If true would it not be a 1.6- or just another ploy to sell the car!

Who on earth would want livery on their car?

If it gets into a dent, yup i can see it now,
The livery is a little messy.
Back to the shop for rework.

And 150HP?

Rally cars have at least 300HP and are AWD too.

I agree its pointless with the same engine as the standard car.

If they'd boosted it to say 200BHP as we've seen people on here do with the diesel then you'd have had a derv with Type R performance and yep you could have called it a WTCC special edition and gained respect for producing something special.

As it is, it seems to be around 28K for a standard Civic + stickers and I'm guessing its not based on the EX GT version in fully loaded spec, which makes thos stickers v expensive bits of vinyl.

WTCC (world touring car championship) cars have approx 300bhp and either front or rear wheel drive.
