The all-new Honda Civic Type R Prototype Premieres at the Tokyo Auto Salon

The new Honda Civic Type R is looking fast


  • The shared video shows the new Civic Type R running laps around the Suzuka Circuit in Japan.

  • The previous FK8 Type R makes a few brief appearances.


The Honda Civic Type R, any Type R from the brand, is the stuff of legend. Every Type R, from the EK9 Civic and the DC2 Honda (Acura) Integra to the latest FK8 Civic Type R have all pushed FWD performance limits to incredible levels. In this short video, Honda shares testing footage of the next FL Type R.

A First Look at the 2023 Honda Civic Type-R

All of these cars, now highly praised and desirable collectable including the FK8 last sold and produced in 2021, have led up to the new FL. Although the FK8 pushed boundaries to a point that had many enthusiasts refer to it as a FWD GT3, the FL will likely better an even more competent track missile.

Details are still very limited on the car however power should come from a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine that will put out roughly the same amount as the FK8, or just over 300 horsepower. Dynamically, the new Type R’s aerodynamics look cleaner and Honda engineers will have found a away to make them even more efficient. If anything, the rear spoiler is far sleeker.

For Civic Type R lovers

We look forward to finding more about the new 2023 Honda Civic Type R and driving it. We’re also a little sad as this will probably be the last non-electrified Type R ever.
