Honda CEO confirms that the new Civic Type-R is on track for a 2015 debut and wants it to be the fastest front-wheel-drive car around the Nurburgring!

Honda says the new Civic Type R will be influenced by the Civic World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) car, which suggests that it will get a turbocharged engine for the first time.

The WTCC car has a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol engine and the Type R could get a version of this.
Honda's previous Type R models have all used high-revving naturally aspirated VTEC petrol engines.
