Honda UK builds a hot hatch bakkie

11 June 2018

If you’re interested in all things motoring, you must have heard about the new Honda Civic Type R…

Normally we wouldn’t cover a hyperhatch, but a few engineers at Honda’s Swindon factory created a Type R bakkie concept. Nope, that’s not a typo. Think of it as the modern interpretation of the Lumina SS Ute.

It gets to 100km/h in less than six seconds and has a top speed of 265km/h.

Honda stated that it has no plans to put it into production, but that it might come in handy over weekend when they have to carry some stuff around.
