    Mugen Civic RR

    Just saw a Mugen Civic "RR" - Currently Hondas fastest front wheel drive....



    i have never had heard of an "double r" before - 237 Bhp stock, 0-60 mph in 5.6 secs, CF everywhere...and smashed an S2000GT by a good margin in its track test.

    Is this "Double R" just a standard Honda/Mugen release or something i have missed...

    Chances are it wasn't a genuine Mugen RR.

    More likely a replica.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.

    There's only a few FD2R's that I've seen in pictures IN AUSTRALIA, I'm entirely sure about the Mugen RR's... though I highly doubt they would bring one into Australia, but I'm here to be proven wrong.

    Sweet. Yeah. I'd love to see one here. Quicker than an NSX and 4 doors.

    4 doors aint so important to me - got no kids and doubt i would be letting the dog in the back if i ever had one. The ponies are though...as well as those big brakes and the oodles of CF...

    I like a bit of exposed cf as much as the next fan of NFS Underground; but that's way too much.

    But that one up the top, I would have one in a heartbeat. And the best thing about it is that it's just a civic, so most non-car oriented people wouldn't realise that I was driving a weapon. It would be seen as a good thing - I've grown up and bought a family car.

    Either all CF or none, if it was all CF i would be insanely interested, but as is, looks a lil vomit for me....

    I dont think it would have worked with all CF. As a CONCEPT I think its great. Its gotta have some of the Red it there dont forget, it would be a very good type RR concept without it
