    Bro, The cars that you have mentioned are pure class. If This Type R had ( Lets assume) 1000 hoursepower, still Its out of the league of BMW, Lambo, Mercedes, Ferrari.
    How can even you compare honda with those cars!
    Huh!

    This news is viral all over the automobile forums. Not just car throttle. Cheers.

    this car is about 3 times lesser in price with those super sports if Honda beats them then it would definitely be a shame for these million dollar SSs and he didn’t compared it automobile critics around the world did it, its not for the first time that Honda has made such record it did it in 24 hours of Lemans and on other tracks too.

  • Adnan Khan

    So your analysis is based only on a price factor?. So you are sayin that it has a lesser price and beats other Super cars , is enough to declare that this type R is better than ferrari,bmw,mercedes?

    Really?

  • Heder Aziz

    4 words, VTEC KICKED IN YO!

  • Usman Haider Sheikh

    dude! why so brand conscious? if it beats them, it is better. no one complains about comparing Nissan GTR to other super cars(GTR being cheaper). Nissan wasn’t always a super car brand. it still makes kei cars. but it made history with skyline, gtr…. Honda is doing the same.

  • Bilal Qureshi

    Each car on the list is still a couple of years old- at least 5. And yeah, Honda did beat the likes of Porsche/Ferrari/Lamborghini from a few years ago, but it’s not really an achievement to beat old benchmarks. I don’t know if they’ve run the NSX around the ‘ring yet, but that’s a new generation of car, and they’ll be judged apples-to-apples based on THAT ‘ring time.
    Still, it’s a 300 horsepower civic from the factory, and that’s something to be excited about regardless.

  • 911

    Maybe the super expensive SUPER cars’ drivers were being super cautious ?

  • Adnan Khan

    No, Its all about the overall package.
    Mercedes ferrari Bmw > Honda on any given day.
    the comparison is vague , thats all i am saying. There is a reason that people buy those cars which cost millions of dollars.

  • Aamir Bashir

    Well its a kinda good news but why we should be feeling happy about it as its not for us … Japan, UAE, USA, UK, Europe should be waiting for such machines as we are not getting these cars in Pakistan anyway ….

  • Usama Maqsood

    gtr lap times are way less than 7 50

  • disqus_EBclYzQDil

    It’s a nice feat, but I really feel this is all just marketing b.s by Honda. Coz technically that lap time is false! As a s2k owner I felt cheated with this one. The civic they ran on Nurburgring has a roll cage, no radio, a/c etc. It’s what makes a race car TBH. We won’t find roll cages on these civic on honda showrooms right? Come on honda… They should’ve done it the way like Nissan, Porsche, Ferrari, etc. did on the Nur. Until they ran a showroom version of these Type Rs On the ring, I won’t buy into all the hype. Now I know why they aren’t included on the official ring time as of this moment.
