I know we’ve already covered the CR-Z RR, but hey, who wouldn’t want to see more of this fabulous machine.
Now, this time we thought Honda would actually say they are going to put it into production. But no, they are adamant the RR is a design concept to demonstrate Mugen’s capabilities, and that they could make the CR-Z much better, if they could be bothered.
Sooner or later though, they are going to have to make it. That pathetic 120-hp powertain in the standard CR-Z is so lifeless and awful it’ll ruin reputation of the brand.
The CR-Z MUGEN RR promises Civic Type-R kind of performance. That is more like it! The car benefits from bespoke prototype parts, several of which are created in carbon fibre, including the bonnet, passenger doors and rear tailgate. Other unique feature that make the RR so special include a full length carbon-fibre underbody, a twin central-exit exhaust, vented front bumpers and race-developed suspension. Orange 4-piston monobloc brake calipers and forged 18-inch alloy wheels both complement the vibrant Valencia Orange Pearl exterior paint work.
The interior is just as exciting as the exterior. You get MUGEN-branded colour-coded leather/Alcantara and a race car-like information screen with engine data and stuff in addition to the sat nav that can learn the track you are racing on via GPS and record your times lap times!
If they ever make this car a reality, it won’t be just as awesome, because these features we mentioned are all bloody expensive. But even if half of that gets into production, it’ll be twice as good as the current CR-Z.
