Honda is gearing up to become a player in the hotly contested hot hatch market.

At the recent SEMA Motor Show in Las Vegas the Japanese carmaker gave a hint of what to expect from a hot version of the new Civic.

The Sport Concept Civic Si project from American Honda explores the tuner market possibilities of the new 2006 Civic Si sport coupe.

The body is restyled with front and rear bumpers with carbon fibre aerodynamic enhancements.

The Type R is to get a potent 144kW 2-litere I-VTEC engine with a six-speed manual gearbox.
