2023 Honda CIVIC TYPE R Nürburgring Record Lap. NEW HONDA CIVIC TYPE R REGAINS PRODUCTION VEHICLE FWD LAP RECORD AT NÜRBURGRING
The 2023 Honda Civic Type R continues to garner awards and accolades – the latest being the retaking of the production vehicle front-wheel drive (FWD) lap record at the infamous 12.92-mile (20.8km) Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit.
Members from the Civic Type R’s development team completed a 7 minute 44:881 second lap around the daunting German circuit – nicknamed ‘The Green Hell’ – making it the fastest production specification FWD vehicle.
Powering the Type R is a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that, in its latest iteration, produces 329PS and 420Nm of torque. Paired with an updated six-speed manual transmission, it is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 5.4 seconds and to a top speed of 275km/h.
The new, sleeker exterior design of the 2023 Civic Type R has also contributed to the record time, with highly developed aerodynamic solutions such as the angle of the high level rear wing and complex underfloor elements combining to generate genuine downforce.
In addition, the 35mm longer wheelbase, compared to the previous Type R, and multilink rear suspension are paired with a significantly wider rear track to offer improved cornering stability over its predecessor – and refined through repeated testing on both the Autobahn and the Nürburgring.
