With the 2014 Paris Motor Show right around the corner, the Japanese auto makers at Honda have given us a sneak peek at the highly anticipated 2015 Honda Civic Type R Concept.

The latest iteration of the Civic sees the brand going all in. While the Type R lineup has always been synonymous with performance, this bad boy takes things to the next level. Powered by a high-revving, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, the 5-door hatchback will put down an impressive 280-horsepower. While 0-60 mph times are unknown at this time, we do know that power will be delivered through a 6-speed manual gearbox. It will also be equipped with a new four-point Adaptive Damper System that automatically adjusts the front and rear suspension to the current road conditions, and the all new +R button. This steering wheel mounted button improves engine responsiveness, torque curve, and steering response. Since powerful front wheel drive vehicles have always posed the issue of torque steer, Honda has also outfitted this thing with a mechanical steer axis to limit this problem while also improving traction. While the 2015 Honda Civic Type R is set to hit the scene next year, don’t count on it coming to the states.
