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.

Marcel Lech used to think 450 hp was all he needed to enjoy his Supra. Instead, he ended up with nearly 1,000 hp that, at best, gets used, weather permitting, only a few of days and just 2 seasons out of the year.

A hot front-wheel-drive, turbocharged hatch that comes with the right kind of balance: not as "grown up" as a VW GTI, but not as aesthetically loud as a Civic Type R.
