Spoon working on go-fast parts for Honda CR-Z

Honda’s in-house parts department is searching for ways to get more performance out of the new hybrid CR-Z. Mugen is also developing it’s own line of kit for the CR-Z, now Spoon is showing off some performance parts for Honda’s latest hatch.

While bright blue wheels won’t suit all tastes, Spoon has coated its CR93 rollers in the company’s trademark colour, along with upgraded calipers biting into 15-inch slotted discs. The ride height has been lowered by 50mm courtesy of front coilovers and a spring and shock combo in the rear, while the body has been lightened and adjusted with the addition of a carbon fibre hood, mirrors and front spliter.

In terms of performance, a new N1 exhaust system has been fitted and Spoon is reworking the ECU to extraxt out a little bit extra horspower. At the moment no one knows how much power the reworked computer and exhaust equates to but Spoon is also tweaking the hybrid drive system to further boost performance.

With Honda’s usual aftermarket tuners getting involved perhaps the CR-Z will become the spiritual successor to Honda’s old fave CR-X.
