The new Honda Civic Type R Mugen*
*Not new, but more powerful version of smoking hatch revealed: the 2.2 Type R
Posted: 09 Sep 2011
Of the 20 limited edition 2.0-litre Mugen Civics launched last year - which we drove, incidentally - four remain unsold. These might be bored out to the 2.2-litre spec, while existing owners could also be invited to return their cars to Mugen to have it rebigulated. Final confirmation will be announced shortly.
If this is indeed the last hurrah for the K20, then it will mark a sad point for Mugen. After all, "it has been at the very heart of everything Mugen has achieved since the company was formed in 2006." The company reckons some 400 examples have been built or tuned for race and rally competitors around the world.
