Almost exactly two years after the 2017 Honda Civic Type R set a new front-wheel-drive production car record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, it lost it. The new record holder is the Renault Megane R.S. Trophy-R with a time of 7 minutes 40.1 seconds. That's 3.7 seconds faster than the Civic on the roughly 13-mile racetrack. You can see the record lap, which was set on April 5, above.
As for the record-setting Renault, it's based on the Renault Megane R.S. Trophy and uses the same turbocharged 1.8-liter inline-four making 295 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Where it differs is in weight savings and improved suspension. Exact details aren't available on the chassis upgrades, but the Trophy-R weighs about 287 pounds less than the regular Trophy model.
As America's best-selling car for over 41 years, the Honda Accord has earned its share of trophies. Now, the all-new from the ground up 10th-generation 2018 all-new Accord makes its debut in a creative marketing campaign, "Trophy City," highlighting Honda's mission to push beyond past success in pursuit of even greater achievements.
In the imaginative "Trophy City," metal trophy figures representing human accomplishments in sports, academics, music, science and other endeavors come to life to recognize and encourage those who push the limits and refuse to rest on their laurels.
