Civic Type R Concept is the Boy Racer’s Wet Dream in Paris

Complete with a wing full of LEDs.

Honda has made some pretty eyebrow-raising claims about the upcoming Civic Type R, which was just revealed in Paris in concept form. The car 276-horsepower car is said to set a new standard, out-performing every previous Type R the company has made, including the last generation of the NSX. All of this performance will be controlled by a “+R” button on the steering wheel, which sets the car into race mode in much the same fashion as similar buttons on other cars.

But the difference will apparently be all the more dramatic in this new Type R. Now all that will be left to do is to get over just how silly it looks. Of course, this is just a concept, and it’s very possible that the production model will be toned down enough that you won’t get a ticket just for thinking about it.
