It has happened: The United States will finally get its Honda Civic Type R.

AutoGuide reports the announcement was made during the unveiling of the 2015 Honda Civic Coupe Concept, though the date of arrival is still not yet known. Our Type-R will likely be built on an all-new platform, whereas the recently unveiled Type-R is a swan song for the current car, which has more in common with our Fit than the next Civic.

The Type R gets its power from a VTEC 2-liter turbo-four making 305 horsepower, and can leave the line from nil to 62 in 5.7 seconds.
