I'd buy one, for sure.
Diesel-Powered Honda Civic Type-R is in the Works! (The Torque Report)
wow thats pretty sweet
the pics are all of the EDM CTR though
which means we will never see it here
The new Honda diesel is the most advanced consumer market piston pushers in the world. It's seriously awesome.
Yeah fuckin right ???
I wonder if it'll be able to hit anywhere near the RPM's of the gas engine..
Looks like 8k on the tach
Wow.. that's seriously impressive if they can make a diesel rev to 8k. One more reason to buy a Honda..
Hefty fuel prices mean nearly half of all cars sold in Europe are diesel powered, and luxury cars from BMW, Mercedes, and Jaguar can be had with impressive performance diesels. BMWs 535d 3.0L straight-six diesel produces 277 hp at 4,400 rpm and 413 lb-ft of torque at just 2,000 rpm, revs freely past 5,000 rpm, and delivers 44.8 mpg on the freeway. A trick sequential twin-turbo setup and 16.5:1 compression ensures a broad powerband, and furthermore, the aftermarket Euro tuners at DMS Automotive (Andover, Hampshire, England) have bumped those figures up to 344 hp and 506 lb-ft of torque with simple electronics tweaks. The argument for why these motors never show up on our shores has always been our stricter emissions policies, but not everyone’s convinced. “That’s just an excuse for whiners who don’t want to put in the R&D effort. If manufacturers think there’s money to be had in it, they’ll figure out a way to make them work here. I know I would want a 500ft lb torque civic.
There's no "Type-R Diesel". Those pictures are of a gasoline type-r.
There is a Type-S with a diesel engine. It's also turbocharged. (And quite fun to drive.)

And no, the diesel doesn't rev to 8k. More like 4k.
As for chances of it coming to the US, don't hold your breath. I hear some places in the US, diesel costs more than premium.
I got my info off of the link posted.
boosted f22 i love the bottom of your sig
I want one of those in my crx. now.
Andrews at it once again.. a diesel swap now.. haha
I wonder if you could weld in some V-dub mounts for a Jetta TDI motor or something? heh.
All i can say is, "A Honda with torque!"
yeah its mind blowing isnt it? lol
I'm surprised no ones brought up the R10...?
twin turbo (42+ psi on 2 garrett TR30's)
I'd say its a "fast" diesel
I think were talking about production cars, not scientific monsters !!
But irregardless, that car must be bad nasty !! Never knew it was diesel though?
