Work continues on the 2015 Honda Civic Type-R as our spies have managed to catch a new prototype.

Previewed by the Civic Type-R concept, the prototype features a sporty body kit that includes a new front bumper, revised side skirts and widened fender flares. The model also has BBS wheels, Brembo brakes and a sporty rear bumper with a four-tailpipe exhaust system. Interestingly, the massive rear wing from the concept and the development prototype are nowhere to be found on this particular model.

Power will be provided by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine that develops "at least" 280 PS (206 kW). Honda has been coy on the official numbers but speculation suggests the final output could be around 320 PS (235 kW).
