The new Civic Type R GT is every bit as bonkers as the last car; possibly even a little bit more mad looking. The performance is just as electric, and the 6-speed manual gearbox is even more engaging thanks to rev matching technology. But with front-wheel drive it’s hard to get the power down in anything other than the bone dry. And, for some unknown reason, the Civic Type R is only a 4-seater.
