When the Honda Civic Type R Concept was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, it was no secret that it would be well-received among performance fans. Its sleek, aerodynamic design and 2.0-liter, direct-injection, four cylinder turbo engine wowed the crowd in at the Switzerland event instantly.

To get a better look at it, click on the following video:

As exciting as this vehicle is, it's not something we're going to see here at Lee's Summit Honda or in the states in general. It will launch in Europe next year because it's based on the Civic hatchback used overseas. This saddened many a Honda fan, so much so that there's now a Change.org petition to change that fact.

"...do what's right for the people that believe in the foundation Honda was built upon," petition-maker Nikos Stoufis writes. "The power of dreams."1

Pretty powerful stuff, right? We'll just have to see how it pans out!

If you'd like more information about the brand or the new Honda lineup, you can find everything you need right here in Lees Summit, MO. We look forward to serving you!
