Factory tuning house Mugen has taken it upon itself to cure what ails the Honda CR-Z. The centerpiece of the Honda CR-Z Mugen RZ is a specially-developed supercharger, which bumps the 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine's output to 153 horsepower. That's a nudge of 30 horses over the standard hybrid, though the hatchback's integrated motor assist system still delivers an extra 20 horsepower when needed. Mugen also threw in a titanium cat-back exhaust system to help the engine breathe a bit easier. The company swapped the stock suspension components for five-way adjustable coilovers, and the brake system received a complete overhaul as well.

Up front, the CR-Z Mugen RZ makes use of 11.8-inch rotors pressed by reinforced calipers, sterner pads and braided stainless lines. Of course, this wouldn't be a Mugen product without a new body kit, and the company's designers served up a reworked front fascia, adjustable front spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser and, of course, a wing. Inside, the reworked CR-Z uses special blue and black seats, a new steering wheel and shift knob.

Mugen will start to sell 300 completed CR-Zs on November 26, in Japan only, sadly.


What is faster: Hot or Cold? The answer is hot. Why? You can always catch a cold.

should have boosted the electric power too.
fat chicks have very warm and wet vaginas, from my experience

what's kraftwerk? A firm specialized with something related to protection of animals or training dogs?

I wouldn't be surprised if I die alone, but I also don't think I'll mind.

I actually really like it.
Lose the wing though.
Bet it's a hoot to drive.

I used to bench press sets of 47.5kg dumbells and 130kg+ straight bar when i was at the gym. There were plenty of muscles.
China gets massive negative media attention because stuff really is that shitty over there. Sure places like Tokyo are first rate but the rest of the country isn't.
I don't appreciate threats, nor do I like being called a nigger.

Lose the spoiler though

"I firmly believe that anyone who is worth anything at all should own a twelve cylinder car before they die, because there's nothing else like it. It's just one of the great operatic experiences of all time, it's a real noise and there's nothing else like it. It'll take your breath away" - David Davis on the Lamborghini Countach
