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.
