Honda Civic Type R & Lexus RC F Coupe GT3 - Dreaming in Geneva

Two concept cars from the 2014 Geneva Motor Show that made us sweat (no molly).

Apr 23, 2014

Honda Civic Type R

Our feelings went from excited, to envious, then to extremely jealous! When Honda dropped the news of the new Civic Type R Concept, we started cheering and giving each other high fives like we won the lottery. But of course, after listening in on the press conference, we soon found out this car will be another Euro-market only model. Bloody hell! Since the car's unveiling, we've seen plenty of online petitions to see if Honda will bring the car here. But realistically speaking, it would cost them tens of millions of dollars to import it and make it 50-state compliant. By that point, the car wouldn't be sold for less than $30K. So for now, we'll have to sit and stare as the folks across the pond will soon get to enjoy the Type R's 276hp 2.0-liter turbo powerplant.

Lexus RC F Coupe GT3

The '15 RC F Coupe won't be hitting dealerships till this fall, but in Geneva, Lexus gave us a reason to keep drooling about its new high performance coupe with this race model. You're lookin' at the GT3 version-a factory-built race car that will go up against the likes of a Porsche 911 GT3 and Aston Martin Vantage GT3. It weighs in at 2,756 lb and is powered by a 5.0-liter V8. Lexus tells us it should be good for at least 540hp. These race cars will be up for sale to race teams by early '15. So break out the checkbooks, guys...
