 Nm of torque. Acceleration 0-100 km / h is just 5.7 seconds and maximum speed is at the number 272 km / hour. Unlike VW Golf R, Ford Focus RS and Mercedes-AMG A45 that use AWD, Civic Type R still use FWD, the reason is let light, but Honda also said “tradition”.
