Mugen’s branch in Euro has announced that they will put the Mugen Civic Type-R, which was shown as a concept earlier this year, into production but will only produce 20 examples of it for UK customers.

This hand-built Civic is based on the factory-tuned Type-R and is tarted up by Mugen to become one of the fastest and most hardcore hatchbacks in the market.

The car is powered by the same 2.0 liter VTEC engine as in the original Type-R but it’s been modified to give 240 hp, 20 percent more than the standard. For this, Mugen technicians had to install a custom stainless steel exhaust system and MUGEN airbox along with a bespoke software for the car’s ECU.

To make sure that the car handles as good as it looks, the tuner has re-adjusted the suspension and installed new sport springs and has fitted the car with new high performance braking system with four-piston mono-block racing brake callipers.

Mugen Type-R has an exclusive body kit which boosts the car’s aerodynamic efficiency and will set it apart from the regular Type-R. It also has a new set of lightweight alloys, 7.85kg each, which reduces the unsprung weight of the whole car.

2010 Honda Civic Mugen Type-R is priced at £38,599.
