Its going to start at £30,995. That converts over to just north of $40 grand. Thats...a lot. Should we be worried? Yes and no. For one we cant really expect our prices to line up with the UK markets. And Honda has said we can expect an MSRP in the mid $30's.

On the other, other automakers have their US and UK models priced similar. For Example a Focus RS starts at £32,265. That’s pretty much almost in line with what the RS starts here in the US at $35-36 grand.

Bottom line: $40 grand is a lot, even for a Civic Type R. The only other time a Civic has cost this much was last decade with the limited Civic Mugen. Do you guys think if the Type R cost over $40 thousand that’s its cp? Or will it be inline with its competitors?
