Honda has given us the first look at the all-new Civic Type R with this concept model now on show in Geneva. Yeah, it’s easy to laugh at the massive rear wing and 20″ alloys and dismiss this as another rice rocket, but this, this Type R is going to be good. At least it […]

Honda has ensured the long wait for the 2015 Civic Type R has become a bit more interesting with this teaser shot of the concept model they’ll have on show in Geneva next month. It looks pretty wild and let’s hope not much is lost in the move from concept to production line.
Not everybody is excited about McLaren’s reunification with Honda in 2015. We can’t imagine why, the Marlboro liveried Macs reigned supreme during one of F1’s golden eras and many hope those glory days are near again. Well, of course, if we worked for Mercedes-Benz we could probably imagine not being overly pleased. Unrequited love is […]
That’s not any old Honda NSX, that’s Ayrton Senna’s old NSX. Well, that’s the story at least. If you’re keen you can buy it for yourself too. The 1992 model will be up for grabs late next month at the Silverstone Auctions and is expected to fetch as much as £85,000 (approx AU$160,000). Actually, on […]
It’s true we don’t really spend any time following the FIA’s World Touring Car Championship, another category undergoing big changes for 2014. But we couldn’t resist sharing this new image from Honda Racing showing off its very cool and aggressively styled 2014 Civic WTCC… …because racecar!
Honda has continued the development of the 2015 Civic Type R by racking up a few laps of its own Tochigi test track. Aside from that they’re not telling us much else. And that’s not really news anyway, is it. We already know the car will be powered by a new 2.0 litre turbo pumping […]
Apparently this YouTube video gives us an early preview of what Honda’s 2015 Formula 1 engine will sound like. We’re not totally convinced of its accuracy, so perhaps treat it as part entertainment value for now. Remember, next year F1 will switch to 1.6 litre turbocharged V6 engines and Honda will reunite with McLaren for […]
Cast your mind back to late July and we brought you a cool video referencing Ayrton Senna’s lap record posted at Suzuka in 1989 at the wheel of a McLaren MP4/5. Honda is back with a new 3D interpretation of that lap, complete with telemetry and a track map to help you chart progress. You […]
Honda has confirmed what we already knew, that they’re chasing the front-wheel drive lap record at the Nürburgring. And they’ll be doing so in a new Civic Type R, which will be powered by a 2.0 litre turbo four cylinder engine. Officially, Honda says the engine will have at least 280PS. Trouble is we won’t […]
This is the next-generation Honda Civic Type R. It’s not due until 2015 but it’s got some lofty targets ahead of it. Honda says they want to own the front-wheel drive record lap time around the Nürburgring Nordschelife, currently held by the Renault Megane at 8 minutes 7.97 seconds. Honda has even released a Type […]
Honda has released information for its new Civic Tourer. Given the car is made in Britain it’s pretty much a Euro estate, which generally we love so much. Among others, the Civic Tourer will go head to head with the Volkswagen Golf Variant. There’s no surprises with the Golf, it’s a perfect example of teutonic […]
The recently announced McLaren-Honda Formula 1 partnership could extend to road cars Martin Whitmarsh says. “It’s a pure Formula 1 contract, but we’ve already been looking at automotive technology and we’re sharing that very openly,” said McLaren’s Team Principal at the Hungarian Grand Prix. “Our road car strategy at the moment has no other automotive […]
As far as tributes go this one is hard to beat. We can’t tell you a lot about it other than Honda has literally created a sound track to give an audio visual representation of Ayrton Senna driving a McLaren MP4/5 around the famous Suzuka grand prix circuit. Oh, and you’re going to like it, […]
It’s taken us a while to prepare, but here’s your first instalment in our 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed image gallery. We’ve got more than 260 images in all which will be spread out over three galleries. Presented in alphabetical order, this selection of photos starts with Alfa Romeo and ends with Lotus. And doesn’t […]
Ride on lawn mowers care cool. They just are. But what about one with a 1000cc engine producing 81kW that is capable of reaching 100km/h in around 4 seconds? Yes, really. It even has a paddle-shift transmission! This the Honda Mean Mower. It weighs just 140kg and its top speed is a staggering 210km/h. It’s […]
