AutoExpress did a short video of the Type R Concept II, giving you a quick look at the new Type R concept and running through some key features which you'll be pleased to know will make it to production.

So 280PS is 276hp, and £30000GBP is about $47211USD or $53484CAD. If the pricing holds true Honda can pretty much not expect to sell too many Type Rs. For that price I can buy a 9th gen Civic Si and drop at least $10000USD into a turbo and other goodies and make way more power and still have about $15000 to gloat about over the Type R owners.

Wait, did he say 30000 Pounds, or 30000 Euros? I thought he said (Great British) Pounds which is where I got the $47211USD from. If he said Euros then it would be $37000+USD.

Anyone who pays $47211 for a Civic is smoking on something special, even Honda if they try to price it that high. I just don't see that happening.

If it was a hand-built 500+hp Mugen race car that Soichiro Honda built himself then maybe $45000+. But only if it had navigation. Non-navi? Forget it.

like you would even have time to look at the navi screen if it is truly that quick! you'll need a navigator in the passenger seat helping you out! :D
