Mugen CR-Z sounds nice as it zooms toward Goodwood
If you belong to the camp that believes there's nothing wrong with the Honda CR-Z hybrid hatch that couldn't be cured with an extra few doses of power, Mugen is cooking up something special that may be just what your tastebuds ordered.
If current speculation holds true, the Mugen-modified CR-Z will put out around 200 horsepower, drop 110 pounds of pudge from its standard curb weight and see improvements made to the base car's brakes, wheels and tires. Sounds tasty, no?
Naturally, there's a body kit bolted in place that includes a new fascia, rocker panels, rear wing and what appears to be a carbon fiber hood. Inside are Recaro seats and plenty of white-faced gauges. Finally, as you'll see – or rather hear – in the video after the break, it also boasts some aural improvements courtesy of what we're guessing are substantial changes to the exhaust system along with the welcome addition of a supercharger.
We'll have to wait until Goodwood before we get all the details sorted out, but in the meantime, go ahead and get a sneak peek in the video after the break.
