The Honda Civic Type R is powered by a K20C1 Direct Fuel Injection 2.0-litre VTEC Turbocharged engine with Earth Dreams Technology.
The +R button is provided to increase the responsiveness of the chassis, throttle and engine for enhanced driving thrills. Maximum power is 228 kW (310 PS; 306 bhp) at 6500 RPM and maximum torque of 400 N·m (300 lb·ft) at 2500–4500 RPM.
The engine is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with a factory equipped plate-style limited slip differential.

The 2016 FK2 has a top speed of 177 mph (285 km/h)
