Looks like a dealer. I'm pretty sure the auto show doesn't have windows and low ceiling height.

It'd suck if it is all cordoned off like the above pic at the autoshow. It's a frickin Civic, not a Ferrari or some sort. If you don't want nosy people poking the car around, just lock the doors. As a manufacturer car, you might as well not bring it along if it had to be cordoned off like that.

It looks like it's parked next to an NSX and they're both cordoned off together

With the premier of the Focus RS last year, it wasn't coned off, just locked. Hopefully the CTR won't be coned off.

I just found out the type-r at the auto show is a prototype and the one in the pic is the actual production model, in Markham Ontario.

Why did Honda base the Civic Type-R using the 4 door hatchback platform?

Wouldn't it make sense and go faster with the coupe?

A lot of things that Honda does always appear to not make sense at first.

However, after the public gets their hands on the car opinions always, always change.

It would make sense if this car was AWD, or a Coupe, or RWD etc etc...

But I can guarantee that all of that won't matter. The actual experience, and how much thought was put in by Honda engineers always goes against what is on simply put on paper.

1. The people who can afford that civic now have families.
2. Golf R, sti, focus RS, focus ST, gti, Mercedes gla/cla 45 amg etc etc they are all 4 door. It's what the market wants

Honda released a statement somewhere that the Si would have 190ish lb-ft of torque. HP is a guesstimate of 220-230

Not sure if it looks better, but it reminds me soooo much of the ~2011 or so accord coupe. Probably the same size too since all cars keep getting bigger

Anyone try to get one of these on order at a dealer yet? Wonder how demand and such will affect dealer allocations and markup. Granted its a Civic not a Ferrari but more people can afford a 42k civic than a 400k Ferrari.
