The Civic Type R has  a beautiful appearance at a glance. Ever piece of the exterior is designed with a strategic purpose in mind. The body itself was designed to increase the cars fluidity which would reduce friction and increase speed. The hood scoop was designed to cool the engine faster while driving at higher speeds. Since this car was designed for speed an underbody spoiler kit was installed which provides more airflow to the rear which provides maximum downforce and grip which allows for maximum stabilization when driving at high speeds. Even the wing spoiler helps to create even more downforce. All put together they help to make the Honda Civic Type R truly an extremely fun car to hit the road in.
