Listen to the New Civic Type R Rev its Turbo Engine


Honda is indulging our ears with a new video that reveals how the upcoming Civic Type R will sound. 

The entire clip showcases the new car with plenty of flashy editing and camera work, but if you’re here to hear, skip straight to the 0:48 second mark. The little 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine definitely has some bark to back up its bite, which amounts to 306 horsepower.

All the power is sent through a six-speed manual transmission that features rev matching downshifts and short throws. Plenty of other speed-focused upgrades are present too, like a light weight flywheel, four-wheel adaptive suspension, a helical limited-slip front differential and more.

Pricing for the car will start in the mid-$30,000 range and it will go on sale in the U.S. in late Spring.
