First Video of 300 HP Honda Civic Type R [Video]
This is the very first clip of the brand new, super hot, very exciting, awesomely cool, exciting as fudge Honda Civic Type R. The new one is supposedly going to be a monster, as company bosses have allowed the minions who make the engine to push it all the way to 300 horsepower. Other reports suggest this uber-hatch will have rear wheel steering, just like the Porsche 911 Turbo.
As you can see from this video, there's nothing understated about the new Type R. It's massively flared wheel arches. It's four exhaust pipes. It's a big wing. It's an awesome Honda.
The only question is, considering there are other 300 horsepower hatches out there, how cheaply can Honda make theirs. Yesterday, we saw that Honda was road-testing this car against the 280 hp Opel Astra OPC and the 350 hp Ford Focus RS500.
