Honda didn’t explicitly say that the run would target Volkswagen, only letting slip that it would attempt to topple its own best time of 7:50.63. “I think it's fair to assume that we'll pursue our own personal best record, and if it beats out other cars that have run the 'Ring, even better,” a Honda PR rep told us. Whether or not that record attempt comes in a modified Type R is up in the air. During Honda’s last record attempt it removed the air conditioning unit in order to offset the weight gained by the added roll cage. Other than that it said the Type R sported a stock engine, suspension and tires. The Golf that currently owns the FWD ‘Ring record isn’t exactly a daily driver. There are no rear seats, no center armrest and no floor mats.
