The art of noise

The Honda Civic Type R Mugen Concept can be neatly summarized in surprisingly few words. Unfortunately, seeing as all of them are swear words apart from ‘mental', bleeding', ‘earholes' and ‘backwards', it's very hard to give you the full stretch without getting letters. Suffice to say that it's more than a bit feisty.
But first, a word on what this car is all about. Now, Mugen might be a name that you're vaguely familiar with if you've ever spent any time near a racetrack or group of go-faster Honda owners. Founded in 1973 by Hirotoshi Honda (the son of Honda's founder Soichiro), Mugen is an independent Honda ‘tuner' based mostly in Japan, and it's still owned by the Honda family.
