Honda will launch new 260HP Mugen-Tuned Type R 2.2 Special

Honda decided to phase out the current model with the hardcore version of the limited run Type R Mugen that may be offered to the public. Last year, in collaboration with its in-house tuning division Mugen, Honda built 20 examples of the Civic Type R Mugen that features an uprated 2.0-liter K20 four-cylinder engine producing 240-horsepower.

For this new model, Honda honed it by increasing the capacity of the engine to 2,156 cc so the name of the car- Civic Type R Mugen 2.2. Compared to the standard Type R, both horsepower and torque are up by 30%. In particular, output has been increased to 260-horses and 240 Nm (178 lb-ft) at 6,000 rpm, with Honda claiming that torque has increased across the range. Besides that, Mugen also offer some other special components to the car include a set of more hardcore suspension, uprated brakes and a new bodykit.

Hi mr.q

No offense. A lot of Malaysian already got their mind set to Honda and Toyota. Which to them, both these manufacturers able to produce better cars compare to the rest. So no matter how expensive the cars are, there is still got market out there.

Hi mr.q,

Must agree with you that both Hyundai and Kia are really working to move forward. Anyway, really disappointed that Honda remove the "racing DNA" off from their legendary Type R.
