A new Civic means a new Civic race car, and Honda Performance Development is offering its new Civic Si FE1 this November at $55,000.

What do you get for a Civic Si that costs exactly twice as much as the standard version? Basically, this option includes all the parts and development needed to create a turnkey race car ready for SRO’s TCA class, with the entire build based on a body-in-white that, unlike the road-going version, doesn’t start with a sunroof, insulation, underbody coating or seam sealer.

The race car uses the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine and six-speed transmission found in the road car, although it features a few mods–like a stronger fourth gear and Cusco diff. The builds will take place at Honda’s Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, the same facility that builds the Acura NSX road car.

Sounds like a deal at 55K!  You could never build one for the price. Love it. want it.

the word "turnkey" always first presents itself to me as "turkey", as in "gobble gobble"

The color of the automobile didn't help
