2009 Honda Accord (European version) Type S

Honda Has been making hot versions on its standard cars and slapping a "Type-S’ badge on them for years (civics,TLs, etc.). But now Honda has decided that the latest European Accord (known as the Acura TSX in the U.S.) to get the "S" treatment will be a diesel.
