The fastest lap time around the Hungaroring GP circuit in a front-wheel drive production auto has been set by a Honda Civic Type R, again.

For the five front-wheel drive production auto lap records, Honda asked five different Honda racing champions to drive the Civic Type R.

Honda has just completed the final part of its Civic Type R Challenge, which succeeded in setting new lap records at five different tracks around Europe this year.

After hopping behind the wheel of the 306-horsepower Civic Type R for a hot lap of the 2.7-mile Hungaroring, Button came away with a time of 2:10.19.

And Jenson Button set a lap record of 2m10.19s at the Hungaroring. The automaker had set the previous benchmark time on the 4.38 km-long track during a similar challenge in 2016, using the previous-generation Civic Type R. The manual gearbox works really well, too.

The challenge saw five of Honda's racing champions put the auto through its paces around five tracks in Europe, setting new record lap times for a front-wheel drive production vehicle.

So that's that; Honda proves that the new Civic Type R is faster than the old one, and that the red ones are definitely the quickest Type Rs.

That being said, the new Civic Type R remains the quickest and fastest accelerating auto in its class, thanks to a combination of its lightweight, highly rigid body shell and unique dual-axis strut front suspension system, which reduces torque steer and conquers hard cornering.
