Fans of the Honda Civic Type R model have signed a petition in which they are asking the Japanese car manufacturer to bring the performance model to the United States. The man behind this petition is Nikos Stoufis from Northfield, Minnesota.
He has initiated an online petition on change.org which has already been signed by more than 9,000 fans.
The upcoming Honda Civic Type R will be available in 2015 and is previewed last week at the Geneva Motor Show by a concept car. The Japanese prototype is powered by a four cylinder 2.0 liter turbocharged engine rated at 280 horsepower. On the outside, the Japanese performance model features a unique body kit, a quad exhaust system and a rear wing.
Honda Civic Type R petition text
Honda enthusiasts demand that the discrimination against our market stops right here. There is no excuse anymore. If other countries can enjoy the best Honda has to offer, we should be able to enjoy the same rights.
Bring the type R to America once again!
“Without racing there is no Honda” — Soichiro Honda
When Honda founder said that, he meant it. Do not once again do what’s right for Acura brand, do what’s right for the people that believe in the foundation Honda was built upon.
The power of dreams.
