Come September 13, Japanese enthusiasts will be able to order up the
Civic Type R yet. The already-impressive R gets the full
once-over from Mugen,
and the result is the Honda Civic Mugen RR.
Designed to be perhaps the ultimate
performance car, the Mugen RR sheds an
additional 10kg (22 lbs) off
the standard Civic Type R's weight, coming in at
2733 lbs. In
addition to the weight loss, the freer-breathing Mugen RR picks up
horsepower over the regular Type R. It's rated at 240 horses at 8,000
160 lb-ft at 7,000 rpm.
Complementing the added power and and decreased weight
are a new
bodykit, upgraded brakes all around, a retuned suspension, new wheels
and tires, and logo-emblazoned Recaro sport buckets. Availability is
300 cars, all in the Milan Red finish shown, and the
pricing in Japan has been
set at ¥4,777,500 ($38,750 USD).
