T ras months fofos spy and after two different prototypes presented in recent international exhibitions, today debuted under the Geneva Motor Show version finally arrive in dealerships in the fourth generation Honda Civic Type R.
With a very aggressive body format, the new Type R has numerous aerodynamic additions such as huge rear spoiler than in the production version no longer incorporates the headlights, a diffuser with four tailpipes with chrome finish, front grille with a more radical side skirts and black.
On the other hand the suspensions have been Discounted to decrease its clearance while the huge flared wheel arches, which feature a built air intakes, provide housing for huge wheels 19-inch alloy , painted in a combination of black and red .
In the cockpit highlights racing seats upholstered in a red cloth, a tone that is repeated in seatbelts and moldings. The dashboard is specific to this version of sportier tone and more information for use in circuits as measures the acceleration and return types .
The new Type R develops 310 hp and accelerates from 0-100 km / h in 5.7 seconds.
Both the door panels, as the pedals and steering wheel are also specific variant Type R, in tune with the rest of the elements of the interior.
But where the most important developments is hidden under the hood, which accommodates a turbocharged 4-cylinder, 2.0 liter engine, which produces 310 horsepower rotates at 7,000 rpm and has 400 Nm of torque. The propellant is associated with a manual six relations and Honda took care to clarify that no dual-clutch automatic transmission and will be offered.
With this mechanical assembly Honda Civic Type R can accelerate from 0-100 kph in 5.7 seconds , a time that makes it the best in its category, while it can reach 271 mph top speed.
The power of your turbo engine combined with an braking system specifically designed for this version and has about ventilated front discs 350 mm equipped with jaws four pistons . The 19-inch wheels are shod with tires in average 235/35/19 .
The suspension system also differs from conventional Civic as the front axle uses the McPherson type ‘ Dual Axis Strut’ minimizing movements unwanted when your slip differential comes into operation.
The rear suspensions keep the same configuration as the rest of the Civic, but adds a estabilizdora bar achieves increase stiffness by 180 percent. well the system is completed with a steering system with power-assisted adaptive dampers .
Under improve conductive characteristics according to the circumstances, Honda’s engineers incorporated a selector that lets you choose between different driving modes, which modifies the behavior of elements such as damping or direction.
In the category named ‘+ R ‘ system hardens by 30% shock absorbers, steering becomes more direct with a lesser degree of assistance and engine response and throttle is increased, which transforms his behavior adapted for use in circuits . The other modes allow more comfortable behavior , allowing its use in daily life less painful for the kidneys.
