HONDA CIVIC WTCC RACE CAR
Honda shows off the new Civic WTCC Race Car
Honda showcases the new Civic WTCC Race Car with its racing engine, the HR412E at the Paris Motor Show. The car will compete in the 2013 FIA World Touring Car Championship.
For this project, Honda has formed a joint partnership with Mugen and J.A.S. Motorsport. Mugen will manufacture a bespoke racing engine developed by Honda R&D and will maintain the engine in every race along with the team.
J.A.S. Motorsport will develop the race car, using the new Honda Civic 5-door produced in Honda's manufacturing plant located in Swindon, UK.
Developed at Honda's R&D centre in Tochigi, Japan, the HR412E is a completely bespoke 1.6-litre 4 cylinder direct injection turbo-charged petrol engine, fully conforming to FIA regulations for the WTCC.
Commenting on the announcement, Daisuke Horiuchi, the WTCC Development Project Leader at Honda R&D said:
"In the continuous technological development of an internal combustion engine, the thermal efficiency is the essential key for improvement. And a race engine is not an exception. This HR412E was born from such thought process: aiming for higher efficiency.
The HR412E heralds a new generation of high performance racing engines from Honda. All engineers at the R&D centre in Tochigi have worked hard to develop a race engine that will deliver great driveability to our racing drivers, with no compromise on peak power performance.
We believe the innovations that have led to this revolutionary engine will also lead to benefits beyond the race track, helping us to further increase the efficiency of our road car engines."
The engine has been delivered to the J.A.S. Motorsport workshop in Milan, Italy, where the Civic WTCC is being developed, and successfully passed all initial tests.
The news follows the recent naming of Honda's works team drivers in the the FIA World Touring Car Championship - Italian Gabriele Tarquini and Portuguese Tiago Monteiro.
Honda will enter the WTCC as early as this season with one car. Behind the wheel of the Civic WTCC will be ex-Formula One driver Tiago Monteiro, who will compete in three races, starting at Suzuka in October 2012. Honda R&D and Mugen will provide trackside support to the team.
Both drivers will compete in the full FIA World Touring Car Championship in 2013.
Racing has always been a fundamental element of Honda's DNA . In the late 1950s Honda first entered the Isle of man T.T and then Formula 1 in the 1960s. The FIA WTCC is the next chapter in Honda's on-going commitment to world motor sport and provides a perfect platform to demonstrate its racing spirit to Honda's numerous fans around the world.

2014 HONDA EURO CIVIC 1.6 i-DTEC
Honda Civic all'arrembaggio. E' questo ciò che potremmo dire dopo aver
provato la Civic con il nuovo motore 1.6 diesel. L'avevamo provata in
versione 2.2 i-DTEC la scorsa estate, dove avevamo iniziato a prendere
confidenza con la nona generazione della sempre verde giapponese.
Design assolutamente personale con linee riprese dal settore aeronautico,
la Civic non ammette mezze misure. Il look futuristico può piacere o meno,
in ogni caso non lascia indifferenti. Ben proporzionata, con quel tocco di
sana follia che contraddistingue i progettisti del sol levante: al frontale
basso e sportivo fa da contraltare il posteriore alto e tondeggiante. Per
chi deve verificare la "compatibilità" con il proprio garage, le misure
non cambiano: lunga 4.285 millimetri, larga 1770 ed alta 1472, antenna
Il motore non è l'unica novità tecnica presente sulla nuova Civic i-DTEC
da 1,6 litri. Su questo modello fa l'esordio un nuovo cambio completamente
riprogettato, più leggero e compatto. Il cambio manuale a 6 marce è più
leggero di 7 kg rispetto al cambio della i-DTEC da 2,2 litri e consente al
motore di sviluppare una coppia massima di 300 Nm, secondo quanto dichiara
la casa. Aumenta così l'efficienza del sistema di trasmissione ed il
cambio marcia risulta più scorrevole e preciso.
Sotto il cofano della Civic batte un cuore tutto nuovo. Il 1.6 litri i-DTEC
è infatti il primo motore della serie Honda Earth Dreams Technology ad
essere lanciato in Europa. 120 CV di potenza massima dichiarata con coppia
di 300 Nm @ 2000 giri minuto, ed emissioni di CO2 di 94 gr/km, sono i dati
con i quali si presenta al pubblico. Non solo Civic: il motore diesel 1.6
litri i-DTEC verrà installato anche sul nuovo CR-V durante il 2013, e la
filosofia Earth Dreams Technology sarà applicata in futuro su tutte le
Progettato specificamente per il mercato europeo per rispondere alla
crescente domanda di motori diesel a basse emissioni, il nuovo 1.6 i-DTEC
sarà costruito presso lo stabilimento Honda di Swindon nel Regno Unito.
