2023 Honda Civic Type R | FWD LAP RECORD At Nürburgring

Launched to international acclaim last year, the 2023 Honda Civic Type R (FL5) continues to garner awards and accolades – the latest being the retaking of the production vehicle front-wheel drive (FWD) lap record at the infamous 12.92-mile (20.8km) Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit.

On 24 March, 2023, members from the Civic Type R’s development team completed a 7 minute 44:881 second lap around the daunting German circuit – nicknamed ‘The Green Hell’ – making it the fastest production specification FWD vehicle. This time was set on the revised, now longer (20.8km), track layout as defined by circuit management in 2019.

Powering the Type R is a powerful 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that, in its latest iteration, produces 329PS and 420Nm of torque. Paired with an updated six-speed manual transmission, it is capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in just 5.4 seconds and to a top speed of 275km/h.
