A less boisterous Honda Civic Type R in the future?

Hot hatch and compact car enthusiasts in their 20s and 30s that want but can’t afford the cars are having to deal with guys in their 40s and 50s that want and can afford the cars. These old fogies are the potential reason why a lightly camouflaged Civic Type R has been spied going around the Nürburgring – with a small rear spoiler.

The Civic Type R, like the Subaru WRX STI, are known for their large wings but in many cases, those purchasing the car want the performance without the boy-racer look. The STI can be ordered without the rear shelving unit and more than likely, based on the pictures, the Type R will have a similar trim.

As well, it appears as though the front and rear ends have been lightly updated with small grilles at each extremity. Rumours of a more powerful Type R, with AWD, have circulated on the interwebs which could, in part, explain the minor physical changes.
