Petrol heads from all over the world continue to be impressed by the latest Honda Civic Type R, and it's not hard to see why.
First of all, if you don't hear it, then you'll definitely see it coming from a mile away, as it has a very aggressive design, meant to underline its super hatch abilities.
Moreover, the car is very agile around corners, it drives good, and it packs quite a punch from its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that feeds 315hp and 295lb-ft (400Nm) of torque to the front wheels through a six-speed manual transmission, which is the sole choice.
It also has the ability of going from naught to 62mph (100km/h) in 5.7 seconds, and up to a top speed of 169mph (272km/h), and it will do this while averaging 31 US mpg (37 UK mpg / 7.7 l/100 km); CO2 emissions stop at 176 g/km.
The new-gen Honda Civic Type R looks very much in its element on the track, as the video that follows proves. It was shot recently at the Autobahn Country Club, in Joliet, Illinois, and the man holding the wheel ended up falling in love with the Japanese hot hatch.
