Civic Type-R Turbo to have 280+ hp quote:

As the the hot hatch market is starting to heat up, Honda is finally showing us the hotly anticipated next generation Civic Type R. The car was revealed today in near production ready form, without any camouflage.

The new Type R shares all of its bodywork with the standard European Civic hatchback. Instead of flaring the bumpers and wings, the added bolt-on flared elements, giving it the look of a racing car. A big rear wing and four very large exhaust pipes ensure nobody will ever be able to ignore this car.

While the Golf GTI or Ford Focus R have been designed to be more mainstream than ever, the new Type R is as ugly as a Subaru. We don't yet know how close the full production model will come to this one, but as you can see, the plastic surgery has been done by a butcher.

Together with lots of photos of the car, Honda also revealed a brand new engine, the so called 2.0 VTEC TURBO. This all-new unit was developed under the Earth Dreams technology initiative. Unlike the old Civic Type R, which only has a naturally aspirated, 200 hp 2-liter, this new turbo unit has almost class-leading output. Over 280 hp will be honed by what will most likely be a limited slip differential.

All that power and the crazy bodywork are there for a reason: Honda is going after the FWD production car lap record at the Nurburgring, which is currently held by Renault's Megane RS 265 Trophy.

Speaking during recent testing at the Nurburgring, Honda’s WTCC driver Gabriele Tarquini, gave his first driving impressions: "The car and the characteristics of the car were fantastic. I was really impressed by the power and the torque of the engine but also by the set-up they achieved…The car is very pointed on the front and very fast to change direction’. ‘This car is very close to my racing car and you can feel very well the DNA of Type R."

Hell no. They might bump up the HP of the current Si by about 20, and that's it. This IS Honda we're talking about

Too bad we didn't get this wave in the early 90's instead, damn the Americans and their influence on engine selections for North America.

You realize that Ford, Chrysler, GM and Mazda all came out with I4 turbo cars in the early-mid 2000s, half of which are still being produced.

Of course but nowhere near the availability/selection of what the EU and JDM markets had in the 90s.

looks like just a heatshield over the turbine housing and dp which is normal. as long as the hotside/manifold/dp/head are not cast together or something weird, should be lots of options.

I'll believe it when I see it. A near 300 HP production civic from Honda? Yea, right. Even if it does come out, it'll be another model we don't get to see in North America like the previous generations.

I think you can blame cheap gasoline for that. There's a win-lose in there somewhere.