Per capire l'importanza che il diesel riveste nei piani strategici Honda,
basti pensare che è stata aperta una nuova linea di produzione in grado di
produrre fino a 500 motori al giorno su un programma di due turni: 1 motore
ogni 138 secondi. La nuova linea produrrà sia il nuovo motore 1.6 litri
i-DTEC sia l'attuale motore 2.2 litri i-DTEC.
Il nuovo 1.6 litri i-DTEC è formato da una testata in alluminio e un
monoblocco aperto, anch'esso in alluminio. Pesa 47kg in meno rispetto al
motore 2.2 litri i-DTEC. Tutti i singoli componenti sono stati riprogettati
per ridurre al minimo sia il peso sia le dimensioni. Lo spessore delle
pareti del cilindro è stato ridotto a 8 mm, rispetto ai 9 mm del 2.2 litri
i-DTEC, nello stesso tempo sono stati utilizzati pistoni e bielle più
L'obiettivo principale per gli ingegneri sviluppatori Honda è stato quello
di ridurre l'attrito meccanico del motore 1.6 litri i-DTEC a livelli
equivalenti a quelli di un motore a benzina. Secondo quanto dichiara Honda,
a 1500 giri il 1.6 litri i-DTEC ha circa il 40% i meno di attrito meccanico
rispetto al 2.2 litri i-DTEC.
La quarta generazione di turbocompressori Garrett è dotata di turbina a
geometria variabile e la sua velocità di rotazione è controllata con
precisione dai componenti elettronici della vettura, riducendo così al
minimo il ritardo della turbina e fornendo una combinazione ottimale di
spinta ai bassi e medi regimi di giri, con prestazioni ad alta velocità.
Il turbo ha una pressione di spinta
massima di 1.5 bar.
Il motore 1.6 i-DTEC utilizza un sistema di iniezione solenoide Bosch che
è in grado di funzionare all'alta pressione di 1800bar. Il carburante
viene iniettato ad una velocità maggiore e l'atomizzazione del getto di
carburante è più accurata. Questo migliora la miscelazione del
combustibile con l'aria, risultando in una combustione più pulita ed
efficiente, che contribuisce ad ottenere emissioni e consumi di carburante
Gli ingegneri hanno lavorato anche per migliorare il rendimento volumetrico
dei cilindri, usando delle luci di aspirazione ad alta portata e alta turbolenza che controllano in modo preciso
il processo di combustione per ridurre punti caldi ed emissioni
indesiderate. Il flusso d'aria del motore viene gestito tramite un sistema
EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation), che
funziona a bassa e alta pressione per ridurre le emissioni di NOx.

Background and Research
The current Civic originally launched in 2006 saw a change in the type of
layout approach with the development of a unique platform based on a
"centre tank" layout designed to offer practical benefits such as large
cabin space meeting the needs of Europe's "C" category customers. The Civic
was designed and developed for the European market receiving positive
feedback in areas such as design and versatility/practicality which have
helped define the current Civic as having 'road presence' with its
'futuristic looks;' and having a 'multi-purpose' function with the large
boot space and multiple seat arrangements offered by the 'magic seats'.
As research commenced, the development team for the new Civic team
considered these key milestones achieved with the current Civic and opted
to maintain and even look to enhance the current Civic model qualities. The
team wanted to create a new emotional design with the ability to surprise
and provide the unexpected in terms of roominess and other practical
features whilst also improving the visibility and widening the field of
vision to enhance the overall ownership experience.
The current Civic had already achieved superior interior space with
matching trunk capacity among its competitors. Focus now was on maintaining
this class leading interior space whilst improving the overall packaging
and space efficiency.
This would lead to a new exterior design, improved aerodynamic performance,
reducing weight that play a role in raising the car's overall performance
Focused research was conducted to determine the latest and most important
requirements for the European market. European and Japanese designers and
engineers worked closely together throughout the development process.
Testing was carried out first in Japan and then repeatedly in Europe to
ensure suitability for the world's most demanding C-segment customers.
