The Type-R live stream debut JUST started and Honda has already dropped the press release, but there's ABSOLUTELY NO DETAILS!
Pictures, yes, thankfully, but there's no power, performance, weights, dimensions, nothing at all in the press release.

See for yourself:

Revealed: All-New 2023 Honda Civic Type R Sets New Benchmark
July 20, 2022 — HAWTHORNE, Calif.
  • All-New 2023 Honda Civic Type R is the most powerful Type R ever
  • Engineered from the ground up to deliver a thrilling, addictive driving experience, both on road and the racetrack
  • Low and wide design is sleek and sophisticated with beautifully integrated advanced aerodynamics
  • This year Honda celebrates 30 years of Type R and 50 years of Civic
A global high-performance icon revered by driving enthusiasts around the world, the 2023 Honda Civic Type R was revealed this evening at a special event in Los Angeles with NTT INDYCAR SERIES superstar driver Colton Herta behind the wheel. The all-new Honda Civic Type R is the most powerful model in Type R's 30-year history, and has been engineered from the ground up to deliver thrilling performance with an addictive driving experience – both on road and on the racetrack.
The pinnacle of Honda factory performance, the new Civic Type R is the fastest, most powerful Honda-branded vehicle ever offered in the U.S. Based on the all-new 11th generation Civic Hatchback, the Civic Type R combines its class-leading performance with a low and wide design and a new immersive high-performance cockpit experience that enhances the exhilaration of driving.
"Even in this "year of the Honda SUV," it's great to be part of a brand that remains focused on the thrilling performance and joy of driving delivered by the all-new Civic Type R," said Mike Kistemaker, assistant, vice president of Honda sales at American Honda. "Type R is about more than speed, power and handling. It's how a great car makes you feel that really matters and that's what the all-new Civic Type R is all about."
Civic Type R is celebrated around the world as a symbol of extreme performance and desirability with six variants since it debuted in Japan as a 1997 model. Only the second Civic Type R model ever sold in the United States, the all-new 2023 Civic Type R recently set a new production-car front-wheel drive track record at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan, home to the Formula 1 Honda Japanese Grand Prix 2022, securing its legacy as the best performing Civic Type R ever.
Performance-Focused Engineering
A new lightweight and highly rigid body helps improve high speed stability and scalpel-sharp responses. Track-ready, Nürburgring-tuned and tested, Civic Type R's famously addictive driving feel is increased even further by enhanced suspension and steering performance.
An even more powerful and responsive version of Honda's award-winning turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is paired with an improved six-speed manual transmission and rev-matching system for an even more intimate and rewarding connection with the driver.
Powerful Aerodynamic Design
Longer, lower and wider, the new Type R's muscular yet sleek and sophisticated design features beautifully integrated advanced aerodynamics to achieve well-balanced downforce, as well as a reduction of drag.
Brawny fenders flare out over lightweight wheels wrapped in wider tires. A new more aggressive front bumper design features a sporty honeycomb grille mesh that echoes the intricate honeycomb trim inside the cabin. Larger front fender grilles and a new side sill design behind the front wheels enhances airflow efficiency. Its more aggressive stance is accentuated by wider rear doors exclusive to Type R, a redesigned rear spoiler, and a reshaped rear bumper that reveals its signature three round exhaust outlets and new rear diffuser.
Civic Type R will be available in five striking colors: Historic Championship White – a Type R exclusive finish revered by Honda enthusiasts, Rallye Red, Boost Blue, Crystal Black Pearl and Sonic Grey Pearl.
Immersive Cockpit Experience
Civic Type R's all-new interior supports intense driving experiences with emotive, performance-focused details and features. Type R's iconic red seats, carpet and trim, and a serialized Type R plate now placed on the dash are new for the 2023 model year. Suede-like upholstery with a high friction coefficient reduces body slippage in high-G driving situations.
A new +R driving mode exclusive meter design allows the driver to obtain necessary information instantly, with a graphic engine rpm display, rev indicator lights, and gear position indicator placed at the top. A lower multi-information display can show vehicle information selected by the driver.
The Honda LogR™ data logger provides real-time information on the mechanical movements of the vehicle and vehicle behavior resulting from the driver's input. Other key features include a stopwatch to record lap times and the ability to share driving videos.
Pricing and additional details on the 2023 Civic Type R will be provided closer to launch this fall.

Typical Honda fashion.

One thing I feel YouTubers who got to see the car dropped the ball on is the individual settings. I wish my current Accord had it. Happy to see the Si has it even though it lost the adjustments to the damping.

So I wanted to see what all individual adjustments can be made on the Type R.

I am happy to see it has dual climate and the 10 inch screen on the interior.

So with no discussion on the Nring or HP. I do wonder if we will see Honda testing the CTR more on the Nring. It seems they are not all done with it.

The YouTube car reviewers did a better job of introducing the car than Honda. I don't know why they are keeping everything a big secret.

If it makes you guys feel better every body does this now, and it’s annoying as heck.

Hyundai wouldn’t give trim details for the Kona N after announcing the price for months.

They have figured out you can get 4-5 hype cycles by giving incomplete info like this. I wish they would stop. This stuff makes me not want to buy cars introduced like this.
