After five years in development, we’ve finally built the latest Honda to bear the infamous ‘Type R’ badge. Expect white knuckles – it’s already claimed the title as the world's fastest front-wheel drive production car around the Nurburgring.
The Type R has always been a special marque in the Honda stable. Inspired by our Formula One success, in 1992 we built the very first Type R: the NSX-R. The success of that car went on to spawn an entire range of sports-tuned Hondas.
Only four Hondas have ever been adorned with the infamous red ‘Type R’ badge – the NSX, Accord, Integra, and the Civic. Each one pushed the boundaries of performance. And this latest thoroughbred is the most extreme in 22 years of these extraordinary machines.
The 2015 season sees Honda return to Formula One.
