Hear The New Honda Civic Type R

Honda finally took the wraps off the Civic Type R at the recent Geneva Motor Show, but now we can actually hear what it sounds like. Perhaps it comes as little surprise to learn that the little beast of a compact car sounds as mean as its looks imply.

In a video Honda released online, the company is virtually revealing the car’s exhaust note. The video also goes through several dramatic shots of the car, complete with smoke!

The new Civic Type R is powered by a 306 horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter, exclusively paired to a six-speed manual gearbox. It will go on sale in the U.S. later this year, making it the first Type R to arrive on U.S. shores.
