Tokyo Auto Salon Wows with Debuts and Mods from Many Major Makes

Autoweek Logo By Mark Vaughn of Autoweek | Slide 2 of 15: Honda showed a camouflaged next-gen Civic Type R at the Salon, and released a YouTube video to go with it. Exact details were slim, but Honda does say it’s the fastest production Civic ever. What we could tell from the video was that the hot hatch has three exhaust pipes, four doors, and a big wing on the back. The video shows the Type R lapping Suzuka Circuit in Japan, a feat it seems to be accomplishing at what they call full wallop. “Fresh from testing at the Suzuka Circuit, the all-new Honda Civic Type R made its first public appearance in prototype at the Tokyo Auto Salon, Japan’s premiere high-performance and custom car show,” Honda said in a brief release. “Wearing a special camouflage designed exclusively for Type R, the prototype is featured in a new action-packed test-driving video, so TAS visitors can go behind the scenes with Honda engineers and experience the development of Type R. The best performing Civic Type R ever will be officially unveiled this year.”
