Honda celebrated a rather special anniversary at last weekend’s Goodwood Festival of Speed (FoS), celebrating 25 years of its pioneering sports brands, the Type R, and Fireblade.
Honda’s historic display of Type R vehicles included the original 1992 NSX Type R, Integra Type R, Accord Type R and all Civic Type R models.
The celebration coincided with UK launch of the 2017 Civic Type R - the current FWD lap record holder around the Nurburgring Nordscheliefe.
In addition, Honda’s Clarity Fuel Cell vehicle made its UK debut at Goodwood.
The grand selection of Type R models participated in a parade lap up that ascends up a tight 1.86km stretch through the Goodwood Estate.
The Type R and Fireblade names are synonymous with Honda's racing heritage and history as a vehicle manufacturer.
