Towards the end of last year we got our hands on some photos of a Honda Civic Type R concept that had fans begging the Japanese auto maker to put it in production. And today we get the final product – our first look at the 2016 Honda Civic Type R.

On the outside, it shares a lot of similarities with the aforementioned concept including an aggressive body kit complete with a large rear diffuser and oversized spoiler out back. But let’s get to the good stuff shall we? Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0-liter VTEC engine making 306 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, helping the brand’s flagship model sprint to 60 miles per hour in 5.7 seconds from a dead stop. Other updates include a Dual Axis Strut suspension, adaptive dampers, electronic steering, and a revamped +R driving mode. All of these updates helped the sports car clock a 7-minute 53.63-second lap at Nurburgring, and a top speed of 167 mph.
