2015 Honda Civic Type R : Engineers still "100 per cent confident" of breaking 'Ring record

Honda remains confident the new Civic Type R can still become the fastest front-wheel-drive production car around the Nurburgring despite the bar being raised twice since the car maker’s CEO originally set the ambitious target. Takanobu Ito made the bold claim when confirming the return of the Honda Civic Type R in 2012. Then, the Renault Megane RS265 held the record for a front-drive road car around the famous 20.8-kilometre German circuit, having stopped the clock in 8:07.79 in 2011.

Nissan Pulsar Nismo concept debuts in Paris

The covers have been pulled off the European Nissan Pulsar Nismo concept car at the Paris motor show. Nissan has yet to comment on which motor lurks underneath the Pulsar Nismo's bonnet. We do know, though, that the show car features a six-speed manual transmission and has a redline that's been set just shy of 6500rpm, although there's no boost or temperature gauge either in the instrument cluster or atop the dash.
