Honda Civic Type R Prototype, 2016 Paris auto show
Ram showed off the Rebel TRX concept; Honda unveiled a prototype of the Civic Type R; and Land Rover took the wraps off the 2017 Discovery. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.
Ram said it wouldn't do a Hellcat-powered pickup truck, but that didn't stop it from shoving the famous supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine into a concept dubbed the Rebel TRX. It's an off-road concept that has off-the-shelf parts, which makes it seem ready to do battle with the new 2017 Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] F-150 Raptor. Lord we hope it happens.
Audi finally delivered with the unveiling of the new RS 3 compact sports sedan. Powered by a turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-5, the new RS 3 should be the pocket rocket fans of the rings desire, if they need four doors. Otherwise you could just buy the new TT RS, of course.
We drove the 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo. While you'll have to read our first drive report to find out the details, we will tell you it has a turbo inline-4, and you can get a manual transmission if you want to #GiveAShift.
The long awaited Honda Civic Type R is nearly here, and the Japanese automaker gave us a look at the car in prototype form at the 2016 Paris auto show this week. With a hood scoop, flared fender, massive wing, and three exhaust tips, it looks nothing short of an extra for the next Fast and Furious movie.
Land Rover has finally brought back the Discovery nameplate with its LR4 replacement. Featuring three rows, more off-road capability than you really need to get to Starbucks, and a gorgeous design, the new 2017 Land Rover Discovery is a vehicle we can't wait to test.
