R is for racecar: First Honda Civic Type R for the track debuts

“The car reportedly has 330 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque – presumably just a tweak of the ECU beyond the stock Type R’s 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet. There has been some weight reduction off the Type R’s 3,117 pounds, however. Weight of the JAS car is 2,750 pounds for a manual transmission and a bit over 2,800 for a car with a racing gearbox.”
