Grey Import Civic Type R

Word everyone !
Last night me and a friend were talking cars while in the pub a,d he told me that he was selling his golf 2.0 gti(which I race and beat on every occasion) and purchasing a 1.6 Civic Type R only avaliable in Japan. He states that they are 185 bhp FROM A 1.6 and can do 0-62 sprints in around 5.7. Now I find this hard to believe is he talking BS!

Thanks People !

Yeah, these things are fookin amazing!!!

I know a lad that has (or had) one and it was rapid!

Hard to believe they are only a 1.6 too...

they fly and look superb - Ive seen one in coventry a few times, white - jap spec bodywork - would chop the best valver in the world against it. Its a different class to renault hot hatches

lol, just bought one on gra turismo, did a 16.7 1/4 mile standard, so tuned it to 434 bhp!!!, with a turbo, and got 13.6. highly inaccurate i believe, now where did i leave that limited slip...........
