2013 Honda CR-Z Type R

Ever since the official launch of the Honda CR-Z , it has been rumored that it would be followed by a Type R version. We haven’t heard anything else about the possible sports upgrade for the past few months, but now it seems the rumors have returned. The first rendering of the future car was inspired by the CR-Z Hybrid R Concept and we have to admit, it looks pretty cool.

The most powerful CR-Z currently offered by Honda is the iCF Mugen announced earlier this year. It uses a modified 1.5-liter engine that delivers a total of 173 HP - a significant improvement over the car’s standard 124 HP. It has also been announced that Mugen will offer a more powerful version for the CR-Z, but these two versions will play second and third to Honda’s new, more powerful Type-R model. Previous rumors suggest that the Type-R version will go up to 200hp, thanks to a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine developing a total of 150 HP and a larger 50 HP electric motor. The result will be a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 6 seconds and a top speed of 140mph.

CR-Z Type R is ideal for those who are fond of efficient aerodynamics.

What I like about this car is the aerodynamics feature. It simply shows that this car is very sporty. This CR-z is a must have.

I like the elevated style and combination of sports, and an elegant concepts mixed together. For me this is not a particular Honda, but truly amazing masterpiece. It seems that every detail incorporates here complements and perfect for this car.

Yeah, it did look good, but the performance of this car is just average. It may be patterned into a plane, but it doesn’t have the speed of it. If you are looking for just a lovely car, this Honda is surely for you. 

This Honda Cr-Z is really cool and stunning also, it’s only too bad that it is one of the unreliable vehicles that they are insisting to produce. The abstract design is so impressive like the paint of the car. This is the best car that I’ve seen, so that I owe this car.

I agree! This Honda Cr-Z is really cool and stunning also. And sure it is not a sports car, but do you think a HP of 150 is enough for this car? Just a thought.

CR-Z new look is really so lovely! It’s only too bad that it is one of the unreliable vehicles that they are insisting to produce. Anyway, I would still wait for the other detail about this.
