click above image for a new high-res gallery of the Civic Mugen Si

The Honda Civic Mugen Si is the first real factory Mugen vehicle to be offered in the United States. When Honda pulled the wraps off the production car last month, all we saw were a few static studio images. That's been remedied, as the automaker has unleashed a mess 'o new shots, showing the trick, tuned Civic Si carving up a track. Limited to 1,000 units, the Mugen Si gets a more aggressive suspension tune, the body kit shown, and lighter wheels. Power is the same as the standard Civic Si, but we have a feeling the Mugen will hustle around the track in less time. It goes on sale this fall. All the new photos have been added to the gallery below. Enjoy.

      FWD with a huge wing for mad downforce yo...

      No thanks.

      This is about as big an upgrade as the nismo 350z, about as good a bargain too...

      @ 30k$, i'd pony up 5k more to get Honda's best: the S2000.

      Check out that sweet body roll action.

      I own a 2006 Fiji Blue Civic Si, and I don't get this car at all.

      All 1,000 will no doubt sell out to teh fanboys, but this completely obliterates the Si as a value proposition. My car at $20,500 was a screaming bargain. This is a rip-off for anyone but a true Mugenhead.

      While I do actually think this is a pretty novel idea, I absolutely hate the snow-shovel chin spoiler, it just doesn't do this car (honda's best design) justice.

      Yeah, it's overpriced and there are a dozen other cars I want more than this for the price, but it's kinda cool.

      Insideline has a test drive of the Mugen Civic posted earlier this week: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/Drives/FirstDrives/articleId=121908

      Is it too expensive? Yes. Absolutely. However, for Honda of America, this is a great way of testing out consumer interest and loyalty without too much risk. Lack of engine change means avoiding much cost of the new model, BUT, I expect that if these all sell quickly and are well-received, we can expect more extreme (Type R? Finally?) cars in the future. I don't need a new car at the moment and will not be buying one of these, but I will be watching close and cheering it on.

      vectorbug; dollars to dimes says that roll is the result of taking a corning at a speed that your car can only dream of.

        I think your probobly right.

        BUT, how much would a type-R roll in at? Unfortunately this car is a prime case of:Too Little Too Late. Honda ceded fwd econo/performance in the US long ago. Bang for the buck the cars out there that are better in any given column gets pretty long at 30k$. Mugen branded or not this car is ten years too late. Sadly I'm quite certain that nearly every stateside example will be promptly stolen and striped bare of anything mugen specific faster then you can say torque steer.

      Huh.....same engine as the current Civic Si....and the asking price is $30K...not to mention the dealer markups. Sorry Honda....this class has more to offer in the $30K range....this is a no go....literally and figuratively... ;)

      Why does it have such skinny tires?
      I was hoping for 235/40 17. and a nice pair of 13" floating front brake rotors.
