“The Civic Type R has long been forbidden fruit for enthusiasts in the U.S., so we thought it would be fun to offer one lucky customer a shot at owning the first of its kind in America while benefiting the leading nonprofit solely dedicated to finding a cure for childhood brain tumors, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president, automobile division, American Honda Motor Co.
The Civic Type R makes 306 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 2.0-liter engine, powering the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission. The car certainly has the performance chops. Last October, the car set the front-wheel-drive Nürburgring lap record of 7 minutes, 43.8 seconds. The styling might be a too Fast ‘n’ Furious for some, but the Type R is setting itself up to be a real winner when compared to the competition.
