Not quite so, Evo magazine timed the 0-60mph sprint in the Accord Type R as 6.1 seconds. On the road there is pretty much nothing to separate the two performance wise. The Accord also has a Limited Slip Diff which the euro-spec Civic Type R doesn't have, plus it has better steering feel. I drove both and chose the Accord. Thats what I have now :)
