The art of noise
Posted: 21 May 2010
Thanks to this handy bit of cuddly corporate nepotism, Mugen has developed high-performance bits for Honda for years. Not just road cars either: from '91 to 2000 Mugen prepped F1 engines for Tyrrell, Ligier, Prost and Jordan, as well as advising on Honda's engine programme. Now, rather less sexily, it has a base in Northampton, and this car is a kind of rolling billboard for what Mugen would like to do. That is, become the ‘M-Sport' equivalent of Honda. So huge associations with Honda, but more focussed: think of them as (potentially) Honda's AMG, or Renaultsport, and you'll get the idea.
