ICYMI: Watch the next-gen Civic Type R blast around Suzuka Circuit

https://www.youtube.com/embed/uAXn5jumcRs

We’ve seen plenty of pictures of the upcoming Civic Type R, but now we get to see it in action.

Following its first public debut at the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon, the (still camouflaged) Type R was displayed alongside this teaser video that gives us a look at the car going through sea trials at the famed Suzuka Circuit.

Excited by all the hype Honda has generated thus far, or are you cautiously waiting for the Civic Type R to be fully revealed?

Couldn't help but notice Honda even camouflaged the head badge. Does this mean we're getting a new "Type R" style badge, or am I just reading too far into this?

The blandness of vehicle styling is sad to see.

1:21 video. and I counted 67 different cuts.

I would love to see it get through one complete turn from braking, turn-in, to track-out.  I'm sure we'll get a better look soon.

In typical Honda Hype fashion, we'll get teasers for another 9 months while California dealers will actually get the car 8 months from now, and then details will be released.

At least the Gran Turismo intro video theme this had going on was kinda cool.

In reply to TT86 :

Well, it's a Civic.

I'll take bland over fake vents and grills.

Not my flavor, but I'm just glad the big guys still care about performance cars.  What a great time to be a track junkie.
