Honda Civic Type R Pick Up Concept

Honda's hot hatch gets turned into a powerful pick-up

At the recent SMMT Test Day it was all eyes on Honda as they revealed their new Civic Type R Pickup Truck concept design created by their specialist team in Swindon. With striking yet familiar features, the Pickup was the talk to of the day. To create the unusual concept design the team used a pre-production model to begin with and adapted the design rearwards from the B-pillars of the car.

They retained sweeping lines from the roofline all the way to the back, subtly hiding a flatbed loading area where the rear seats and boot space would normally be - allowing for a pleasant surprise to the onlooker.

Finished in Rallye Red, the concept also retains the iconic rear wing associated with both the FK2 and FK8 Civic Type R, which, in a clever piece of engineering, was made movable to allow direct and unfettered access to the rear of the truck making it an easy access pick-up.

The comments from Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK show their enthusiasm for the project: “This Civic Type R Pickup Truck concept by the special team at our Swindon-based plant demonstrates the passion and commitment of the team there – going above and beyond outside working hours to deliver the final product. There are no plans to put this in to production but we will be using it to transport our lawn and garden products as and when required!”

Although they have given little hope for the car to come to actual fruition any time soon, we would certainly like to see it happen one day!
