These are the first images of the ultra hot Mugen Civic Type-R which we reported about a while ago. This car is specially designed by Honda’s official tuner Mugen for Europe and specifically UK where this kind of small fast cars are hugely popular.

Mugen Type-R is powered by the same 2.0 liter VTEC engine but develops 240 hp. It also features a bodykit twice as flashy as the original Type-R as a sign of its inner guts! Bumpers are totally revised, in front you get flaps and splitter and at the back diffuser, two tailpipes and an enormous wing. The standard Civic has a big wing at the back as well which is placed right in the middle making your rear visibility pretty terrible, now in this car it’s twice as big so expect no visibility at all! Mugen Type-R also has no back seats.

The current generation of Honda Civic Type-R has become heavier than the one it replaced but it isn’t that much powerful so it never feels as good as the original car. Now hopefully Mugen has solved this issue with the extra juice they add to the recipe. It’ll be available from Autumn for around £35,000-£40,000.
