    The Turbo Civic Coupe concept was bold and brash, and even slathered in neon green paint. Most auto journalists, myself included, let out an exasperated sigh. Then in October, the company revealed the Civic Sedan, and we were all impressed. Four months later when the Honda Civic Coupe came along we were downright shocked. Here was a production vehicle, that very nearly resembled the concept it was based on.

    Doing a new vehicle is a team effort… GMB: Tell me a little bit about the people you worked with on both interior and exterior design for the new Civic Coupe. So we got to meet, design and work with people from all over the world on this car.

    We had design studios in Japan, Europe, and in the U. And I think also that brought a level of healthy competition that kind of allowed us to push the design far further than we could have ever imagined it could get pushed to if we just had one small group of people or one studio working on the car. This was the car I grew up with.
