Watch the new Honda CR-Z Mugen
Remember the Honda CR-Z Mugen we showed you a few weeks ago? Honda’s
just released this video of it. And it sounds rather nice.
The supercharged, hybrid-fettled Honda makes nearly 200bhp from its little
1.5-litre VTEC engine - 87bhp up from the original.
Mugen’s also whittled off 50kg of pudge - the bonnet’s
now carbon-fibre and the wheels are lightweight Mugen alloys.
The result is 0-60 performance that Honda claims is level-pegging with its
Civic Type R. 6.6 seconds, to be precise.
Which is all very nice. But we still reckon Porsche’s 911 GT3 R Hybrid -
replete with in-car flywheel - sounds best. Watch it here.
Any more nominations
for hybrid aural pleasure, TopGear.commers?
