    I think the car looks even better when you see and hear it in the video. The rear lights that blend into the huge rear wing is pure genius. Going to be a nightmare to fix if it goes wrong though.

    Er 2 litre VTEC turbo and 290 ponies. The fact that its a Civic has nothing to do with it. The Abarth 500 is just a tuned Fiat 500 with a body kit. And yet the 595 is over 20K with a few options. But it only has a 1.4 and just over 160 bhp. So as Abarth owners I don't think we can start accusing other manufacturers of charging a lot for their cars.
    I only spent £11k. If I spend £30k I wont be buying a Civic. An Evo 10 FQ would leave it standing.

    I do agree though that the A500's are expensive new for what you get. That's why these days I always buy a year or two old. Don't get me wrong either, I like the Type R, I just think there are better performance options. :-)

    Well the WRX STI is about the same price and would be much faster. But its not all about performance is it. If it was then nobody would buy an Abarth because they aren't the fastest or cheapest either. I dont think the new Type R will be slow, it will be pretty quick and with looks to die for.

    Quality video, very clever :).

    Im not a fan of jap cars except the odd few.I love the back of it with that epic spoiler with the lights but the rest of it (design wise) isnt for me.I can see it being a popular car  though for somebody who is into them sort of cars like the focus rS and gold r32s etc.I personally wouldnt buy it if i could but i can see what the appeal is and im sure itl be a big seller.30k sounds about right.

    If it  does sound like that then phwoarrr what a noise!
    Now with added monza fun :P

    Keeping an eye on these,2 litre VTEC turbo,290 bhp and that rear wing. Only thing that lets it down is its still supposed to be FWD. Will be looking out for the new Focus RS as well,if they ever make it. I would love Abarth to bring out another Punto sized car with 300 ponies but I cant see it. And as for the price just think about the price of the 695.
    It is FWD. It's aimed at setting a new FWD nurburgring record beating the leon cupra and megane RS. #Under8

    I work for Honda In the Civic Type R bill of materials team, the car you see in the advert is not a production model.
    :( sorry to bust your bubbles,

    Car is very very fast though :)

    I assumed as much being labelled a 'concept'. Plus I have seen the production version in disguise ;)

    My thoughts also, it was a unique part to the flagship model and a great selling point!!

    Sounds awsome though :)
