Honda CR-Z Mugen RR Will Not Reach Production

Back in early July we were reporting on a breath-taking new design concept coming from Honda’s in-house tuning arm, Mugen, which made its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Built by the Japanese division, the CR-Z Mugen RR edition has made many dream and wish to see such a car on the streets soon.

Unfortunately, an announcement made by the company today comes to shatter all those dream.

“MUGEN of Japan has built a CR-Z MUGEN RR design concept to demonstrate MUGEN’s capabilities in terms of function, style, performance and agility,”
the statement reads. “The car was built for show purposes only and there are
currently no plans for further production.”

The CR-Z Mugen RR has been created with many bespoke prototype parts, several of which are created in carbon fibre, including the bonnet, passenger doors and rear tailgate.

Other features unique to the car include a full length carbon-fibre underbody, a twin central-exit exhaust, vented front bumpers and race-developed suspension. Orange 4-piston monobloc brake calipers and forged 18-inch alloy wheels both complement the vibrant Valencia Orange Pearl exterior paint work.

Inside the car, the seats are clad in Mugen-branded colour-coded leather/Alcantara.

The addition of a race-developed information screen has the ability to record chassis and engine data as well as housing a Satellite navigation and audio system. This high tech kit will monitor the car over two laps to “learn” a circuit and then record lap data and vehicle tracking using GPS.
