Honda Civic Type R transforms into a pickup truck in a one-off project dubbed Project P

May 28, 2018 | Same topic: Newest & coolest car concepts
The Honda Civic Type R Project P pickup is capable of reaching a max speed of 265 km/h.

When Honda UK brought the pick-up Honda Civic Type R named the Project P to light at the 2018 Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Test Day, the show was totally taken by storm. Interestingly, the model is actually a one-off project by specialist team from Honda of the UK Manufacturing.

The Honda Civic Type R Project P takes the whole new bed design that we see in the B-Pillar. The rear seats and the trunk would now be given room for the flatbed to which the sweeping lines run from the roofline. Its large wing bears a resemblance to the new FK8 Type R. Thanks to this moveable wing, it is easier to load items into the bed.

Using the same engine seen in the Type R, the Project P is capable of 60 mph from rest in less than 6s while reaching a top speed of 165 mph.

The Type R Pickup’s project lead Alyn James had some nice words on their project saying this is a chance for the team to let their creative minds wander. He also added that was also a proof the team wanted to send to Honda to show their passion for creative works. Alyn James even nurtured a plan to bring it to Nurburgring to challenge the record for the fastest FWD pickup truck.
