2.0 liter and an output of 280 HP – that’s what Honda is bringing new to the table, everything coming our from the newest turbocharged – VTEC engine from Honda, EURO 6 compliant. This engine is a bold move for Honda, and it will be in premiere on the European market.

The car was presented yesterday, in Japan, but the video presented below was filmed at the Nurburgring circuit , in Germany; Gabriele Tarquini, the pilot who took the new turbocharged  CTR for a spin stated that: ” ‘The car and the characteristics of the car were fantastic. I was really impressed by the power and the torque of the engine but also by the set-up they achieved…The car is very pointed on the front and very fast to change direction’. ‘This car is very close to my racing car and you can feel very well the DNA of Type R.

As many of you already know, the official launching of this car is postponed for 2015, but we will have more details later this week, from Tokyo.
