Since I began to take shape the development of the new Civic Type R Honda since they made a promise to be the fastest FWD Nurburgring. The truth is that there have been some bad blood between front-drive models who aspired to the throne as the León Cupra who managed to break the Mégane time and later by the launch of the Renault Megane RS from the initial announcement 275 Trophy R to regain its leadership.
While this has put even more difficult things to Honda they have finally managed to fulfill his promise. Specifically he has succeeded with a time of 7 minutes 50.63 seconds leaving four seconds of the record Megane RS 275 Trophy-R which is 7 minutes 54.36 seconds.
This lap time was achieved in May 2014 during the development of the car prior to his arrival in production. According to Honda that unit had the standard mapping and other elements such as exhaust transmission brakes aerodynamics or identical to the production version suspension. Where there are differences it is to trim level as it was devoid of climate control audio system in addition to the front passenger seat but instead had a roll cage (for security reasons and not to increase its rigidity) the latter offsetting the weight of the abolition of all the above elements.
Another detail that makes it even more remarkable record of the Civic is that unlike its two main rivals (León and Mégane) that need high performance package to achieve this time the Honda Civic reaches that time without making use of any package . It does this as is with the series model that will arrive in dealerships.
Honda has announced that await throughout this year continue rolling in the circuit to achieve beat that mark and this time do it with a production car. Will they receive a counter from Dieppe?
