Description

The 8th generation of the Honda Civic was launched in 2005 as a C-Segment model in hatchback, sedan and coupe bodystyles. The performance version of the model was the Civic Type R MK3 (FN2) launched in 2007 as a three door hot hatchback, however the fastest derivative was the Honda Civic Type R Mugen which debuted in 2009 with more aggressive styling and even more power.

The Type R Mugen was fitted with the turbocharged 2,0 litre K20 engine, producing 240 hp / 179 kw of power and 213 Nm of torque. It also featured a stiffer and 10mm lowered suspension, uprated brakes, Yokohama Neova tyres, and improved aerodynamics inspired by Motorsport. It could accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6,0 seconds and could reach a top speed of 241 km/h.

In 2010, Honda released an improved version of the Type R Mugen, with a revised 2,2 litre K20 engine producing 256 hp / 191 kw and 240 Nm of torque. The faster version could accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5,8 seconds and could reach a top speed of 250 km/h.

Visually, both cars were distinguished by the considerably larger rear wing, a new bonnet with additional air intakes, wider front fenders, a new front bumper with a more pronounced splitter, different alloy wheels and a lowered rear bumper with two large tailpipes surrounding the diffuser.
