The next generation Honda Civic Type R has been rendered as a very aggressive and desirable coupe.

The next generation Honda Civic Type R has been rendered as a very aggressive and desirable coupe.

Our friends at CivicX sent us these two renders of a potential Civic Coupe Type R, but we will have to wait a while since the Type R based on the outgoing Civic went on sale only recently. This means the next-gen won't be out sooner than 2018 and it's unknown at this point whether the coupe will receive the Type R treatment, but it would be a shame if it didn't.

The attached speculative renders are based on the stunning Civic Coupe concept and also on the recent batches of spy shots and leaked patent designs, so the digital illustrations have some foundation and are more than just styling exercises to show off the author's talent.

It will be interesting to see what will power the next Civic Type R, but most likely it will be something stronger than the 2.0-liter turbo inside the current version where it pumps out 310 PS (228 kW) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque. Taking into account the tenth-gen Civic is billed as an all-new model, most likely it will lose some kilos so the Type R should also undergo a strict diet. More power corroborated with less weight will enable the hot compact model easily surpass the current model in terms of performance so expect the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) to take less than the 5.7 seconds needed by the five-door hatch on sale today.

Check out the source link below for plenty of renders with the regular next-gen coupe.
