    So we've seen plenty of the Civic Type R already, but more is better, right?

    Final tweaking continues on the Nurburgring as this CTR was spotted testing on the Nurburgring last week.

    It looks (by suspension travel) to be driven really hard. Keep my fingers crossed for a sensational 'ring time.

    The open fuel door is to increase centripetal force much like how the wing increase down force. LOL

    No center caps too, perhaps it has some race spec tire better than the sport 6s

    It also says 2017 inside the rear driverside window.
