Honda Performance Development (HPD), is announcing the availability of the 2022 HPD Civic Si FE1 race car. Beginning in November of 2022, the latest HPD Civic Si will be available for delivery to customers. The complete, ready-to-race car is priced at $55,000 plus tax (FOB Marysville, OH) and includes an installed roll cage; a full range of HPD-developed and homologated parts including the engine, suspension, exhaust, fuel cell, and Motec electronics packages.

HPD's newest race car, based on the 2022 North American Car of the Year, 11th generation Honda Civic Si road car has already proven to be successful scoring two race wins and multiple TCA class podium finishes in early-season SRO TC America powered by Skip Barber competition at Sonoma, and NOLA Motorsports Park.

The new HPD Civic Si, follows the success of the 10th generation race car which captured the 2018 and 2020 SRO drivers' championship as well as vice champion in 2021. The new 11th generation Civic follows the same championship-winning formula with significant upgrades.

All cars will be assembled at the Performance Manufacturing Center (PMC) in Marysville, OH where the Acura NSX and PMC Edition Acura production vehicles are built. This state-of-the-art facility employs groundbreaking technologies in weld, body construction, body painting, final assembly, and quality confirmation to ensure the highest levels of precision and craftsmanship.

The HPD Civic Si FE1 is equipped with the Honda L15CA 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and HPD strengthened 6-speed manual transmission. The race car is purpose built from a white body which deletes the 2022 Civic Si road car's sunroof, sound proofing, insulation, underbody coating and seam sealer. The car is specially constructed for racing using a selection of HPD and carefully selected partner performance and safety components.

Pre-orders can now be taken with a deposit of $25,000 with the balance due upon completion of the car. You can place your order through HPD Customer Service by phone: (661) 702-7777 or email  

"We at HPD are proud to be able to develop the Civic Si FE1 in house and make it available for sale", said John Whiteman, HPD Commercial Manager. "The new Civic demonstrates the industry standard in production-based racing. FE1 builds on the unequaled success of the 10th generation Civic Si race car and utilizes the design gains of the 11th generation Honda Civic road car. Owners of the new Civic will know that they have a race car designed and tested by HPD engineers, built from the ground up at the state-of-the-art Performance Manufacturing Center and supported by HPD's world class team, said Whiteman. To be able to add usability upgrades to the car while keeping the affordable fun concept was crucial to the development of the FE1 Civic Si and this new car hits the bullseye."
