What Is Fernando Alonso Doing With This Honda Civic Type R
Fernando Alonso posted the attached picture on his Instagram page, indicating he recently took delivery of a brand spanking new Honda Civic Type R.
After transferring from Ferrari to McLaren Honda for the 2015 Formula 1, it’s was expected that 34-year-old Fernando Alonso Díaz is now also a representative for McLaren, Honda and Acura. He uploaded a photo on social media with a red Honda Civic Type R with the caption “E voilà”, so this is likely a gift from Honda.
It’s only a temporary vehicle as the double Formula 1 champion has stated his desire at the beginning of this year to get his hands on the not released yet second generation Acura NSX. However, he will have to wait a while longer as the most recent report says Acura has pushed back the supercar’s unveiling until the spring of 2016. This delay was apparently caused by the company’s change of mind to switch from the concept’s naturally aspirated V6 engine to a more potent twin-turbo V6, thus requiring the change to a longitudinal layout which obviously requires more work for the engineers.
