Swindon, England - Unless you’re a boy racer with a dirt bike and a plumbing business, chances are you’ve never fantasized about a bakkie version of the Honda Civic Type R.
Well, now Honda’s UK division has unleashed the Civic Type R Pickup Truck concept, created for the annual SMMT Test Day - which is a look-and-drive motor show of sorts for British journalists.
The brutal bakkie was designed and built by the product engineering department at Honda’s Swindon factory.
The front half of this Honda, codenamed Project P, is as per the road car - complete with its 228kW/400Nm 2-litre turbopetrol engine that can get it from zero to 100km/h in just six seconds.
The back half, as you can see, has been reimagined for load lugging, although it’s not exactly going to swallow that big cupboard that your girlfriend’s cousin has been nagging you for the last year to help shift across town.
