Honda today announced that it will offer a less hardcore variant of the hot hatch without the performance upgrades.Aptly named the Civic Type R MUGEN 200, the special edition model is based on the three-door European model and features the same 201-horsepower 2.0-liter high-revving i-VTEC as the standard model.|
As its name suggests, only 200 examples of the special Type R models will be made with sales set to start in the UK in April.
So, what makes this variant stand out? Offered exclusively in a Championship White exterior finish, the MUGEN 200 features the same aero parts as the 240HP model, including a new front bumper, side skirts, a huger rear wing and a different rear bumper with an integrated diffuser housing two jumbo-sized tail pipes.
The 19-inch alloy wheels, glossy black door mirrors, Mugen badges, an individually numbered plaque and the standard limited-slip differential complete the MUGEN package.
Honda said that a range of tuning parts to enhance the chassis will also be available as dealer fit options.
