Honda is developing the Civic Type-R diesel

Kenichi Nagahiro, the top powertrain engineer at Honda announced the company is working on the Civic Type-R – diesel-powered. `As long as it is in keeping with the Type-R brand we will do it. But high revving has to be part of it and that`s what we`re working on`.

Rumors say that this Type R D model will run by the strongest variant of next year`s brand new 2.2-litre diesel; will be debuted in the new Accord. Having at least 180bhp with 320lb ft of torque.
