Dubbed as a "race car for the road," Honda has officially removed the cover from their new 2015 Civic Type R. Fitted with an aggressive new aero kit from front bumper to prominent rear wing and a whole lot in between, the new Type R is both music to your ears and candy for your eyes. In addition to extended side skirts and a new four-tailpipe exhaust system with 19-inch alloy wheels, buyers will also have the option to pick up the GT package, which adds red exterior accents, parking sensors, auto headlamps and wipers, and power folding mirrors. Inside, you'll find a premium audio system, GPS navigation and a range of safety systems, including Dual Pinion Electric Power Steering that delivers "rapid yet linear steering response." Under the hood, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine puts out 310 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque that gets you going to 62mph in 5.7 seconds with the help of a six-speed manual.
