This article is about the FK8 model used in Asphalt 9: Legends. For the preceding FK2 model, see Honda Civic Type-R (FK2).

The Honda Civic Type-R (FK8) is the fifth generation of the Civic Type-R hatchback.

Overview

The Civic Type R Prototype was unveiled in September 2016 at the Paris Motor Show, and the production version unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The new car builds on Honda’s heritage in developing high-performance hatchbacks.

The design is based on the Civic Hatchback, with a winged carbon fibre splitter with red accent line, slatted ducts, diamond-mesh air intakes, red 'H' badge above a new air vent at the nose of the car, new air intake on the bonnet, an air scoop sited centrally in a trapezoidal recess, smoked lenses for the LED headlights and indicators and side repeaters, carbon fibre side skirts, 20-inch piano black alloy wheels with red accents, 245/30 R20 high-performance tyres, enlarged wheel arches, a carbon fibre diffuser which runs below the wider rear bumper, 3 tailpipes with a pair of directional strakes at each side, central tailpipe in bright metallic red and unique peaks at the roof flanks that point backwards.

The FK8 Civic Type R uses the same engine, a turbocharged inline-4, from its predecessor but power has increased to 320 PS (235 kW; 316 hp) in the European and Japanese version but remains the same 310 PS (228 kW; 306 hp) in other markets. The engine is mated to a close ratio 6-speed manual transmission continuing the tradition of its predecessors with limited slip differential as standard. The aerodynamic elements increase downforce even further as compared to the outgoing model. The FK8 has a top speed of 272 km/h (169 mph) making it the fastest Civic Type R model to date.

Asphalt 9: Legends

The Honda Civic Type-R was added in the Grand Prix Update as a high-end Class D car with the following rank statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1,243 (30Blueprint rare a9 30)
  • 1* rank: 1,578
  • 2* rank: 1,951 (23Blueprint rare a9 23)
  • 3* rank: 2,334 (33Blueprint rare a9 33)
  • 4* rank: 2,698 (42Blueprint rare a9 42)

Performance

The Honda Civic Type-R's biggest advantage is its acceleration. With an acceleration stat of over 82 at max, it features rapid acceleration. It also features average handling and nitro efficiency. However, its biggest weakness is its top speed. It has a low top speed, failing to reach above 300 kph even at max. Because of its low speed, it is often overshadowed in favor of the TVR Griffith, Porsche 911 Targa 4S, Mazda Furai, and even the Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack
