Honda UK and MUGEN Euro have revealed the first official Honda CR-Z MUGEN photographs.
Early tests of a prototype car based on a standard Honda CR-Z and a mid-tune engine have seen 0-60mph times similar to the Honda Civic Type R. A further 15% increase in power over this 'stage 1' engine and over 50kg weight reduction from the chassis, overall performance is set to meet the original targets set by MUGEN.
"Early fuel consumption tests have also been encouraging," says Colin Whittamore from MUGEN Euro. "We've retained the three driving modes from the standard car and economy ranges from 50+mpg in 'eco' mode to mid-30 mpg when tapping into the supercharged power in a special 'MUGEN' mode."
