Here we have the latest 2017 (67) Honda Civic Type R GT FK8, VTEC Turbo (320ps, 400Nm), 6 Speed Manual with Rev Match Technology, finished in the “IN” Sonic Grey with contrasting Red/Black Alcantara Sports Seats . First registered 18th September 2017, Stunning condition with just 11,700 miles and 2 Owners from new.
2.0l, 316bhp, 295 Lb/ft, Turbo Engine, Front Wheel Drive with 6 Speed Gearbox and Limited Slip Differential (LSD), It weighs a claimed 1380kg, which gives it a power to weight ratio of 222bhp per tonne, 0-60 in a swift 5.7 Seconds and an impressive 167Mph Top Speed, whilst retaining a claimed 38.7mpg Combined.
The FK2 Type-R set a 7:50.63 time around the Nurburgring in 2014 making it the fastest Front Wheel Drive production car all the way until 2016 when it was narrowly pipped by the lightweight (2 Seater) Golf Clubsport S. In 2017, Honda has upped the ante for its new FK8 Type-R, which stormed home in 7:43.80. That’s 5.4 seconds faster than the VW Golf GTI Clubsport S, from a car with four doors and rear seats. Pretty impressive, right? especially considering the equipment levels the Type R has.
That record has only just been beaten by the new Renaultsport Megane Trophy R (7:40.01) which is not yet released but again a light weight car with no rear seats, composite front seats etc and a £50,000 price tag (near £70,000 in the spec that set the record !!).

The Honda Civic Type R is the ultimate example of what a hot hatch should be. It has the ability to transform itself from a comfortable day-to-day hatchback into a hardcore performance carat the flick of a switch, helped no end by the addition of standard-fit adaptive dampers that can be tailored to suit your driving mood.
The styling won’t be to everyone’s taste, but the Type R has the broadest range of abilities in its class. For that reason we crowed it as our Hot Hatch Of The Year. Our Choice the Honda Civic Type R GT.
Honda’s Type R badge is an icon of performance that promises as many thrills as a GTI or RS-badged model from a rival manufacturer. Thankfully, the latest Type R delivers the goods as one of the best front-wheel-drive hot hatchbacks ever built.
The Civic Type R on sale today uses similar running gear to the last model, but it has been given a thorough overhaul and a slight power boost to make the current car deliver even sharper handling and 310bhp from its 2.0-litre turbocharged engine. It’s based on the current Civic Mk10, although this is only the fifth-generation Civic Type R to be produced.
There’s a six-speed manual gearbox – unlike some rivals, Honda doesn’t offer an auto gearbox on its performance hatch – and the front-drive layout gives the Civic Type R a 0-62mph time of 5.7 seconds. That’s the same as the less powerful Mk4 Type R, but the current car has a higher top speed, at 169mph.
Either way, the current Civic Type R set out its stall as a front-runner in the class by setting a new front-wheel drive hot hatchback lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschliefe in Germany, setting a time of 7 minutes 48.3 seconds. Honda also claims that the Type R is the only car in its class which generates downforce at speed to help improve stability and performance. So those wild wings and spoilers aren’t just there for dramatic looks.
Huge fun on the road but there’s a softer side too that makes it more viable as a daily drive.
The Honda Civic Type R may not be the fastest hot hatch off the line with a 0-62mph time of 5.7 seconds, but as a package it delivers one of the most intoxicating driving experiences money can buy – that’s why we crowned it our Hot Hatch of the Year for 2017.
The first thing you notice from behind the wheel are the excellent buckets seats. They hug you in all of the right places, seat you low in the car and feel a lot more comfortable than they look. A new digital dash and cleaner centre console design also make the Civic Type R a much nicer place to spend time than before.
