Wild at heart

Advanced dynamics for superior sports handling

Esteban Guerrieri stands beside his Civic Type R

Following the debut of the Honda Civic 'Type R Challenge 2018' car at the Geneva Motor Show, the high-performance hatchback has set a new 2mins 1.51secs lap record for a front-wheel drive production car at the Magny-Cours GP circuit in France. The Type R was piloted by WTCR driver Esteban Guerrieri, who is contesting the 2018 FIA World Touring Car Cup in a Honda Civic TCR with Münnich Motorsport.

The Magny-Cours GP circuit is a 4.4km track with a mix of slow hairpins, high-speed chicane sections and long straights. Civic Type R's optimised 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine produces 320 PS and 400Nm of torque, and its muscular performance helped Guerrieri to exploit the character of the track. The car's comprehensive aerodynamic package, with a best-in-class balance between lift and drag, was perfectly suited to the French circuit. In the Civic Type R's +R mode, the Adaptive Damper System produces a firmer, flatter ride and greater agility for high-performance handling.

Speaking about the lap record, Esteban Guerrieri said:

Our second 2017 Civic Type R handover

Thursday, 12 October 2017 at 12.42pm

Today we handed over our second new 2017 Civic Type R to a delighted Mrs Sara Renshaw. An experienced car buyer, but new to Trident, Mrs Renshaw was very complimentary about the service that she received from her sales executive - Paul Barnett.

Our second Civic Type R Handover Our second Civic Type R Handover

Rarely has there been so much excitement about a new model, but the 2017 Civic Type R is a truly extraordinary machine. As Inside Lane magazine said:

But the great thing about it is that you can hoon to your heart's content in this car and then ease off, slow it down, go back into Comfort Mode, and take the kids to school, or go shopping, or go to work. That's the beauty of a hot hatchback isn't it, that you can have your cake and eat it. You can have the Nürburgring lap time record holder and still use it as a daily driver.

Our first 2017 Civic Type R handover

Monday, 9 October 2017 at 3.44pm

Last Thursday we were delighted to hand over our first 2017 Civic Type R, which looked absolutely stunning in Championship White. It could not have gone to a better home, as its new owner - Mr Tony Raymond, has now purchased the last three generations of Type R from Trident.

This new generation of Type R has the additional feature of having a Comfort Mode, making it a much more comfortable car for everyday use; whilst being even more capable on the track when in Race Mode than even the extreme outgoing Type R.

In the words of BBC Top Gear's Jason Barlow:

We're going to stick our bits on the block and name this the new hot hatch king.
