    CIVIC MUGEN RR 1

    All 300 Civic RR‘s are finished in Milan Red

    We know you love the JDM Civic Type-R and so do we. What about Civic RR?. We hope you enjoy with this informations.Based on the already sporty Type R, the new Honda Civic Mugen RR was transformed after undergoing a power upgrade and weight reduction program in collaboration with the help of its Mugen racing division.

    The Civic Mugen RR went on sale in Japan last september and all 300 examples were snapped up in just ten minutes.

    Wheels are new design; Type-R’s Brembo brakes have been upgraded by Mugen.

    Mugen is well known for offering tuning and styling parts for Honda, but everything on the RR is unique and will not be sale separately. Take a chunk out of one of the 18″, seven spoke forged alloywheels and you’ll have to prove your own an RR to get another. Ditto the restyled front and rear bumper aprons, which are fashioned from carbonfibre, the vented bonnet in aluminium and the new rear spoiler, also carbon, with additional Gurney flap.

    Despite such lightweight parts, to which you can add the carbon fibre-shelled Recaro bucket seats inside, Mugen claims the RR is just 10kg lighter than the cooking Type-R, demonstrating how lean that car already is. You won’t find a subtantial power uplift either. In concept form, the RR was said to have a 256bhp, 2.2-litre version of the much-lauded K20A engine, but the production version sticks with the original 2 litres. Mind, with 237bhp it does produce more power than the stock 222bhp unit, thanks to new cams, a tailor-made 4-3-1 exhaust with high-flow catalysts, and a fat tail-pipe either side of the impressive rear diffuser.

    The steering is surprisingly light and tugs gently as the Bridgestone RE070‘s large treadblocks find bumps and cambers, but instantly impressive is the feel of the brake pedal; Mugen has fitted its own grooved discs and braided hoses to the Brembo system and there’s instant, progressive power from the very top of the travel.

    Civic Mugen RR feels a little more inert than regular JDM Civic Type-R, with mild understeer through the quick corners, but tweaks are aimed at making the car faster on track and its lap time shows they work.
