Mugen does the Honda CR-Z RZ

Article by Christian A., on October 5, 2012

As you may know already, the Honda CR-Z is quite popular in Japan and the model recently received a facelifted version at the 2012 Paris Motor Show. But for those who want even more, Mugen prepared the RZ version of the CR-Z and as expected it will be offered in a limited edition of just 300 units.

Each unit will cost ¥4,494,000 or $57,000 and will come with a special body kit consisting of a new front spoiler, revised grille, new side skits, a new rear roof wing and a new rear apron with integrated air diffuser and exhaust system.

The design is completed by the 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in high performance Dunlop Direzza Z II tires. Behind the wheels we find the high performance brakes but also a new adjustable suspension.

The interior features two-tone seats, a new carbon fiber gear knob and a number plaque. Under the hood, we find the same 1.5-liter engine, delivering 156 hp and 185 Nm of torque, teamed with the electric motor which delivers 20 hp.
