Could this in-house Honda concept car point the way to a future Civic "Type R" model? Let's hope so!

The well thought-out Sport Concept leaves the 197 hp powerplant unchanged, emphasizing handling dynamics and aero enhancements. The wide-body exterior features extensive use of carbon fiber in the front and rear fascias, side skirts, and rear diffuser. The car also receives an adjustable two-piece carbon wing.

Track is widened 50 mm, and the new suspension lowers the car 25 mm. Stiffer springs and dampers are fitted all ?round, with four-piston, cross-drilled Brembo brakes on all four wheels. 19-inch Advanced Concept Design wheels with Michelin Pilot Sports complete the picture. The chassis is stiffened by the addition of a Kevlar structural brace in the rear seat floor area.

Nicely done.
