The Honda Type R Civic with Lauren and Nick Terrell!

What a show for you New Year’s Day! Classic Car Corner rings in 2022 with Lauren and Nick Terrell. There are Honda Civics, and then there are Honda Type R Civics which prove a completely different beast under the hood. Packing 306 horsepower and a six speed manual shift assisted by an unapparent turbo lag turbocharged transverse 4 cylinder, this is a unique car to say the least. With front wheel drive, yet no torque steer detected from sudden acceleration, the Type R can hit 169 mph. And wait until you hear what Lauren has to say about the “Rev Match!” Listen in and enjoy the ride! And a happy and prosperous 2022 to you from all of us in The Corner!!
