The all-new 2017 Honda Civic Type R has set a new lap record for front-wheel drive cars at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. On April 3rd, 2017, a development car lapped the world-famous circuit in 7 minutes 43.8 seconds. The lap time was achieved during the final phase of the model’s testing, on a dry track with an optimum ambient temperature for the best tire and powertrain performance. The new time represents an improvement of nearly seven seconds compared to the model’s predecessor!
