Fernando Alonso Has A New Ride, A 2015 Honda Civic Type R

Fernando Alonso has posted on his Instagram account a picture of a brand new 2015 Honda Civic Type R that, by the looks of it, has become his new company car with the caption "E voilà".

Alonso, the Formula 1 double world champion, made the jump from Scuderia Ferrari to the McLaren-Honda team at the end of the 2014 season. Since then, he and the team hasn’t enjoyed the success they’re hoping for, at least this year.

We’ve seen plenty of the all-new Civic Type R, though, and with it setting the fastest lap for a front-wheel drive car around the Nurburgring, it certainly is a very potent hatch.

He seems quite enthused about it. And there are reports of him waiting patiently for the second-generation Honda NSX.

Looks like he, like the rest of us, will have to wait until 2016 for that privilege as the release has been pushed further. Our guess is that Alonso will naturally be one of the first to gain a drive in the new NSX once it’s out.

"So if I push my leg down on this lever-thing, I'll somehow go faster? Woah.". I was 10 years old, and hooked. I spent a lot of my youth sketching cars and perfecting my monthly dream garage within a daydream - occasionally interjected with a chase scene, obviously. Cars move me. Things I can't get enough of: Porsches and torque.
