Meet one of the most desirable hot hatches ever! This is the Civic Type R Mugen 200 – and as its name suggests, the new car will be limited to 200 examples.
On sale through Honda dealers in April it’s inspired by the 237bhp ultra-rare Civic Type R Mugen we drove back in September. Additional equipment includes a Mugen-designed bodykit, 19-inch ‘Lightning’ alloy wheels, Mugen badging on the bootlid and a dashboard plaque. As with the Championship White Type R it replaces, the Mugen will have white paint, gloss black mirrors and a limited-slip differential. Prices are yet to be confirmed.
The announcement of the Mugen 200 coincides with the launch of the firm’s British Touring Car Championship bid for 2010. Honda will campaign two Civics with a white-and-black colour scheme, similar to the special edition road car.
