2017 Honda Civic Type R

Stock Honda vehicles are not typically thought of as being highly lusted after, at least here in the U.S. The brand appears more focused on giving us a car that’s reliable in the long-term, rather than offering us any of the fun ones we see across the pond. So you can imagine our surprise when Honda Motor Co. revealed a prototype of something that, until now, has never graced American shores in a production release: Honda’s Civic Type R.

The newly introduced sporty sedan has a much more aggressive silhouette than its basic brethren, resembling something you might actually see racing alongside a Subaru WRX STI – maybe even with Vin Diesel behind the wheel. The exterior, which has been modified from previous models to be more “muscular” and aerodynamic, is wrapped with a highly-reflective, finely-grained, brushed aluminum finish that is unique to this model. Other features include a carbon fiber splitter and side skirts, diamond-mesh air intake inserts, 20-inch wheels with 245-section performance tires, and triple functional tailpipes. No word yet on the equipment beneath the hood, but if it matches the exterior, we are in for a seriously savage machine.
