2017 Honda Civic Type R captures Nurburgring lap record

Last May, Honda lost the Nürburgring lap record to Volkswagen. VW didn’t get to wear the crown for very long, though.

Honda announced that its 2017 Civic Type R has claimed the fastest front-wheel-drive lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit. On April 3, Honda’s forthcoming hot hatch demolished the current record with a run of 7 minutes, 43.8 seconds — a full 5.41 seconds faster than the previous record holder, the VW GTI Clubsport.
