Honda Malaysia (HMSB) has just confirmed that the fastest front-wheel drive production vehicle to go around the Nürburgring will be making its way to Malaysia! The all-new Honda Civic Type R (FK8R) will make a public appearance at the final Formula 1 Malaysian Grand Prix happening from 29 September to 1 October 2017.
HMSB will be taking orders of the FK8R from 1 October 2017 onwards at 21 Honda Sport Dealers nationwide which are listed below:
|Autoworld Asia Sdn Bhd||Peringgit Sri Motor Sdn Bhd||Formula Venture Sdn Bhd|
|Botanic Auto Mall Sdn Bhd||Tenaga Setia Resources Sdn Bhd||Kah Motor Co Sdn Bhd – Sg Pinang|

The all-new FK8R is equipped with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder VTEC Turbo that churns out 305 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Drive is sent to the front-wheels via a six-speed manual transmission with Rev-Matching function. These performance figures give the FK8R enough grunt to lap the Green Hell in 7 minutes 43.80 seconds, the fastest for a front-wheel drive production vehicle.
Fully imported from the UK, the FK8R will come equipped with 3-Way Driving Modes (Comfort, Sport and +R), 20-inch aluminium alloy wheels and high-performance Brembo brake callipers, basically everything you see is what you get. As for the price, HMSB remains mummed about the final dollar figure.
