2007 Honda Civic Type R

http://www.caranddriver.com/autoshow...ic-type-r.html

It was a bone of contention that the U.S. missed out on the most potent version of the last Honda Civic the 197-hp three-door Type R. And it seems unlikely that the Type R version of the new Civic will make to our shores because it will be built exclusively at the Honda plant in Swindon, England and uses the three-door body which is not offered in the U.S. The new Type R was presented in vivid yellow as a concept car, simply because the production version will not be available in Europe until the end of this year, after lesser three-door versions have appeared. The power supply is unchanged a high-revving but naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine.







I like it

I really, really like the current gen 3 and 5 door civics. Honda's taking a page from Ford and laying the hate on the US market.

I believe they are going to do that. But the back look a lot like Honda Insight, but better.
