2011 Honda CR-Z Mugen RR concept‎

Honda has just pulled the wraps off an even more extreme variant of its sporty hybrid at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom: the Honda CR-Z Mugen RR concept.

The CR-Z Mugen RR features wildly aggressive exterior styling with integrated carbon fibre components, including a new gaping maw of a front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper and high rear wing. The extra wide front fenders look like they've been yanked right off the wide-bodied Subaru WRX, and terminate abruptly behind the 18-inch hyper-black wheels. Finally, the Double-R has been slathered in a particularly sherbety shade of orange paint that is matched by an equally orange interior.
Not much is mentioned about what's happening under the hood, but if the 150kW Mugen CR-Z approaches Civic Type R performance, we assume that the more hard core, race-prepped CR-Z Mugen RR is analogous to the extremely rare Civic Mugen RR.
We think that the CR-Z Mugen RR Concept has about as much of a chance of reaching a dealership as an orange creamsicle does on hot asphalt, but we live in hope.
