If the recent Civic Coupe spy photos didn’t do it for you, then check out these shots of the upcoming Honda Civic Type R that was caught testing in southern Europe.

This left-hand drive prototype was spotted in all of its camouflaged glory, previewing the upcoming hot hatch from Honda. Powered by a turbocharged VTEC 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the Civic Type R will make 305 hp and can hit 62 mph in just 5.7 seconds. It also boasts a record-setting Nurburgring lap time of just 7:50, the fastest time ever recorded for a front-wheel-drive car.
