    I'd expected a power bump. 20" wheels is disappointing as well. I thought it would be lower than 35k. More like 32-33k.

    actualy its 316hp

    from vtec.net "NOTE: American Honda also wanted to point out to us that the engine in the US-market Civic Type R will be identical to the one that will be announced for the European market. They point this out because apparently the Euro version will be rated at 320ps, which works out to about 316 hp in English units. They say the discrepancy is strictly related to the differences between US and European testing protocols."

    That weight doesn't seem accurate. The UK CTR is 3070lbs. Not sure how it could lose 280lbs.

    2800lbs just doesn't seem at all possible... I'm going with Inside Lane on real numbers so far.

    Admin, any details on the bolt pattern, width, and offset of the wheels? I might sell the 20's and downgrade to 19's with an aftermarket wheel.

    The Honda UK and Honda Civic Type R Facebook page says 320PS so 316HP is the correct number.

    R&T says 15lb lighter than base hatchback which is comes up as 2815lbs so that seems to be where the 2800lb number is coming from. If so that is bad ass. Let's hope!
