Honda has promised that the new 276 horsepower Civic Type R will be capable of a 168 MPH top speed, the company announced today. The Ford Focus ST and the VW GTI run out of puff at 150 mph-ish.

The Type R will be powered by a 2.0-liter VTEC turbo four sending 276 horsepower to the front wheels and will redline at 7000 RPM. Honda Civic Type RHonda says the car will be equipped with an extreme aero kit to help it achieve that top speed and that they’ll debut the final production version of the new Civic Type R at next month’s Geneva Motor Show.
