If you can remember a short while back, we reported about Honda’s in house tuner Mugen and their planned take on the Civic Type R hot hatch. Well today they have just reveled some details regarding just how much these trick body parts will cost if eager enthusiasts are looking to recreate the tricked out tuner ride from the comfort of their own home with aggressive restyled bumpers, vented hood and fenders and an oversized rear wing that would make the Mugen Type R at home on a stage of the World Rally Championship.
A while back Mugen came out with a Civic that went above and beyond what any Honda enthusiast could have hoped for with the Mugen RR , the only drawback is that the RR was a pit on the pricy side. So if you aren’t ready to dish out big money for a front driver but still want the aesthetic appeal of the limited production super civic, then the “unlimited” Honda tuner has just what you are looking for with their aggressive new aero kit for the Honda Civic Type R . The six piece tuning kit is being marketed as turning an ordinary Civic into the "Premium Super Sports" concept and comes complete with everything needed to drastically change the appearance of your Type R.
As we all know, Mugen is more about going than showing, so aside from new front bumper with integrated lip spoiler, twin hood scoops, wider fenders, lower side skirts, new rear apron and massive rear wing, Mugen is also developing a series of power producing parts for the tiny Type R hatchback. So no matter whether you want a full out sport compact tuner car, or one that just looks and performs like one, you might want to check out what Mugen has to offer.
