Honda Civic Type R
THIS MONTH INVOLVED a little less Honda than usual and a bit more 911 GT3. Yet I wasn’t as disappointed by having to jump back into the Type R as you’d expect. Sure, the Honda lacks the Porsche’s izzing 8000rpm redline or timeless looks, but it’s obscenely planted, with just the right amount of power under that gaping air scoop – and it’s begging to be thrown around. Its usability inspires conidence, and the looks are starting to grow on us, too.
