CR-Z Gets the Mugen Treatment
We here at White Plains Honda have been counting down the days until the official unveiling of the next-gen Honda CR-Z at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. And now that the Big H has finally spilled the beans on the updated sport hybrid coupe, all seems to have calmed on the CR-Z front…or has it?
The automotive tuners at Mugen have a keen eye for spotting a vehicle with serious aftermarket potential, and that’s precisely why they couldn’t wait to get their hands on the all-new CR-Z. The newly created 2013 Honda CR-Z Mugen RZ features roughly 20 upgrades to its interior, exterior, and powertrain.
But what do they include, you ask? Here’s a small sampling:
Exterior: features an Azure Blue Metallic paintjob w/ adjustable front spoiler and LED illumination, side spoilers, and rear under spoiler.
Interior: fitted with custom upholstery to match the exterior paintjob, as well as a CFRP shift knob and boost meter.
Powertrain: equipped with a newly developed super charger that brings total output to 153 horsepower.
With these kind of upgrades, it’s no wonder demand for the 2013 Honda CR-Z Mugen RZ is already skyrocketing in Japan. Unfortunately, however, that’s where the new version will stay since its production is currently limited to 300 units.
