European Honda Civic hatchback in BTCC 2012 livery

Honda Yuasa Racing has revealed its 2012 British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) car in full livery. It will be driven by Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden, with the former defending his BTCC title. The car will test for the first time in public next week at Silverstone.

The BTCC car is based on the ninth-generation “FB” European Honda Civic Hatchback. The made-in-England five-door hatch made its world debut at last year’s Frankfurt show.

In the UK, the latest Civic is available with three engine options – a 1.4L i-VTEC, 1.8L i-VTEC and a 2.2L i-DTEC diesel. Only the higher powered petrol engine can be had with a five-speed automatic, the rest are exclusively paired with a six-speed manual.
