Honda Type-R purists would certainly frown upon the idea of factory fitted turbochargers in its engine bay. The European edition 2015 Civic Type-R will be saying goodbye to naturally aspirated power; instead, the additional blower is aimed to give it enough gusto to make this vehicle the fastest front wheel drive car around the punishing Nurburgring track in Germany. It is estimated that the 2-liter engine will push out roughly 276-horse power, and with further two years of development to be had, the two-door hatch will surely be a contender on the track and the streets. Check out their promotional video below featuring Gabriele Tarquini, Honda's WTCC driver, testing the Civic Type-R on Nurburgring.
