26 Apr 2017 | International News : Germany


Following the production model's debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, the all new Honda Civic Type R has set a new benchmark lap time for front-wheel drive cars at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. On 3rd April 2017, a development car lapped the world famous circuit in seven minutes and 43.8 seconds.

Several factors contributed to the new Civic Type R's new benchmark time at the Nordschleife. At its heart is the optimised and refined 2.0-litre VTEC Turbo engine, producing 316bhp and 400Nm of torque. New lower gear ratios in the six-speed manual transmission further improve the car's acceleration, while the new Type R's comprehensive aerodynamic package delivers outstanding high-speed stability, with a best-in-class balance between lift and drag.

Production of the new Civic Type R will begin in summer 2017 at Honda of the U.K. Manufacturing in Swindon, U.K. - the global manufacturing hub for the 10th generation Civic hatchback. The Type R will be exported across Europe and to other markets around the world, including Japan and the U.S.A. Its arrival in the U.S.A will mark the first time that any Honda-badged Type R has been officially sold there.
