Honda has taken a leaf out of the Lexus playbook, unveiling a repainted version of its hot Civic Type R concept.

Revealed in a deep red finish at March’s Geneva Motor Show, the Type R concept has been given a new blue hue for this week’s Paris Motor Show.

The lightly refreshed look is rounded out with some new body graphics, including a unique ‘R’ pattern through the front guards and doors.

The concept’s rocketship styling remains unchanged for its Paris outing, and the mechanical package is also believed to be unchanged.

Specific details for the new Civic Type R are still to come, although Honda has previously confirmed that a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine will provide upwards of 206kW.

And with Paris the last of this year’s major European motor shows, we could see the British-built hatch’s figures detailed in the coming week.

Honda says the new Type R’s turbo engine will deliver “unrivalled” power, torque and engine response when compared against previous Type R models - including the legendary NSX.

The company has also reaffirmed that the Type R will be offered exclusively with a six-speed manual shifter.

Officially, this is in recognition of a preference for the format among enthusiasts, but it may also have been a step to avoid the costs of developing a suitable automatic option.

"The manual transmission allows the drivers to select the gear they want, for example, down from fifth to third when approaching a corner," Type R project boss Suehiro Hasshi says.

“The concept of the new Civic Type R is to be the complete driver’s car so this was the best option."

The Civic Type R will also feature a special +R button on the steering wheel, delivering specific settings for engine response, steering and adaptive dampers.

"In default standard mode, the Civic Type R is exceptionally agile, an everyday sports car with an enjoyable and fluid acceleration," Hasshi says.

"The ‘+R’ button brings out a more dynamic and athletic car for the driver, to set pulses racing. The difference in character is immense. The ‘+R’ mode is extreme; the car is ideal for track use and will be appreciated by the genuine sports-driving enthusiast.”

The Type R also gets a new ‘Steer Axis’ system that adds two unique supporting kingpins to the front suspension, introduced in a bid to reduce the huge torque-steer factor that all high-powered front-wheel-drive cars must battle.

Watch for more details to surface in the coming week.
