If you thought the Mugen RR was pretty sweet, but just aren’t ready to dish out that kind of dough for a front driver but still want the aesthetic appeal of the limited production super civic, then the in house Honda tuner Mugen has just what you are looking for. Mugen is preparing to launch a new aero kit for the European spec Honda Civic Type R. Set to be released this summer, the kit has been revealed as 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.

To those who have driven the European Civic, how does this car compare to its competitors? Here in North America the Honda Civic is near the top in its class. We just don’t get all those similar cars from other car makers like in Europe.

Honda should also make an AWD series of this to compete with Ford Fiesta WRX AWD Edition.

Nope. that is point poorly made. Looks like the Hondaphiliac crowd lurks as a group and comes out to pre-emptively strike at anyone who would use logical arguments or deign to reveal they don’t like the styling of a particular Honda. Those boobs already realize that with such a ferocious fanbase, 1000 units will easily find homes. I bet they will probably put a paper bag on their head and sneak over to the non-Honda dealership to take a peak because they deep down admire what other car companies can do that Hondas cannot. Honda Haters don’t hate Hondas. They hate their drivers.

Looks like the anti Honda crowd lurks as a group and only comes out in hiding to to attack when ever they see the word Honda appear.

These boobs never think Honda can sell anything yet Honda sells.

I bet they will probably put a paper bag on their head and sneak over to the Honda dealership to take a peak because they deep down admire what Honda is able to do that other car companies can’t.

Before the hate parade is in full swing it should be restated that Honda is only preparing 1000 examples of this particular variant for U.S. consumers. So it’s not like these will be piling up in dealer lots like Crossfires have been. It is expensive for a Civic, but all of them will more than likely be sold.

So chances are, for those nitpicking price and styling (which I don’t get, this generation of Civic is pretty good looking) your eyes probably won’t be offended by seeing one of these outside of a magazine in the near future.

This would probably be a really sweet ride if they hadn’t made the current gen Civic so damn ugly. The Si Sedan might be on my list of potential purchases if it weren’t so darn ugly. Who thought pinched headlights were cool when Saturn first came out early nineties.

Reports say it it pegged under $30k meaning $29k for a CIVIC. If I have that much spare change for a Civic
hell for another $2k I can get in a G35 or the new CTS at $32k. Right?

Now, if they had to state ’under $30,000’, then it’s probably *over* $25,000. For that kind of money, you can bolt yourself into a number of fun cars, including the WRX, a base Z, possibly even a stripped 128i - none of which are front-wheel drive.

Actually I am an owner of a EP3 Type R. I have driven this car and it is really nice to drive slow. But if you like to drive fast the rear suspension is really bad compared to my civic and you simply feel the lack of power because of the increased weight. The car was tested in different mags in Germany and compared to cars like golf gti, focus st, audi a3. It never won a test. But German mags are biased. The only test I remember it won was with Tim Schrick a German racing driver. You can find it on youtube. He was totally in love with this car smiley His statement was that the Type R is the only real racing hatchback.

to be honest dude, I love this car, its radical. However, I do know that the famed tuning firm calls the concept ’Premium Super Sport’ - if that tells you anything. it doesn’t sound original from Mugen. Its too chevy. Yeah, that’s a Chevy.

When will Honda Offer higher Specs (Turbo maybe), it looks good, but is the triangles in the front bumper(the ones far from the middle) for better air-intake.

Isn’t the wing a bit OVER sized, or couldn’t they just placed a smaller(less weight X10) like the one on the Impreza WRX STI (making a hatchback is meant to lose as much weight as possible).

’In the End It Doesn’t Even Matter’ cuz its a VTec a flying lil Japanese car .

It is sold in a limited quantity in Japan. To my opinion the Euro Type-R is by many the best-looking Civic ever!
While there are many Aero Kits available for this Euro Type R, today Mugen refreshed their catalog with a new kit known as “Premium Super Sports” which includes a new front bumper and spoiler, as well as a huge rear wing and redesigned rear bumper. Now I am not sure if the rear wing is the best looking part of this kit, but it definitely gives the Civic Type R some attitude.
