Honda has released the first pictures of the Civic Next Generation Touring Car (NGTC).

Currently undergoing testing, the model is based on the Euro-spec Civic and will compete in the British Touring Car Championship. The company declined to go into specifics, but the car features an aggressive body kit, a side-mounted exhaust and a prominent rear spoiler. We can also see a roll cage and Dunlop tires.

According to driver and triple-BTCC champion Matt Neal, "It will be interesting to see how the car performs, but I'm optimistic that we'll walk away from today confident we have a championship winning car."
