That's very impressive, puts the type R at spot #77 of the fastest top 100 laps times at the Ring, right behind the 2008 911 Carerra S and 2003 M3, AND in a front wheel drive car. It's also a great value considering the price will be substantially less than a comparable German car. The only thing missing is pedigree. Hopefully when the NSX is reintroduced, that will begin to put Honda into the dream car category for enthusiasts.
We are boring people. And to think, this will be available for purchase by boring people late next year. Boring dream indeed.
