    "to be the fastest front-wheel-drive car around the Nurburgring,

    which means it’ll have to beat the Megane 265 Trophy’s time of 8 min 7.9 seconds."

    New Honda Civic Type-R will arrive in 2015

    Hope they can deliever.

    Wonder if this means they will be ditching the FN2 torsion beam rear end.

    It's been mooted for a while. Even Bernie Ecclestone weighed in on the debate, saying "perhaps the Germans gave all their money to the Italians and Greeks..."

    Only Bernie could get away with that...

    But really..Who cares about a FWD record! Wouldn't we all prefer a RWD tin top performance Honda on the showroom floor?

    Record or no record, it's still a lame goal.

    They say that civics a concept but if u watch the european racing they already race them and they look the same just with wider guards and a big wing. It will come out here. And yes i agree with bob. Build a hot rwd honda for $40 grand and watch it sell like hot cakes.
