Modified Mugen Honda CR-Z Photos Ahead of Goodwood

The modified Mugen Honda CR-Z is a much-anticipated version from the standard model, which as we know was not considered hot enough. There are now some official photos of the tuned-up car, and we have to say looks very nice indeed. Mugen hopes that this will wet our appetite just enough ahead of the Goodwood Festival of Speed unveiling.

These are the first photos of the car, and now you will be able to see what sort of design flares the tuner has gone for. Autoblog reports that the Mugen Honda CR-Z will have a supercharged 1.5-liter engine along with an electric motor for some extra power. Together they will help produce 197 horsepower, which when you consider how light it is, the car will go like stink.

Mugen has done all the calculations and believes that their latest creation will have as much acceleration as the Civic Type R. We have yet to see any proof of this, as it is currently a concept car. It is hoped that if the car gets a good enough reaction at Goodwood, then we could see a production version.

So we know that the Mugen Honda CR-Z would be able to handle itself around a track, but what about every day driving? Well, it is expected to achieve 50mpg in eco mode and 30mph plus when you start using some of that power from the supercharger.

Do you think that the Mugen Honda CR-Z will be well received?
