FWD cars with as many accolades and track records as Will Au-Yeung’s 2012 Honda Civic Si are hard to come by - a true testament to the workmanship and driver ability found within. For the hardcore Time Attack fans worldwide, Au-Yeung needs no introduction, but if you’re new here, let us fill you in. Between PZ Tuning’s unreal engineering, and Au-Yeung’s driving, the team has managed numerous highly coveted world records, including the ButtonWillow CW13 overall time attack record, Road Atlanta overall time attack record, NJMP overall time attack record, Ginerman Raceway overall time attack record, and the world’s fastest FF lap on Japan’s Tsukuba Circuit. Of course, these records are just a part of the team’s legacy in Global Time Attack, in which Au-Yeung holds the 2017/2018 Unlimited Pro Class Champion title.

The build was loosely inspired by Honda’s own racecar in the Continental Tires Challenge, using the same chassis. Seeing the potential in the platform, as well as the fact there had been some racing development for the chassis already, Au-Yeung and his team set out to build a monster. With nearly 900 whp, a monster is exactly what they’ve created, now boasted as one of the fastest Honda Civics in the entire world.
