Just watch it. A properly exciting car ad. If throwing yourself out of a plane (one Free Car Mag staffer does do this) is as much fun as a Type R (and she did do a passenger lap with Honda BTCC legend Gordon Shedden so can confirm it is true) then this is hot hatch which should be on our next car shopping list.

Featuring an inspiring montage of adventure style clips mixed with footage of the new Type R navigating the Nürburgring, the new film asks the viewer a series of questions, leading to ‘Are you Type R’?.

The new Civic Type R is available to order now, with prices starting at £30,995.
