Suddenly the original Honda styling seems somewhat restrained.
Mugen has crafted body kit parts to work with both the Hybrid and RS models, right from go. Though detailed information is still a little sparse, we're told that parts include: two types of front spoilers, a bumper and a chin spoiler, side skirts, and a carbon fiber rear wing (for the RS).
In terms of functional accessories, a sport exhaust, upgraded brake pads and a new slinky set of Mugen wheels are all up for grabs. "Semi-bucket" and "full-bucket" racing seats can also be had, as can a gauge cluster for water temperature, oil temperature and oil pressure. Read the full Mugen press release, below.
