246 mph? What you smokin.

P.S. That Type R is for the European market only. The JDM Type R is a sedan.

kinda looks like a mix between the SI coupe from a few years back and last years SI, cant put my finger on why but for some reason really dont like the new honda front ends
146 top speed is impressive but 240 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 160lb-ft of torque at 7,000rpm is ridiculous what happened to the low end torque and horsepower, who wants to constintly run the engine up to 8,000 just to get up to speed quickly on the highway
but it does have twin exhaust and a really big wing ahhh the boy racer is back

I like the hatchbacks...the new US coupes look absolutely horrid, IMO. Very weird proportions.

^^^ Well I was stuck on the MPH stats on the Type R.... I had read both articles. So knock it off chuckle-head's!

having a 146mph top speed is nice for the autobahn, but otherwise i'd rather it have shorter gearing for quicker acceleration. driving in a properly modded civic, with a 4.9 final drive on an already short geared tranny is awesome. hopefully they have 5 short gears, and a long 6th for cruising and saving gas (doubt it though).
