For over a decade, Honda has neglected to bring any iteration of the Civic Type-R to North America.
With the debut of the Honda Civic Type R Concept at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, one enthusiast is hoping to change the Japanese automaker’s mind by starting an online petition to bring the turbocharged hatchback to North America. Unfortunately for Nikos Stoufis, the man behind the petition, it won’t be as simple as he hopes.
The Civic Type R Concept shown at the Geneva Motor Show is based on a body style that isn’t sold in North America. It would probably be prohibitively expensive for Honda to adapt the car to meet U.S. specifications. Currently, the petition has over 9,000 supporters.
