2023 Honda Civic Type R Ripped Up the Nürburgring Nordschleife in May

The 9th and 10th generation Honda Civic Type R both set lap records only to lose them to other automakers


  • Honda has released a teaser video showing the next Type R having a go at the legendary track.

  • We bet that it set a new FWD production car lap record.


There’s little doubt in our minds that Honda’s done it once again. The Civic Type R set Nürburgring Nordschleife front-wheel-drive lap time records in 2015 and 2017 only to see them taken away from them shortly thereafter. Honda has now released a short video showing the 11th generation Type R tearing up the legendary track.

The new 2023 Honda Civic Type R Officially Hits the Stage this June

The last Civic Type R set an astounding track time of only 7:43.80 or a solid 6.83 seconds less than the previous Type-R. More impressive however was that this time quite nearly matched that of the Nissan GT-R which clocked a 7:43.7 lap time.

The title of the world’s fastest FWD car was taken away from the CTR in 2019 by a Renault Megane R.S. Trophy-R. It managed a jaw-dropping 7:40.1 time or only 1.1 seconds behind a 997 Porsche 911 Turbo.

We firmly believe that Honda’s new Type R beat the Megane’s time which is why they’ve shared this video. We’re going to go out on a limb and predict a 7:37.7 time because why not?

We are expecting the 2023 Honda Civic Type R to hit the stage within a few days or weeks.
