The next-generation Honda Civic Type R is the model that every (rich) hot-hatchy fan is waiting for. The Japanese compact is a really extreme car that you can travel in every day. The British factory in Swindon is producing it.

Recall that recently Honda Civic Type R became the Queen of the Northern loop, beating the previous record holder, Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport s, on the legendary Nurburgring track. the Japanese model beat it by as much as 5.41 seconds, completing the Nurburgring lap in 7 minutes and 43.8 seconds. It is worth adding that from the previous Type R, the new model is faster, in turn, by 6.8 seconds.
What engine is running under the hood of the new Type R? This is a 2-liter VTEC turbo that reaches 320 HP and 400 Nm of maximum torque. The shorter gear ratios of the 6-speed manual transmission affect better acceleration, and the new aerodynamic package provides better stability than before at high speeds.

The body of the Honda Civic Type R is now 16 kg lighter, and its torsional rigidity is improved by 38 percent. this makes the car more confident and stable in turns. Acceleration? The Civic Type R reaches the "hundred" in 5.7 seconds.

The driver will be able to decide how to behave while driving. In addition to the previous generation's + R mode, there is also a new Comfort mode. Depending on the choice made by the driver, the damping characteristics of the shock absorbers, the power of the steering assistance, the speed and culture of the gear lever, as well as the way the throttle responds change.
