Honda has announced a new racing car that is meant to be fielded in amateur Touring Car competition and SRO TC Americas racing. The car is called the Honda Civic Type R TC, and it can be purchased by licensed racers directly from Honda Performance Development for $89,900.
The car uses many stock Honda Civic Type R bits but has numerous racing modifications. Mods include a CSF-designed radiator and oil cooler, high-flow front grille, and a vented hood. The transmission is a 6-speed manual with high-strength 3rd and 4th gears.
The car has upgraded brakes, an HPD/Cusco limited-slip diff, welded in roll cage, and OMP racing seats with 6-point harnesses. The production-based 2.0L turbo engine makes 270 to 330 horsepower depending on the series.
