Honda Civic Type R sets a lap record at Hungaroring

Setting records is the norm these days if you make a fast car and every manufacturer is doing that. Honda is no exception and with one of the fastest front wheel drive cars in their arsenal, the Civic Type R, they have been on a record setting spree, the latest one being at the Hungaroring track at Hungary.

With former F1 driver, Jenson Button behind the wheel, the Type R clocked a record time of 2 min 10.19 seconds.  The Hungaroring record marks the fifth and final planned record attempt for the Type R Challenge series, which has already seen the UK-built Japanese hot hatch set new benchmark times for front-wheel drive vehicles at Estoril, Silverstone, Spa and Magny-Cours.

In addition to the five European track records made this year, the Civic Type R is also the fastest front-wheel drive production car around the famed Nurburgring Nordschleife in Germany, the Honda lapped the circuit in 7 minutes 43.8 seconds in April 2017.
