MUGEN Honda Civic

World famous Japanese tuner Mugen, have prepared the Honda Civic Type-R Hatchback for launch in the European car tuning market. From the factory it comes with a four cylinder 2.0 liter i-VTEC engine producing 200 horsepower, however earlier speculation has it at 240 hp. The Euro-spec Honda Civic Type-R is equipped with a six-speed manual transmission, and like most other Honda cars it’s front wheel drive. Mugen has dramatically modified this Civic however, using carbon fiber pieces for the new aero kit. The aerodynamic kit for the Type R consists of a new front bumper, front lip, and blacked out grille. Moving down the side of the car are redesigned side skirts leading to the custom rear bumper, diffuser, and an aftermarket exhaust on the Honda Civic. A new hood with dual air vents and a raised mid-section was also installed. Complimenting the body kit are gunmetal alloy wheels on all fours, and they match the body work of the Mugen Honda Civic Type-R Hatchback.

In typical Mugen-fashion, the tuning firm has readied a rather aggressive bodykit for the futuristic-looking Euro-spec Civic Type-R 3d, which in standard form is powered by a 2.0-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine churning out 200HP to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.

The aero parts include a massive rear-wing, side skirts, twin hood scoops, a new rear apron with an integrated diffuser and two Jumbo-size tail-pipes, a blacked out Mugen grille, new front bumper with an integrated lip spoiler and wider fenders housing side air-vents plus gunmetal gray multispoke alloy wheels.
