This is one highly anticipated car to be handed over to the car gods. The Honda CR Z has it all with regards to visual pleasure having that sporty looking body, aggressive styling with a spacious interior. The only problem with this hatch is that it lacks power. This is a hybrid waiting to be bred to monstrosity and the infamous car tuner Mugen has the answer.
The CR Z Mugen will be unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and this is a one off prototype. We may still expect more from this car tuner as they have given “life” to this small hatch. Mugen Euro’s Colin Whittamore revealed that the concept was to take advantage of the electric motor’s torque and have it increased gradually through the assistance of the petrol engine. Whittamore also added that their creation will guarantee an integrated, smooth and powerful driving experience.
This new sporty hatch also has an aerodynamic package standing on 17 inch alloy wheels with high performance braking system and a sport tuned suspension.
The CR Z Mugen will feature an IMA electric motor with a supercharged 1.5 liter engine capable of producing 200 PS or 197 bhp with 181 lb ft of torque.
