Another leaked brochure shows Mugen's tuned version of the hybrid coupe
11 December 2009

Pictures of Mugen’s version of the Honda CR-Z have leaked out ahead of its official launch.

Just one day after a brochure of the CR-Z leaked onto the internet, a brochure containing pictures of Mugen’s tuned version has suffered the same fate.

The Honda CR-Z will be launched at the Detroit motor show next month and Mugen’s version is likely to be seen at the same time.

No details of the Mugen CR-Z have been revealed, but the pictures show it has undergone the firm’s traditional performance makeover. The Mugen upgrade gives the CR-Z a new bumper and front splitter, rear bumper, side skirts and rear spoiler.

It also gets a new set of seven-spoke alloys. The Mugen CR-Z is unlikely to go on sale in the UK, but the firm will be launching its tweaked Civic Type R here next year.

Our Verdict

Hybrids aren’t usually cars to quicken the blood

The Honda CR-Z is as intriguing and appealing to drive as hybrids currently get

If Mugan can get the power up then all well and good, but adding a body kit doesnt add anything. And whatever they do needs to be at a sensible price. £40k for the civic was one of this years best jokes ( when what they came up with was not as good as the Japanese maket stardard Type R which costs half that)

But there is certainly scope for a more powerful CR-Z, so lets hope...

Is there written evidence to suggest the mugen CR-Z will not be sold in europe?
