Honda Civic Type R sets Bathurst record in the hands of F1 ace Jenson Button

The Honda Civic Type R has set a blistering but unofficial lap record for a road-legal hot hatch at Mount Panorama Bathurst, posting a time of 2 minutes 35.207 in the hands of Formula 1 ace Jenson Button. The 2009 Formula 1 world champion flew into Australia on a secret mission to do the timed run on Easter Monday, while the circuit was closed following the previous day’s six-hour production car race.

Honda Civic Type R: Premium Accessory range launched

Honda has announced a new range of carbon-fibre accessories and a set of forged wheels for the Civic Type R. The headlining option is a new set of forged alloy wheels designed to hark back to legendary Type R models past. They're finished in white, and measure the same 20-inches as the standard units but shave 2.1kg per corner, for an 8.4kg saving in unsprung weight. They'll also lighten your wallet to the tune of $13,999.
