If you’re looking to run a Honda Civic Type R as a race car but don’t have the heart to strip it of its comfort-oriented features–after all, you paid anywhere from just below PHP3 million to over PHP4 million depending on who you bought it from–then Honda Performance Development (HPD) has just the solution for you.
Co-developed with Honda partner JAS Motorsport in Italy, HPD is now offering a race-ready Honda Civic Type R it calls Civic Type R TCR. Developed for touring car competition, the Type R TCR has a 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine that’s been massaged to produce around 340 hp and 420 Nm of torque through the front wheels via a six-speed, paddle-operated sequential gearbox.
Helping the Type R TCR run around the track are its race-tuned suspensions fitted with gas-filled Ohlins shock absorbers and 18-inch OZ Racing wheels while stopping power is provided by six-pot steel ventilated steel disc brakes up front and two-pot steel discs at the rear.
Outside, the Type R TCR has an aggressive, aerodynamic wide-body kit that’s highlighted by a huge front splitter and rear wing while inside, the car gets a OMP composite HTE seat, automatic fire extinguisher, and an MSA-certified welded roll cage cage with lifting devices.
If you’re planning to buy one, best get in touch with HPD then.
