    New Honda Civic Type-R - first details

    New Honda Civic Type-R targets a Nurburgring lap record for front-wheel drive cars New information about the forthcoming Honda Civic Type-R has been revealed.
    Powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre engine, Honda says the Type-R will deliver 'at least' 276bhp. A number of drivers have already spent time putting the car through its paces at the Nurburgring, including Honda WTCC driver Gabriele Tarquini.
    Honda has set itself the challenge of making the Type-R the fastest front-wheel drive car to go around the famous circuit, which stands at 8 minutes and 7.97 seconds, set by the Renaultsport Megane 265. It has two years to achieve that goal, as the Type-R won't be going on sale until 2015.
    Speaking at the Frankfurt motor show President of Honda Motor Europe Manubu Nishimae said: "“We have recently spent a week at the Nurburgring, carrying out extensive testing and we are on target, and have already set a time approaching the lap record.”
    The car has previously been spotted testing at the circuit.
