Honda Civic Type R
Honda plans to release the next-gen Civic Type R some time in 2015, but until then the automaker continues to test it. The latest battery of evaluations is cold weather testing in Sweden. That meant the future hot hatch got to put on some camo and went to play in the snow. Our spies caught it at work, though.
Honda is bent on kicking butt and taking names with its upcoming new Civic Type R, but since the Japanese hot hatch is based on the European model and isn't slated to come to the United States, it's been of little consolation to American enthusiasts. But if you're one of them, we've got good news for you.
