Honda has not taken too long to announce while the new Honda Civic Type R at the Nurburgring , a time we all expected and we knew it would not be just bad, fact is considerably better than that of Renault Megane RS 275 Trophy-R , but we can not take this time as definitive as the measurement was performed with a unit development and not a production car … but yes, here and smells like a new record at Nürburgring .
The time of 07: 50.63 was marked during the test tire, featuring a homologated for road wheels developed specifically for the Type R.
The time marked by the development unit of the new Honda Civic Type R is 7 minutes 50 seconds and 63 tenth s, a noticeable difference with the 7 minutes 54 seconds of the Renault Megane 275 Trophy R, currently front wheel drive car fastest production Nürburgring .
This time was achieved in May 2014 during the final phase of the development of Honda Civic Type R production, with very close to the production model specifications. Actually had a set of standard engine, which leaves us with block V-TEC 2.0 Turbo developing 310 horsepower, and its transmission, suspension, exhaust system, brakes and aerodynamics equal to those of the Civic Type R production we have known at the Geneva Motor Show.
This unit did not have air conditioning, passenger seat or audio equipment, but from the mark point to the roll cage development unit made up the weight saved by removing the elements mentioned above.
We are looking forward to conquering Honda launches a production car record for a front wheel drive Nürburgring record apparently seen, eventually won by the unit tests should not resist. The firm notes that throughout 2015 will attempt to mark this new record .
