The new Honda Civic Type R

Built for race conditions.

Put simply, the Type R philosophy has always been to create a road car that can perform on track. And now, the Honda marque can justifiably claim to have the fastest perfoming car 'in class' after demolishing the old Nurburgring lap record, set by a Renault Megane 275 Trophy R, by 3 seconds - not a tenth, a hundreth or even a thousandth of a second - but THREE of them.

The car is built for speed and performance; The best place to experience it, is on track!

So, how do I get behind the wheel of this all-conquering beast?

Simple really, by purchasing one of our (selected) Knockhill Driving Experiences that has a tuitional element involved in the course. That's right, pretty much all of our on-track Driving Experiences, whether that's driving a racing car or a supercar, has some kind of instructional element to the day. And, it is during these periods that you’ll be able to sample the thrilling traits of the Civic Type R - available NOW!
