2018 Nissan GTR:
It will use the engine from Nissan’s 2015 Le Mans racer: Speaking to TopGear.com, Ben Bowlby – Nissan’s creative genius behind the LMP1 GT-R and the DeltaWing – confirmed that the new GT-R would feature an iteration of the twin-turbo V6 powering the company’s Le Mans entrant. “The 3.0-litre V6 [from the LMP1 car] is a sort of god-child of the true, road-going GT-R,” he said, noting that the unit’s direction injection, turbo integration and combustion technology are all ‘applicable to the road’. “It is truly an early ancestor of what will be a future Nissan GT-R engine,” he added. In its current, Le Mans-spec form, that new 3.0-litre V6 revs to around 6,500rpm and produces over 550bhp. Considering the current Nismo GT-R produces 600bhp, and taking into account the GT-R’s rate of improvement, we’d expect the new, ‘R36’ GT-R to produce at least this much, if not more. The V6 will be slotted up front, just like before, and matched to a dual-clutch automatic gearbox. “Mizuno-san [the ‘father’ of the GT-R] says the GT-R will always be a front-engined, 2+2-seater coupe,” said Shiro Nakamura, Nissan’s chief creative officer…

2018 Honda Civic Type R:
Peak power output from the optimised and refined 2.0-litre VTEC TURBO engine is 320 PS at 6,500rpm, and peak torque is 400Nm from 2,500rpm to 4,500rpm. It covers the 0-100km/h (0-62 mph) sprint in just 5.7 seconds and will go on to a top speed of 272km/h (169mph); meaning it is both the fastest-accelerating and quickest car in its class. It is also the fastest Type R ever around the Nürburgring Nordschleife with a lap time of 7min 43.8sec. The Honda Civic Type R has a new selection of driving modes, adding a ‘Comfort’ setting to the default ‘Sport’ and track-focused ‘+R’ modes – all of which tailor the suspension compliance, steering geometry and throttle response of the car on demand. Compared to the previous Type R, the more significant difference between the damping forces of each driving mode gives the new car greater usability across a wider range of road surfaces. Notably, Comfort mode affords a high degree of compliance, coupled with a less urgent level of steering response…
