#335088 - 8th Jul 2009 9:25pm Honda Civic Type R ‘MUGEN’ revealed

It’s official - an even hotter version of Honda’s screeching Civic Type R is on the way!

The new model, being developed by Honda’s official tuning arm, Mugen, should be instantly recognisable, with extra cooling vents in the bonnet, a large rear wing and fresh wheels.

Exact details on the mechanicals remain scarce, but the engine will be a tuned version of the standard Type R’s 2.0 VTEC. This promises 237bhp, so 0-60mph in less than six seconds and a 155mph top speed are likely. Stiff suspension, a sportier bodykit and stripped-out cabin also feature.

A price of £35,000-£40,000 is being hinted at. The Type R MUGEN will be aimed at track day fans, and buyers will get huge scope to personalise their car. A retro-fit option for the existing Civic Type R could follow.

Probably as soon as they realise theyre not the "Special" ones anymore raftl

I think only people with special needs would spend that much on a Honda Civic.

I would much rather buy an import JDM Civic Type R-R.

The rear spoiler may look nice from that angle, but given the profile of the car, I think it will look shit from any other angle.

It looks like the spoiler on the Impreza/MG ZT/Alfa Romeo.
It totally ruins what is a nice looking car.

I think mugen should spend more time going faster then looking stupid.

I really like cars like this. Special limited run cars based on the top end car. Its been going on for years, like modified cars from the factory, and personally i think it helps the aftermarket industry get a better reputation for itself, as not everyone in the aftermarket scene wants big bodykits and oversized wheels, some like it subtle but distinct aswell.

I thought the bigger, wierd shape, more rear view obscuring and most important - a different colour - made a car faster....

No, that's the fake carbon fibre effect making it go faster. It's lighter. wink

The F20C as fitted to the S2000 was a modified K20 lump and that made 240bhp - why didnt Honda just use that think

Instead of spending time on silly spoilers and pointless holes on the bonnet, why dont they follow the aftermarket route and whop a big fat supercharger on there? The F20C's are making over 500bhp comfortably on stock internals. Imagine that in a civic.
