This week on evo – Sports car bargains, P1 GTR, Civic Type-R and more

A look at the most exciting things from the world of evo this week

As the dust settles on the Geneva motor show, we can now appreciate just how much great metal took pride of place on the stands this year.

There’s far too many to list for our selection of five stories from the past week, so we’ve limited it to two supercars – you can of course seek out our Geneva motor show hub page for more details.

Should you buy a Honda Civic Type-R?

The EP3-generation Honda Civic Type-R isn’t the first Civic Type-R – that label falls to the EK9 model sold only in Japan from 1997 to 2000.

But it was the first officially sold in the UK and set the hot hatch market alight with its high-revving 197bhp engine. Now, you can find them from just £2000.

McLaren P1 GTR preview

No less striking now than when it was first announced, the McLaren P1 GTR was an undoubted star of the Geneva motor show.

We’ve got a full gallery, video and details of the track-only hypercar here. If you're feeling flush, we've covered the McLaren 675LT and even the F1 GT long-tail in detail too...

Tuthill Porsche WRC: from racer to rally car

It looks it too, as you’ll see in our video, with a walk-around with Maurizio Reggiani.
