In a recent interview with Top Gear, on Hisayuki Yagi , one of the engineers responsible for the development of Civic Type R he raised would happen if another brand achieve beat record currently held by the Type R in the circuit Nurburgring Nordschleife.
Yagi simply replied that they should get the lap record again, indicating that no margin to rotate faster than the impressive 7: 50.63 minutes current record, should be limited to improve the car .
What would happen if a manufacturer develops a special series? Yagi says that if it is a limited edition and not a production car series think carefully if necessary develop improvements to overcome, but if instead the product off the charts, should break the record again.
Yagi culminated ensuring that there is still room to expand the power of the Type R beyond the 310 horsepower of the current model, as well as further reduce its weight, possible watching improved around 20 hp and a weight reduction of about 50 kilograms.
