A higher compression ratio and improved breathing efficiency help the naturally-aspirated K20A 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine output a maximum of 165kW (221 HP) at 8,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 215Nm (158 lb-ft) at 6,100 rpm.

A close-ratio 6-speed manual transmission is matched to the Type R engine.

The highly rigid Civic body and its advanced layout serves as the basis for an even more highly rigid, yet lightweight Type R body. Measures to enhance body rigidity while reducing weight have translated into a body that is 50% more rigid than in the Integra Type R production model sold between 2001 and 2006.

Specially tuned suspension, high performance 18-inch tires, a torque-sensitive helical limited slip differential, large disc brakes for improved fade resistance and other performance-enhancing features contribute to higher cornering performance and stability for an exciting, racecar-like driving experience.

From what I've read, this CTR is as fast or faster than an S2000 around the track. Now if only they would bring it over here.
