Here is an interesting matchup by the folks over at AutoCar – a hatchback vs. a supercar. As you can tell, it’s not just any hatchback or any supercar. AutoCar wanted to find out if the Honda Civic Type R Mugen would hold up to Ingolstadt’s Audi R8 V10 coupe. It’s a whole different kind of Japanese vs. German face-off right here.
Check out the video after the jump.
