Honda has always built racing variants of its street cars. Even today, that still rings true, as Honda just launched its all-new Civic-based touring car. Built for ORS TC America Series, the new 11th generation Honda Civic Si 2022 features a turbocharged engine and a 6-speed engined manual gearbox collected directly from the tram. Developed in part through HPD’s efforts with the tenth generation Civic Si TCA race car, the new car is built from a white body for maximum performance from day one.

Building from scratch, rather than building from a finished production car, allows Honda to optimize motorsport. The race car lacks a sunroof, never has soundproofing installed in the first place, and is completely devoid of underbody linings and gaskets. This both reduces weight and increases utility as a runner.

In addition to the already powerful turbo engine, HPD adds a custom ECU and a Borla turbo-back exhaust for track performance. The car is also fitted with a set of Bilstein shock absorbers with Eibach springs, large Wilwood brakes and lightweight Momo Etna racing wheels. There’s also an APR rear spoiler to add some downforce and some motorsport touches. Obviously, all the necessary safety equipment is included.

However, the Civic Si TCA won’t be cheap. You can look at something like the current Civic Type R TC for perspective. This monster machine, eligible for the SRO TCR or IMSA TCR classes, will set you back around $ 90,000, which is a little more than the $ 37,890 that Honda charges for a Type R street. You can probably imagine that a TCA car properly configured will be around $ 60,000 at the door. If you want to go fast on a racetrack there are probably faster options for less money, but if you want to get serious about racing you would be hard pressed to build something so competitive for less than that price. in any event.

Honda will be exhibiting the car at SEMA later this month, but I’m sure if you wanted to order one now, you could call HPD and make it happen. The 2022 racing season is just around the corner, so you’ll want to shake it up.
