Dunno if this was posted somewhere, but it's old news anyway. I didn't even realize it could be accepted in WRC since they have to run what comes from the factory. I thought it was strictly AWD.

powers from k20a.org

Dear Customer,

As you may know, the NEW HONDA CIVIC TYPE R has been presented and it will be on display at the Honda stand at the Mondial de l'Automobil in Paris until October,15.

While the first prototype is being visited by thousands of enthusiastic visitors, JAS Motorsport is completing the first running Rally car which will go through severe development tests sessions, aiming to develop the performance and the reliability, in view of the FIA homologation in Gr.A and Gr.N, active as of April,1,2007

Today JAS Motorsport is pleased to announce the technical contents and the pricing of the competition kit of the Gr.A version: this has been developed in accordance to the future FIA Gr.R3 regulations which will replace Gr.A starting from January,1,2008 and Gr.N (supposedly) from 2010.
This means that the purchasers of the new Type R and the JAS Kit can participate to their championship in Gr.A in 2007 and then switch to Gr.R in 2008 with marginal extra costs to upgrade their cars to Gr.R3.

JAS Motorsport offer to their Customers the following purchasing options:

1- Individual parts (e.g. you can pick and buy any single part in the list)
2- Competition KIT (all parts indicated in the columns 'KIT') with an extra, significant, discount
3- Competition KIT + Donor car, (A FEW CARS ARE AVAILABLE WITHIN JANUARY 2007) - price of donor car to be assigned)
4- JAS made, turn-key, Rally cars (quotations upon request)

For those customers who will place an order within October, 31, JAS have planned an extra discount. Early purchase orders in fact will let us schedule the production more efficiently and cost effectively.

As you may realize, the kit includes the majority of parts required to upgrade the road car into a race car.

The new FIA Gr.R regulations have been conceived for a drastic cost limitation, taking advantage of mass-production parts and imposing, for the first time, the concept of the 'maximum allowed price'. That is why our Customers can buy a real race car for such attractive conditions

The New Type R Gr.A/Gr.R3 will certainly be the car-to-beat in Rally racing, thanks to the new regulations which will impose the same weight to all cars, while all strong points of the well known Type R engine (VTEC, VTC, outstanding output) will be maintaned. We expect the Civic to perform as good or better than a Super 1600, while costing half as much.

The new Type R will be also available upon request for circuit racing, in Gr.N, Gr.A or FIA SUPERPRODUCTION or Endurance

I look forward to be hearing from you soon, enjoy racing with the NEW HONDA CIVIC TYPE R

Sincerely Yours
Stefano Fini







Interesting to note they're running a throttle cable and what looks like, a MAP delete setup.

The drivetrain is not limited to modification in WRC I think, cause I remember there used to be Hyundai Tiburon running in the WRC, and Pugeot 306 are not AWD out of the factory.
