Honda has confirmed that it’s performance tuning arm, Mugen Euro, will produce an exclusive run of 20 Civic Type R Mugens for the UK priced at £38,599.
The super Civic is powered by a 2.0-litre i-VTEC engine which has a modified intake system to increase power by 20% to 238bhp.
The extra power of the tuned engine is transferred to road or track via a limited slip differential, and grip and handling have also been improved through a revised suspension set-up, with custom-made springs and dampers.
The Civic Type R Mugen features a large wing, new front and rear skirts and a new grille with the Mugen emblem.
Every model will be painted in “championship white” and each model will have a badge on the centre console listing the serial number of each unique model.
Mugen is also offering an optional track pack which features front Recaro seats, removal of the rear seat bench with a composite blanking panel fitted to reduce weight, water and oil temperature/pressure gauges, data recording equipment, and track-ready road-legal tyres.
