The Honda Civic Type R is already a Performance Car of The Year and Bang For Your Bucks champion, so it hardly wants for improvement. "We have also had a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate what can be done with a road auto".

Honda UK provided both companies with pre-production versions of the Swindon-built hot hatch to create their ultimate Civic Type R vision. This particular build uses the stock Type R powertrain, so it's still powered by the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

Changes include a Superchips ECU, an ITG induction system, a PWR intercooler, a Dream sports catalytic converter and a Scorpion exhaust, altogether providing a 25% performance boost.

"We're familiar with the race-winning FK8, however we wanted to showcase what can be extracted from the vehicle with just a few light modifications", said James Rodgers, team manager at Team Dynamics. We are just trying to think of how much would Ralph push the road-spec Type R to make it a more convincing safari vehicle.

While the Type OveRland is a purely a concept, it says it'll consider "one-off" versions for "discerning" customers. The result is this Civic Type OveRland.

All that power still goes through the front wheels, so to keep the auto on the road there are Eibach Pro performance springs, adjustable anti-roll bars and rear camber arms and Goodridge stainless performance brake hoses.

The OveRland draws huge inspiration from models from the world of rally.
