The 10th generation Civic Type R is still about a year out from market debut and it's been spied several times in the last few weeks.
Running around Europe with a hodgepodge of body panels the first US bound CTR isn't all subterfuege. Automotive News is reporting that the wrap around lights seen on the Type R mules are in fact production kit. They offer no explanation for the triple tail pipes but do make mention of big and bold Brembos.
Lastly they mention that the US bound Type R could potentially make use of the 8-speed DCT on offer in the ILX and TLX.
But before we get too ahead of ourselves the rest of the Civic X lineup will begin its slow trickle to show rooms next week.
