As if the puddle of drool at the feet of those waiting for the launch of the new Civic Type R isn't big enough, Italy's JAS Motorsport has announced the release of its new customer Civic Type R racecar. Working closely with Honda R&D, JAS has modified the CTR to fulfill international Group N, Group A and Group R racing specifications. It was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in September.

The upgraded engine features re-profiled cams and other internal components, which JAS has previously used in the Nurburgring 24 Hour race. Power is rated well above the stock car's 200 hp. The transmission is a custom-designed 6-speed sequential gearbox. The drivetrain includes reinforced driveshafts and a state-of-the art limited slip differential.

The entire chassis has been tuned for road racing, including custom shocks and suspension components, brakes and roll cage. The body has been lightened with carbon-fiber door panels, dashboard trims and floor panels. JAS Motorsport expects to begin delivering its CTR racecar this spring.

Created exclusively for Japan, the model gets no powertrain upgrades but looks fantastic enough that we don’t really care.
