2017 Honda Civic Type R Prototype North American Debut
The 2016 SEMA Show is fast approaching, as what many people consider the official North American kick-off of the auto show season. A couple of years ago, we attended the event in Las Vegas ourselves, and while we can’t be there this year we’re just as excited about what we’re going to see at the event. Honda recently release a huge list of the different vehicles that will make their way to the show, including a host of different Civic and Ridgeline models. But what we’re most excited for is, of course, the North American debut of the 2017 Honda Civic Type R Prototype that debuted in Paris a few weeks ago.

One of the most interesting and appealing things about the Civic Type R Prototype is that it looks more like an aftermarket enthusiast’s project. Starting with the architecture of the new Civic Hatchback, the manufacturer adds body kit upgrades to enhance not only the sporty aesthetic of the vehicle but the aerodynamic performance as well. On the front end, the Type R adds a winged carbon fiber splitter and red accent line to set it apart from the Hatchback, and of course its extremely aggressive spoiler sets it even further apart.
We cannot wait for the unveiling of the official production model, but until then we can’t get enough of the 2017 Honda Civic Type R Prototype. As more information beyond simply exterior design cues becomes available, we’ll fill you in. But in the coming weeks, expect plenty of information about the other vehicles at the SEMA Show.
