Merry Christmas: Civic Type-R to Returns, Just Not to the US

While Honda's hyping the release of the new Civic Si as a return to form here in the US, the boys and girls in Tokyo are preparing to unleash a new Type-R elsewhere in the world, including the UK. Details on the latest rendition of the hooniest of the Civic litter are sparse at this point, although we do know that it'll be built in Honda's Swindon, England plant, will debut at Geneva, and is scheduled to go on sale in early 2007. And, as always, there are, as of now, no plans for us to see it in the US of A. Bah. Triple-humbug, even.
