Featuring all the Civic Type Rs sold in the UK over the years (nope, that doesn’t include the EK9 I’m afraid), this group test from Car Wow plays out pretty much as you’d expect. The FK2 and FK8 are fairly close during the standing and rolling start drag races, the EP3 is the most fun due to being lift-off oversteer prone, and the standard FN2 is just a bit rubbish at everything. Aside from braking, weirdly.
But the Mugen version of the FN2 is the dark horse here – it runs the two turbocharged Type Rs surprisingly close in the standing start race, and would you just listen to the way it sounds!
We know which one we’d want to take home – how about you?
