3. Honda Civic Type R Concept
Honda fanboys have lusted for the Type R version of the Civic to come to America, and this one has them even more tied up in knots. While it’s true that it will see production, it won’t be coming to the U.S. and so it makes this list. The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder uses direct injection help push out about 280 horsepower. Even though some of the styling cues are a little questionable, the final product will be compelling, especially if you’re a fan of front-wheel drive vehicles. This car was first teased with a commercial of a man sneaking onto the Nurburgring and painting the Type R logo on the iconic track, possibly indicating that Honda aims to conquer the front-wheel-drive production model lap record.
