Honda Type R celebrates 25 Anniversary in UK

Honda Type R celebrates 25 Anniversary in UK

Since its introduction in 1992, the Type R has come a long way in helping the Honda brand take the legendary status. Honda will be celebrating its 25th anniversary at Rockingham Motor Speedway, where select guests will also get a chance to drive the Civic Type R, the Accord and the Integra. Honda Type R was originally called as the ‘NSX-R’ and the car received motorsport-inspired engineering upgrades, powerful high-revving engine and performance-focused suspension setup. Initially, from 1992 to 1995, Honda produced a very limited number of NSX Type R for Japan.

Honda introduced the upgraded version in 1995 called the ‘DC2 Integra Type R’ in Japan first, followed by its launch in the UK in 1998. Powered by a 1.8-liter DOHC VTEC in-line 4-cylinder (B18C) engine, the vehicle generated 196 bhp of power at 8,000rpm. Later on, Honda introduced the Accord Type R followed by the Civic Type R, which is the latest one. In July 2015, the new Honda Civic Type-R was introduced in UK with all-new, direct-injected turbocharged 2.0-litre VTEC Turbo petrol engine that generates 306bhp. The latest one is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100kmph in just about 5.7-seconds and reaches a top speed of 269kmph.

Reports indicate that at maximum revs, the 1998 Integra Type R’s pistons moved up and down faster than a contemporary Formula 1 engine when it was run at maximum revs. As part of the traditional styling, the Type R vehicles feature a red Honda badge and Championship White paint as an option, which comes as a tribute to their first winning F1 car. Interestingly, the second-generation Honda NSX-R featured a speedometer that read up to 300mph (322kmph).
