Not just anyone will be handed over the keys to the fastest front-wheel drive car in the world. Oh no, Honda UK is organizing a series of events where a state-of-the-art racing simulator will be used to determine who is the fastest civilian in Britain.

Before we go any further, let's watch this next teaser clip for the "King of the Hell" event. Awesome, isn't it? We too love the way in which they show frightened little bunnies and creatures gazing upon the Civic's magnificence in the night.

The events will start on July 17th in London and travel Britain from Plymouth to Edinburgh until October. Since the Civic is a domestic product made in Swindon, there's not going to be any shortage of volunteers.

Want to know what makes a front-wheel drive car go around the toughest circuit in Germany in 7 minutes and 50 seconds? We'll start things out by mentioning the 2-liter VTEC engine that now has 310 horsepower. 0 to 62 takes 5.7 seconds, and that's enough to scare the pants off your grandmother. Trick suspension is also part of the package, and this includes a special front axle strut that reduces torque steer by 55%. The limited slip differential and extra-wide tires are also important.

However, what sets this car apart from all the other hot hatches is how mental the body kit looks. You have a visibility-restricting rear wing, fender flares and a chin that's so low you can use it to mow the lawn.
