The new Honda Civic Type-R is a pretty tech-laden car to begin with, and to go with its sporty muscles, has set a new fastest lap record on the Nurburgring race track for front-wheel drive cars. The new Civic Type-R clocked lap time of 7 minutes 43.8 seconds, which is a solid 5.41 seconds faster than the previous FWD record holder, the Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport S. The Honda Civic Type-R in question is a development model, although Honda states that its power statistics and driving dynamics resemble the production variant. The Type-R is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged VTEC diesel engine that produces 320bhp and 400Nm of torque.
