    I hope it keeps the same driving feel of the previous generation. Just with added performance and a better exhaust note.

    More power, more speed, a manual gearbox, and no massive fake vents! Not to mention it looks like a straight-up Touring Car. This is shaping up to be a legend!

      “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” Acts 2:38-39 KJV

      “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 KJV

      “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” John 3:36 KJV

      “For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” Matthew 6:14-15 KJV

      “And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?” Luke 11:9-13 KJV

      “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.” John 6:35-40 KJV

      “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:28-31 KJV

      “Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 10:32-33 KJV

      “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
      Romans 10:9-13 KJV

      “Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” John 3:5-6 KJV

      “Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” Colossians 1:13-20 KJV

      “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”
      2 Philippians 2:4-11 KJV

      “Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him. After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses. Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matthew 6:1-21 KJV

      “But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” John 20:24-31 KJV

      what I don’t understand is what kind of revealing of nothing Honda pulled?.. and especially why?,
      we all knew how the car will mostly look under the camo… we all knew that it will have the 11th gen interior with the usual red alcantara seats… so, we knew all of that.
      What we wanted to know was how the eff the car drives, how the engine changes feel, how fast is on the ring and similar things… and we get a showroom floor static presemtation… what BS is this?, why are you doing it like this Honda?

    • Jed Masters says:

      there was zero fake vents on the fk2 and fk8 they were all purpose

    • Benjamin Gaunt says:

      I love my 95 hatch and my 98 ex coupe. As much as I want a new car. These older civics still look incredible if painted nice, with a nice set of wheels.

    • Moises Padilla says:

      I don’t care what you say, that’s a nice Accord….

  3. Xavier says:

    I had really high hopes and expectation for the new FL CTR and I’m pleased to say that it meets and exceeds all… and I haven’t even seen a technical review yet. Can’t wait to see it featured on Throttle House or The Grand Tour.

  4. anamnesis says:

    I’m not even much of a Civic fan, but you guys really nailed this one. It’s a step above its competitors design-wise; right up there with the Golf R in terms of the styling not looking like a bunch of gaudy trim pieces tacked on as an afterthought. Well done, Honda.

    • S Williams says:

      @jd same brother. I just wish it didn’t have fake vents. Easy aftermarket fix though. The aggressive styling of the fk8 can’t be beat imo. But that’s a personal preference on style

    • Christian Tan says:

      Despite being a German car nut, I understand the Japanese; well. I say that this car wipes the floor with any and every performance golf

    • Martin Ivanov says:

      golf 8 looks worse than 7 imo but its still ok

    • jd says:

      Meanwhile, me who loved the ‘gaudy trim pieces’ on the FK8: T_T

    • Prajyoth Pradeep says:

      @Jano what plenty of people said that it was unreliable as hell and uses lower quality parts.

  5. Logan Felder says:

    This looks epic. Bringing the flare back down a notch, but kicking the performance to the next level!

  6. Rx7 Slayer says:

    I will be honest, as a old generations Type R fan, I loved the new design, It remembers me so much Eg6 and Ek9, which are my favorite generations. At the same time they made it sophisticated, it also looks more sportive. My expectations for power is or 330hp. Or if they would let we dream 350hp.

    • Veloce Petrol says:

      @RENOWN 55 CHARGE Your kinda right and wrong!!!… lol… The fan boys would never admit it tho…

    • HONDA BOI says:

      @RENOWN 55 CHARGE what about the fd2’s those were still na and had a nasty vtec crossover its my favorite type r

    • J. says:

      @Brandon forgot about the gr. that is really a great car. as is the Z. but the Z is a 2 seater. not really same class. id still take R over GR however.

    • TassieLorenzo says:

      @RENOWN 55 CHARGE “The last true-to-form CTR was built in 2005 (excluding the FN). It’s an upscale sedan with a Type R badge on it.” Somehow the FD2 Civic Type R sedan, arguably the best NA one ever, doesn’t count. Good comedy! 🤨 That the Accord Type R was **EXACTLY** an upscale sedan with a Type R badge on it, apparently doesn’t matter either… 😉The Accord Type R on Top Gear for reference:

      The Civic rightly fills that dual-role of the more comfortable Accord Type R thanks to the merging of European Type R (with luxuries) and Japanese Type R (track day special) lines and with the Civic getting a little larger and more upscale to take the role the European Accord used to fill. There’s nothing wrong with that — the market for tiny cars with no sound insulation & no creature comforts is extremely limited (hence Toyota bringing the GR Corolla to the US rather than the GR Yaris). The Civic Type R is still extremely good to drive, and lighter than most rival vehicles in the same class.

  7. Yousuf Anwar says:

    I love the design so much more than the previous one. No more fake, fancy aeros and intakes.

  8. Type RyRy says:

    As a current FK8 owner, I’ve always loved the eccentric, extreme, almost “kiddish” looks of the FK8 that was so polarizing to people. Honda was definitely going for a more mature/refined look for their civics and this new FL Type R is very much in line with those design cues. When comparing the outgoing FK8 (and even the FK2) and this new Type R, I like both for different reasons, and they both appeal aesthetically to me. Very curious if it puts out different HP/torque numbers, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t. More likely, they further refined the suspense, transmission and overall handling.

    Edit: watched a few more videos and Honda has already stated that the new Type R 2.0T will make more HP. My guess is anywhere from 15-20 HP more.

    • Jon Hop says:

      @ChIken I am not sure what you are talking about. It is easy in the US as well and of course extras cost money, you dont get anything for free in this world… Its just more costly here. Its very easy to sell to other countries in the US.. I have sold multiple cars to Canada and Mexico. No issues. Was incredibly easy. It is a good thing tho to have good customs and inspections. It shouldnt be super easy.

    • ChIken says:

      @Jon Hop I’m talking about what people in the US have to cope with.

      Their dealers sell car, chuck a bolt on or visual extra and charge premiums for “their upgrades” a US uncle explained to me the other day.

      I think I said it is easy in the UK, and that it is even easy to sell in other countries from the UK…

    • Jon Hop says:

      @S Williams These dealers are smoking crack if they think Id even pay 40K for a Honda Civic… There is a reason the Type R didnt sell that well in the US.. Only rich people are buying Type R’s. Every now and then you will see someone who is living way beyond their means to showoff and are paying a huge premium on a loan to get one, but that is not exactly smart.

    • Jon Hop says:

      @ChIken What are you talking about? You can get a Type R with ease here and not wait at all.. They are just insanely expensive.

    • S Williams says:

      @Jon Hop last year I saw the ugly boost blue type r at a Honda dealer 50k. Walked right past it smh

  9. TTV.H_Y_P_E_R__ says:

    Nice! Can’t wait to get these at our dealerships! Mark up is gonna be crazy.

  10. Opticlez Prime says:

    I love Honda so much, I wish I could work for them in the future designing cars. This car looks amazing and seems to drive amazing. I wish I could get my hands on one, just to feel what it’s like. I can’t afford one and probably won’t for a long while unfortunately, but I’m waiting for that someday!

    • Nightsky704 says:

      You got this bro! Type R is a thing of beauty I would most definitely want one but sadly I don’t know Manuel.. sadly was never taught. Just recently got an 11th gen civic sport, you can have whatever you want in this life never say you can’t hope you get this beast of a car some day brother. 💯

    • Rakshith Bekal says:

      Make designs so good on renders that it will catch their attention.

    • Opticlez Prime says:

      Thanks homie, I appreciate it!

    • NCH Music says:

      You can do it !
