Honda Civic Type-R: Type R for 2007 - it's official

We weren't expecting to hear the news quite so early, but Honda has just confirmed that a Type-R version of the new Civic will be launched in the first quarter of 2007

Before that, however, the Japanese firm will reveal a 'concept' performance Civic at the Geneva motor show in early March.

As yet there are no further official details on the Type-R, though in order to make its presence felt in the marketplace it will need at least 240bhp, which will probably mean employing either the 2-litre or even the 2.4-litre four from the Accord.
