We saw an absolutely genius Honda Civic Type R ad, The Other Side, a little while ago, and it sure was swell, what with the dark and light sides of the same character. The car was pretty grand, too. Except there's one small problem with that. It turns out the car didn't exist.
Honda claims their upcoming 2015 Civic Type R will be their most hardcore performance car ever. It sounds awesome, especially considering it's based on a car as ordinary and pedestrian as the Civic. Honda explores that duality in a new ad that you simply must watch.
After decades of producing impressive naturally-aspirated engines, Honda may finally be accepting that they're approaching the threshold of what's possible in volumetric efficiency without boost.
