Honda Teases Manic Civic Type R Concept for Geneva

America missed the last version. Can we get this one?

Last month, we spotlighted the beastly Civic Type R, thedefinition of a hot hatch and one that America sadly missed out on. Now, Hondais teasing the next generation of this award-winning animal, set for a debut inGeneva next month. This appetizing image is enough to make us beg for more, andwe can’t wait for the car’s official reveal to start asking Honda if it willfinally bring it to the US?

The last generation was a hit in Europe and Japan, roaringthrough there with 198 horsepower and 142 lb-ft of torque. Honda promises thatthe next generation, a concept for now, will be the “racing car for the road”,and so we expect even higher performance numbers and even more opportunitiesfor success in America. At the moment, Honda is only hinting that it has targetnumbers of 275 horsepower and 0-62 mph times of just six seconds.
