2015 Honda Civic Type R previewed on video with ‘at least 276 bhp’

The Honda Civic Type R has died a death as new emission regulations sounded the death knell for the high-revving naturally aspirated lump under its bonnet. But Honda are planning on bringing the Type R back to life in 2015, but rather than a¬†VTEC engine that only wanted to really play over 5000 rpm, Honda are heading back to hot hatch goodness with a new turbo engine that promises ‘at least’ 276bhp.

That should make the next Honda Civic Type R not only a lot quicker than the last Type R, but its power will be accessible much lower down the rev range and economy and emissions will be much improved.

Honda are previewing the 2015 Civic Type R with a video (below) of a development version of the 2015 Type R on track, and a few photos (above).

The sad part is that, despite the new Civic Type R looking well on the way, we have to wait until 205 until it arrives in Honda showrooms.
