Honda has officially pull the wraps off the 2014 Civic hatchback race car which will compete in this year’s WTCC, and we must admit that it does look quite impressive.
The Japanese based automaker’s Honda newest creation is actually made by its motorsport division and it’s a race car based on the Civic hatchback. The model in question will be competing this year in the WTCC (World Touring Car Championship) and it can be seen, in the images posted below, at the Aragon track in Spain, wearing some camouflage on its body.
Even if it has been fitted with some camouflage, the brand new 2014 Honda Civic WTCC is still showing us its huge rear spoiler and its beefier wheel arch extensions, which are part of the wide body kit. We can also get to see the larger wheels, along with some other tweaks. Behind the wheel of the race car will be Tiago Monteiro, who will be helped by Gabriele Tarquini, from the JAS Motorsport team. The carmaker will race this vehicle within the Castrol Honda World Touring Car Team with two models. More details on the racer will probably be announced once it will be making its racing debut.
