For whatever strange reason, North America has never been blessed with receiving any of the Type-R versions of the Honda Civic, and given the huge success of the Integra Type-R, we still sit and scratch our heads on that decision. Nonetheless, the hot Civic Type-R has caught our eyes since day one, and now we’ve got a real look at its potential thank to the genius tuners at J’s Racing.

J’s Racing is notorious for bringing out some of the baddest Hondas over the years, like their trademark Honda S2000 and wickedly-fast Honda Fit. So when we spotted this Euro Honda Civic Type-R we felt inclined to share it.

Hopefully this will inspire some enthusiasts to build their own renditions, but clearly J’s Racing is utilizing this Civic Type-R as a marketing tool for their Hyper ECU line of products. But really, when you take a look at the finished product it’s more or less what we’d expect from any JDM tuner. Clean cut conservative lines, with carbon fiber mixed in and a set of tasteful wheels.

Make sure to check out a video of the car after the break that highlights a lot of the car’s features.
