The 2015 Honda Civic Type-R might be one of the best cars Honda has ever kept from us. We can plea all we want, but it's not coming. We now know it's going to pack a hot direct-injected VTEC turbo. And now WTCC driver Gabriele Taquini says it's really good. Damn.

Honda released this video of a prototype Civic being driven around the Tochigi Test Track and Taquini describing the experience. It all sounds and looks great. He says it's as much fun as his racing WTCC Civic. Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves, OK?

Still, sounds like a lot of fun we won't be able to get in the U.S.
