Red Label: Honda Civic Type R Prototype Inner surface Looks Ready for Takeoff
In Honda World, red isn’t just another colour. The red Honda badge is actually reserved for only its highest level of performance vehicles known as Type R. Throughout decades of automaking, Honda has applied the R only to a select few cars, the NSX, the Integra, as well as the Civic being the most memorable. The Civic has had the longest run of them all, yet there’s one major problem: the item’s never been to America. The Integra Type R is actually the only one we’ve had, as well as of which hasn’t been around since 2001. Thankfully, of which’s about to change.
After years of clamoring for more hot-hatch goodness, enthusiasts within the United States are finally getting the Honda they desire. At the Paris auto show last month, the Civic Type R prototype was unveiled in all its winged, scooped, as well as kitted glory. With all the attention surrounding the carbon fiber, the spoilers, the triple exhaust, as well as the 20-inch wheels, not many people seemed to take notice of the Inner surface. A website called Leblogauto, however, managed to open the prototype’s doors as well as take some photos.
As you can see, the red-against-black theme bleeds right into the steering wheel, the dash as well as door trim, as well as the floor mats. The rojo is actually most prevalent within the bolstered sport seats, which not only have contrast stitching on the bolsters yet also red inlays on the backrest as well as the bottom.

The photos also show what’s anticipated to be a six-speed manual shifter, metal pedals, carbon-fiber-like trim on the dashboard, as well as a large infotainment screen of which looks similar to what’s in the current Euro-spec Civic Type R. Below are a few photos captured more recently in a different preproduction test vehicle of which seems to closely match what’s inside the Paris show car. One thing of which’s missing: a manual e-brake handle, which some enthusiasts are sure to get upset about. Piece by piece, of which car is actually crawling toward reality. The Civic Type R is actually anticipated to be released stateside for the 2018 style year.
