Honda UK reveals Civic Type-R Mugen 200

Honda UK reveals Civic Type-R Mugen 200

Late last year Mugen’s UK-based tuning arm got stuck into the Euro Civic Type-R, the result was a 220-hp, stripped down hot hatch with only 20 produced. Riding on thel success of that limited-edition model, Honda UK is now offering another Mugen-fettled Civic Type-R this March, but it can’t quite match the gusto of its track-spec predecessor.

Included in the package is a set of front and rear Mugen bumper skirts, lightweight ‘Lightning” 19-inch wheels, limited slip differential and a Championship White exterior, the most recent Type-R to receive the famous hue. Unfortunately, the engine hasn’t been worked not even the exhaust or ECU, so output remains unchanged at 200 horsepower.

An assortment of badges and plaques are included on the 200 limited-edition models, which are being released to celebrate Honda’s return to the British Touring Car Championship this April. The BTCC team will compete in two Civics which will feature a similar white and black colour scheme to the Mugen 200 cars.
