Honda have announced today that the all-new Civic will race in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), possibly entering the series in 2012 in a selection of races to be agreed with the FIA.
Honda’s Civic 237 bhp Type R MUGEN first emerged on the scene in 2010 – a hand-built, motorsport-derived hot hatch, with a 20-strong limited edition production run. But despite the appeal of its unique specification, only 16 cars were sold.
With the 9th generation Civic soon to be revealed at Frankfurt, Northampton-based MUGEN Euro have worked their magic again, producing a final version of the MUGEN Type R with even more power and torque.
