The Honda Civic Type R. I know this… It’s been hard to escape it recently. We’ve driven it overseas, but recently we had the chance to drive the first car to land in the UK. That’s an opportunity not to be missed. One, because it’s the most talked about hot hatch in years. Two, because our high praise for the car in Germany might well crumble on broken British roads. Time to find out. What are the specs? Like the ‘FK2’ Civic it replaces, this new ‘FK8’ Civic uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo engine. It’s still a VTEC, though, so it likes to rev, too.
