This won’t be the final-form roadgoing Type R, however. Honda says it’ll show a Type R prototype “wearing a special camouflage.” Expect this wrap to be slightly more revealing than, but should still leave a little to the imagination. Of course, Honda routinely debuts , so the Civic Type R that bows in January should be pretty representative of the final product.

Expect turbo power, a manual transmission, a limited-slip differential and, of course, a huge wing., and it should get all of the interior refinement upgrades as the rest of the 11th-generation
The 2023 Honda Civic Type R will be on display in Tokyo from Jan. 14 to 16. The production version is expected to debut sometime later in the year.
