    Now that is DRIVING!

    Edit:
    And, I guarantee they were using STOCK everything (No after market TIP, Turbo, Exhaust, DPs, or Flex Fuel). It’s proof to say, “It is more about the driver than mods.”

    Unsurprising, given the Type-R also beat the LC500 by about 1 second at the lightning lap.
    If it wasn't for the styling it seems car reviewers might have proclaimed it the perfect FWD car :yes:

    I'm for performance & am willing to give up a bit of good looks to get it, but for me the CTR is way to ugly. If they made a nice looking coupe version I mighty buy one.

    I bet that after driving the LC500 most people wont even look at the CTR unless you strictly care about lap times or autox your car. LC500 is a GT car with a beautiful sounding V8 and an interior that puts German cars to shame. Two different cars for different purposes.

    Well, the buyers in the market for an LC500 or similar aren’t even thinking about a Honda right....

    They are but probably only buying the lower level 1.5T or 2.0 for DD. My other car is a Mustang GT and the Civic is the daily for economical purposes.
