New Honda Civic Type R Reclaims Nürburgring Record (Onboard Video)

It took longer than expected, but the FL5 CTR is finally the FWD 'ring king

With a new generation of Honda Civic Type R upon us—and a relatable Acura Integra Type S variant to go along with it—things have been really busy in the Japanese automaker’s camp as of late.

That being said, we’ve had to wait a bit longer for Honda to officially have a go at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with the new FL5 CTR. As more time passed, some were beginning to wonder if another front-wheel-drive lap record was as inevitable as first thought.

Nevertheless, both Honda and its fans persevered, and a new record was indeed set just this week.

The time?
