definitely looks better in red -

Honda Civic and the new Civic Tourer are running away with BTCC races,  Finished Civic Hatch, Tourer, Tourer (1,2,3 ) in last race I saw. The VTEC engine with turbo in the Tourer is awesome.

I actually think the rear of the car with 4 exhausts in absolutely spot on - it's obvious that Honda spend a lot of design time on it because it is the only part of the car that drivers of 'other cars' will see LOL

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

Agreed it looks much better in red, the black is not nice. Personally, I think sports Hondas look best in Honda racing white.

The wheels remind me of the gold rims fitted to Subaru Imprezas a few years back.  Just as tatty

Not content with the Renault Megane RenaultSport, Honda are taking on the 355bhp Mercedes A45 AMG:

On the CTR I totally agree with those who say it looks better in red - milano red. A bit like the Golf GTI which also looks great in red.

Getting closer...yet another concept:





Honda are still coy about the tech details - 'more than 280bhp' is the best we are getting. The 2.0-litre engine is said to rev up to 7,000rpm and the suspension features an Adaptive Damper System and 'steer axis' to counter torque steer.
