Watch The Civic Type R We Won't Get Attack The Nürburgring

The next Euro-spec Honda Civic Type R is shaping up to be the best one ever, with a turbocharged (at least) 280 horsepower engine and the claim to the fastest 'Ring time ever for a front-wheel drive car. And because fate is cruel, we Americans won't get it.

The best we can do at the moment is watch this new video from Honda, which shows some of the new CTR's Nürburgring run. Sadly, it's not the whole thing, but it's a nice taste. That motor sounds pretty badass, doesn't it?

If we don't get the Type R, I'm at least hoping we Americans will get that turbo motor in some shape or form, even if it's detuned a bit. The current Civic Si isn't really a competitor these days in the segment it helped popularize. It would be great to see it get a bit more muscle.
