Words are all well and good, but here's the new Civic on video too (mostly internal footage, don't worry)
With more than 100 comments on the drive story, it's fair to say that the Civic Type R is a car that PHers certainly want to talk about. And not all of the discussion is about the looks...
This video, a quick videoblog from the launch, certainly isn't focused on the car's styling. How could Matt comment on it with a balaclava and helmet like that? Instead the attention here is on the car's track behaviour, how it improves on the old car and where there might be room to make it better still.
Do you have time for excuses? The sun was in his eyes, he didn't have the right shoes on, and it was really hot... In all seriousness though, presenting on track is far harder than it looks. And the instructor was very fast. Anyway, if this doesn't suit, there will be plenty more Type R videos coming soon!
