On the back of official press drives of the 2015 Honda Civic Type R, a couple new clips of the Japanese hot hatch hitting the Slovakiaring have emerged. Unsurprisingly, the track-ready hatchback performs exceptionally well on the track. After all, it does hold the Nurburgring lap record for a front-wheel drive production car.
As a reminder, the 2015 Honda Civic Type R uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine which is turbocharged and consequently delivers 306 hp. This means the car will launch itself from 0-96 km/h in a handsome 5.7-seconds. What’s even more impressive is the speed at which the Type R can be pushed to. This front-wheel-drive Japanese speed machine will not stop until 269 km/h!
