Angry 9th GEN CTR! Disappointed!

This is terrible!! 2013 Honda Civic Type R Spy Shots (European Spec)!!! It looks worse then a old boat!! UK & Australia have same car rules, they should do it like Japan so we can drive high revving 225+bhp Hondas!!

Come on!!! You dont seriously believe that its going to look like that do you??!

Honda are never going to drive it around in broad daylight with anything like the body kit/wheels/Type R spec that it will eventually come out with...

That car is cosmetically a regular 9G but the bits you cant see will be more performance based

Its a bit nieve to believe that the car in the picture is going to be Honda's next performance hatch

We're also questioning your intelligence. Though I like how you weren't bothered about that.

According to some of the people in the know that car is suspension testing only.

That is just the 1.8/2.2 with the spoiler taped on that they are using to test the engine and/or suspension at the Nurburgring. No one knows the power yet or the weight for that matter.

I do seem to remember seeing this posted here, though I can't find it in a search.

It's a pointless article anyway, there's no real info there.

Huh amazing, I was more interested in discussing how it may look, perform, handle etc rather then my intelligence. I em not here to argue bullock things, do you have something against me?
