2013 Honda Civic Type R is back

Oh my, now that is one good looking Type R. It is faster then the last one and will even have a TURBO. This means that this Civic will be the first mass produced turbo car for Honda, ever. Sources in Japan have said that a Mugen version is also in development.

To put everything into perspective, rather then having a naturally aspirated 2.0L engine, this civic will have a 2.0L Turbo engine. The turbo will give the new Honda Civic Type R more low end torque and a 210bhp that will closely compete with WV’s latest Golf GTI. 0-60 in 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 150mph. Other then that, the car will also come with a lever like 6 speed manual gearbox.

The car will look a lot like what everyone saw at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September but will sport a more aggressive front and back bumper with large meshes, a rear spoiler, rear difuser, big side skirts, sporty interior, and 18″ dark grey alloy wheels.

No word yet on whether we will get this in North America but it is nice to see what others get to enjoy from Honda’s forbidden fruits.

The car is expected to go on sale in 2013 at about $35,000 USD
