Yes, this is a Civic Type R pickup truck

Car News One-off Honda Civic Type R Pick Up Revealed in the UK
By Lawrence Adams- 25th May 2018

The car's design looks like an origami experiment that got out of hand, but for some reason there is a charm to it.

Honda is quick to point out that there are no plans to put the pickup into production.

It was only a matter of time before Honda debuted special versions of the Civic Type R, but little did we know the first one would be a pickup.

The pickup we see here has been chopped at the carmaker's United Kingdom factory in Swindon.

What if the Civic Type R came as a pickup? Wonder no more
Honda unveils bizarre Civic Type R pickup truck concept

To create the Project P concept, the team used a pre-production version and adapted the design rearwards from the B-pillars of the vehicle, with sweeping lines from the roofline to the back hiding a flatbed loading area in the centre of the auto where the rear seats and boot space would normally be. The rear seats are now gone, while the flatbed extends into the boot area as well. That's not all because the large rear wing is also retained, and is movable to allow a clear access to the rear of the truck for loading items like Honda lawnmowers.

Project P uses the same powertrain, suspension and gearbox as the Civic Type R road auto, so it's estimated it will complete the 0-62mph sprint in less than six seconds and boast a top speed of more than 165 miles per hour.

Alyn James, project lead for the Type R Pickup, had this to say about their latest project "We have a special projects division at the factory in Swindon and this project was a fantastic opportunity for the team to show just what their creative minds could do". There's even talk of sending it around the Nordschleife for another tenuous Honda front-wheel drive record; most likely wouldn't be the weirdest thing on the track that week. " Instead, he added, the car's wonderful looks would be wasted by making it a mule for "our lawn and garden products as and when required!".
