The Honda Civic Type R is the car enthusiasts have wanted for over two decades ever since the Acura Integra Type R was last sold here. The Type R has the record for a front wheel drive car around the Nurburgring, setting a time of 7:40.03. To make a run like that possible Honda has added a lot of aerodynamic ground effects and a massive rear wing. This is what makes this car a bit controversial, is it a car that appeals to a wide demographic. It certainly has a polarizing design.Powering the Honda Civic Type R is a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder with 306hp and 295lb.-ft. of torque, with all the power going to the front wheels through a manual 6-speed manual transmission and limited slip front differential. The Honda Civic Type R starts at $41,000 in Canada and represents a solid value considering how well made the car feels.
