Civic Type R a one-off ne

HONDA Europe executive Philip Ross has said there are no immediate plans for more Type R hero models. Previously, Honda has offered a range of R-badged performance models covering Civic, Integra, Prelude and NSX. For now, that leaves the Civic Type R at the top of the brand’s Redli performance tree as the sole Type R model, at least until the new NSX supercar arrives here in 2016. Ross said there are “no plans at the moment to do any other Type Rs”. “[The Civic] has taken us a while to develop, and this is what we’re focused on … it’s so exceptional it’s good for us now.”
