Doubtful unless they're super committed to it, ever since the first ILX mule shots were seen it's had 3 exhaust pipes... now it's 99% production ready and still has them. Guessing it serves a legit purpose.Do you think it could just be them trolling. Like literally just sticking a piece of pipe there just for the heck of it because they obviously know people will be there taking spy shot photos.
What if they give the Type R a mode select system like the NSX which changes not only the tuning of the car, but the amount of noise it makes.... so they have 3 exhaust ports, used in combination based on comfort, sport and track modes to either quiet or make the car louder?Knowing Honda, I agree that it's probably legit, but with an inline 4, I just can't imagine what it's for. :surprise:
Given the assumed starting price of the CTR, and the fact that it's closest competition all has selectable drive modes it makes even more sense. The current type R has a sport and R mode already i think, but all it changes is steering feel i think. They could definitely stand to put a bit more into the system (like the NSX) and have it change the steering, throttle and ride of the car along with the exhaust sound level.that's actually a great idea since if there's anything they should pull from it's the new NSX. Typically brands do this, it's how they make the most out of a flagship product throughout that trickle down effect.
