Video: The new Honda Civic Type-R looks stupendous

 

The new Honda Civic Type-R is, without a doubt, the most attractive Honda Civic Type-R in a very long time. Not only is it an oil-painting of the highest order, it’s also 38% stiffer than its predecessor. And as we all know, torsional rigidity is paramount in a performance car. Muscle is provided by a 2.0-litre VTEC turbo engine that churns out 235kW and 400Nm – enough to give any GTI sleepless nights. But for us the best thing about the new Type-R is way it looks. Seriously, hit the play button and you’ll see what we mean.
