It may be hard to actually get your hands on the fury of a Honda Civic Type R in America, but if you do, it could come at a decent price: Our friends at the CivicX forums passed along a photo of what looks to be a Type R window sticker, which says the car will be conveniently priced at $33,900 in the U.S.

The photo came from a forum user in Surprise (that’s a real city), Arizona, and the user said a person was putting window stickers on the cars before loading them onto the trucks when he caught a photo of the window sticker with the price tag on it. There are also a few photos of a giant, Type R-filled lot, if you want to check out the thread.

The $33,900 doesn’t include destination and handling fees for the car, which were listed as an extra $875 on the sticker in the photo. That puts the total vehicle price of this particular Civic at $34,775, which, for the first new Type R to ever come to the U.S., really doesn’t sound that bad.


At this rumored price, it’s about $10,000 more than the Honda Civic Si—the sport trim below the Type R that goes for about $24,000. Plus, the Type R has Nürburgring bragging rights and a rumored limited stock in America.

The official pricing on the Type R hasn’t been released yet, but Jalopnik has reached out to Honda to see if the photo posted on the CivcX forums is legit. We’ll update as soon as we hear back.

Update, May 31 at 3:25 p.m. ET: Honda responded to Jalopnik’s request, saying only that the company “be announcing pricing for the model in mid June.”

I know this is supposed to be a great car, but I just cant.

35k for a civic? Not when a slightly used BMW can be had for around the same.
