With a 2.0L DOHC i-VTEC engine that delivers 197 hp to the front wheels, Honda’s Civic Type R concept is a stunner in more ways than one. This sporty hatchback will be built exclusively at the Honda of UK manfuacturing plant in Swindon. More pics after the jump.

From the article: “Over 35,000 customers have been thrilled by the current Civic Type R – far more than originally forecast. A ‘CTR’ fan base has developed, and now enthusiasts from the UK, mainland Europe and Japan enjoy the raw, involving and exhilarating ‘super hatch’ Type R experience.”
