    It's supposed to come to the U.S. More hp than expected. I'm sick of 4 doors though. If they want a car that looks like an STI and costs as much as an STI, it needs AWD like an STI.

    If it comes, i'll certainly take one out for a test drive.

    But somehow, i doubt our shores are going to see that guy :(

    If our government didn't suck so badly and worked for universal car safety standards, it wouldn't matter. People who really wanted one could just ship one over.

    There were only 1000 Mugen coupes produced. I'd guess around 5,000 or so. Enough that people who want them could actually get them.

    I dig it. About time Honda kind of made a bit of a step into the more performance echelon instead of just sitting at the econo-box table with the other blandmobiles of recent.

    I did about 140mph in my EG and things got real once I let off the gas. Felt like I was riding in a mobility scooter and about to die.

    That Civic in the states (at dealerships)? I'm skeptical.

    same here. i did about 140 in my coupe. totally unstable. i did 151 on my R6. fuck that too.

    There is absolutely zero reason to ever drive above 100. Even 90 for that matter.

    the US will get the "280" at-the-crank horsepower version that's so dangerously lean trying to meet emissions standards and melts pistons at 60,001 miles.

    oh yeah. and instead of those sweet recaro-esque Type-R seats, prepare for the flat soft bullshit that us fat americans get.

    rabble rabble rabble.

    I had a built up B16 in a 1994 coupe. It was hard to get there, but 140 was scary.

    I did 140 a few times on the motorcycle I had in college. That was dumb. Worst part was how comfortable and often I'd try to go real fast. Glad I sold it.
