A full 500 horses is what makes this 2014 Honda Civic a true sleeper. In other words, something that wouldn't get embarrassed by an Italian exotic in a straight line.
The Smoking Tire's Matt Farah is at it again, this time having loads of fun behind the wheel of this 2014 Civic sedan, a car that looks just about stock from the outside, but is anything but stock where it matters.
And no, we're not talking about all those gauges inside, because what really stands out about this thing are the 500 HP hiding underneath the bonnet.
That's enough power to make you break traction in first, second and third gear if you really push it. It will also put a huge smile on your face, as demonstrated here by Farah, who thinks the car is an absolute blast, at both high and low boost settings.
The owner of the car even ran a 1/4 mile in the low 12's, although he admitted to not getting off to a great start. Farah figures a professional drag racer could actually get this thing into the 11's, which would be a tremendous accomplishment for a Civic.
