It looks like a Global Rally Cross competitor... not really a road course car.

I'd pick one of these up as the DD for the Evo in a second. I think that's a badass car.

I can not wait to see the mods that come out for this, stock turbo, yeah you can deff see that being swapped up to something even bigger, wouldn't surprise me to see these easily achieve 500hp+ with minor modifications. Regardless, I can't wait to see one of these on the roads here.

Well it also says concept. We know the production cars are usually pretty far off as far as looks go.

Do me a favor.From now on don't care what other people think about your car. Do what YOU want to your car. Who gives a damn what other people think about it.

K series already does 500 hp pretty reliably. Amazing engines.

This is one of those "you're doomed if you do, doomed if you don't" moments. If you do release and it kicks ass, it's a front wheel drive toy racer. If you don't, well "you used to be cool Honda".

I'm looking forward to it because it'll make the current hot hatches a bit worried. VWs can go back to it's "Yeah well.. my interior's better" excuses

I'd never buy a re-released Integra anyway, didn't feel the need to go to an RSX. However, I'd def consider going to a hot hatch as a daily. Seeing as how well the EP3 (non CTR) drives, I can only expect good things out of this.

Its kinda ugly but i think it was designed after many other current vehicle designs. Its like the hondas are getting fatter and fatter! It won't be long before someone swaps one of these motors in a civic or a integra.

It won't be in america I don't think.. Sad that we don't get any of the cool stuff that europe does.

I would never accept that from my paint guy..

If it comes exactly like the Euro/Japan spec ones and not a dumbed down Civic Si, I'll get one. I'm hoping it doesn't cost much more than a Fo'ST, MS3, GTi, and the other hot hatches.

I wish they'd come out with a Abarth/Fi'ST competitor as well. Fit Si or Type R haha.

I also heard many good reviews about New Civic Type R . It would be a pitty if we don't have it here in US. Why should Europe have all the fun?

Meh ... I agree, the back end is hideous - but as mentioned it is a concept car. The front is ok I guess, but overall it looks like a Focus clone. It's not streamlined like a Teg. Heck, I felt that the RXS was too tall and fat for that matter.

It's all academic for us here in the USA anyway though, I agree with the others - it'll never make it to our shores as it will be released in Japan and Europe. Bummer too, it'd be kinda cool to see someone shoehorn that engine into a 3rd Gen Teg.

A shame about Lotus as well. The Elise is really the only car that I can think of that I would buy if for some reason I had to replace the GSR.

This won't be priced anywhere near Honda USA prices. I bet it's 45,000 special order only. For that price. I want something outrageous looking! The new type r civic looks like nothing on the market. Awesome in my eyes!!!

If/when USA gets a release date. I'll have money waiting for the deposit. As long as it gets that crazy motor the Japanese and UK guys get.

$30,000 pounds. Canada is getting one, so that's high hopes of us getting one.
