Looks like journalists and reviewers drove the 2GC today. First Drive Reviews should be out on July 23rd, and official unveiling looks to be in November at the LA Auto Show according to Motor1.

It's still a great achievement by Honda but it's not as fast or capable as that Nurburgring time would indicate.

There's already rumours of a Civic Type R with CF roof and no spoiler running around Nurburgring trying to get the title back after being dethroned by the Megane RS Trophy R which in itself is also not the exact same car you can buy at a dealer. The whole thing to me is embarrassing quite frankly. The cars should be full production like any off a dealer lot or it's just a pointless exercise of dick swinging that "we can teak our car to be faster than yours".

No problem, add 30 seconds to it, still a very fast car.

Impressive laptimes of FWD will matter, until you understeer into a wall.

Not sure how this makes any sense as if RWD cars never hit walls.


This guys face says it all! Looks like a fun car.

I'd love to see an M2 version of this, but what would it be called? M4 - coupe M3 sedan M2 - couple M1? haha

It would naturally be called M2 Gran Coupe if it were to exist at some point, but no such product is in the pipeline.

Wow, by the title I expected something small and weird looking but what is revealed seem very good and sporty. Still it will be a small budgety car and bmw marketing will tell us how this goes back to roots and that we have here the legendary e46 in modern look, nope...

However I think this also is giving us a hint on upcoming 4 series and M3/4. Looks good although I said to myself my next car won't be a bimmer I might give them a chance..,
