GENEVA, Switzerland - Honda has presented an exclusive preview of its all-new Civic Type R and Honda NSX performance cars and of the 2015 McLaren-Honda Formula 1 car.

As Honda and McLaren reunite to bring one of Formula 1’s most famous partnerships back to the grid at the season-opener in Melbourne on March 15 2015, Jenson Button helped present the 2015 McLaren-Honda MP4-30 Formula 1 race car.

The Honda NSX was displayed ahead of its European show debut. It was designed from a clean sheet with an all-wheel-drive hybrid powertrain, multi-material space frame chassis and dynamic set-up. It claims to be the world's most technologically advanced supercar - but maybe the release was written before the BMW i8 was released... time will tell.

RACE CAR FOR ROAD

Chief development engineer Ted Klaus said: “We've strained every ounce of our engineering capability to ensure Honda captivates the inner driving hero in us all. With the NSX, Honda has a new top-of-the-class, technologically innovative supercar for the modern era that is helping reignite Honda as an exciting brand.”

People have also seen the all-new Civic Type R, called by the engineers "the race car for the road". They say it's the most extreme Type R yet built.

A world-first application of Honda’s new two-litre VTEC turbo engine, styling and new chassis technologies combine in the new Civic Type R, Honda says, to deliver one of the most immersive and rewarding driving experiences available in any sector.

The 2015 Geneva auto show heralds the start of an exciting new era for Honda, as every model in the brand’s European line-up will be new or refreshed in 2015. Alongside Honda’s all-new performance cars for road and track, Honda will also reveal the European specification of the all new HR-V crossover and Jazz small car, as well as the FCV Concept fuel-cell car.
