Mugen Drops CR-Z Prototype - Spinout

Mugen added adjustable shocks and a big brake upgrade.

Sep 7, 2011

We’ve featured drawings of this seductive ride, but Mugen has followed up those “promises on paper” with a fully sorted prototype. The sporty hybrid features a hunkered stance and aggressive look, compliments of well-targeted Mugen gear — a wicked body kit, carbon-fiber hood, rear spoiler and slick 17-inch rolling stock make up the look. Mugen also added adjustable shocks and a big brake upgrade.

Things get even more serious under the hood, where the famed Honda tuning shop added a supercharger kit to the mix. The blower boosts total power (both gasoline engine and hybrid motor) to 197 hp, a substantial gain of 72 ponies over the stock CR-Z’s 125hp output. This reportedly drops the CR-Z’s pedestrian high-9-second 0–60 time to a more respectable 6.6 seconds. While the car is strictly a prototype with no plans of going into production, we’re hopeful that all the parts you see here will see the end of a production line in some form.
