The Honda Civic Type R has been taken to new extremes by Japanese tuners Mugen. It’s not exactly like the standard version needed it, but it certainly hasn’t hurt to beef it up a bit.
The model, set to unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this month, gets a sporty new bodykit thanks to a bigger lightweight wing, larger side skirts and a new front bumper, plus some lightweight wheels.
