New Civic Type R sees light in Japan

Honda launches the Civic Type R sedan in Japan – Autoblog

Come Friday, March 30, the new Civic Type R will go on sale in Japan. Based on the current Civic 4-door, the Type R is powered by a screaming, normally aspirated 2.0-liter four cylinder (K20A) that eclipses 100 hp/liter, producing around 225 ponies at 8,000 rpm and 159 lb-ft of torque at 6,100 rpm.. A six-speed manual transmission feeds power to the front wheels — 18-inch units shod with a set of Bridgestone Potenzas.
