It was just this morning that Honda announced the introduction of three all-new VTEC TURBO engines as part of its growing Earth Dreams Technology range. A new 1.0 litre, 1.5 litre and 2.0 litre VTEC TURBO engines are expected to join the current line-up. The Civic Type R will be the first model in Europe to have one of Honda’s all-new VTEC TURBO engines. The 2.0 litre, direct injection, 4-cylinder turbo engine is expected to have class-leading output in excess of 276 horsepower.

Following recent testing at the Nurburgring in Germany, WTCC driver Gabriele Tarquini was of the opinion that the 2015 Type R is a brilliant car. He wasn’t only impressed by the power and torque of the engine but also by the set-up achieved on the car. He continued to say  “The car is very pointed on the front and very fast to change direction. This car is very close to my racing car and you can feel very well the DNA of Type R”.
