Since it’s inception, the CR-Z has been the buzz of the tuner world. Touted as an affordable sports hybrid coupe, everyone including the world’s best tuners is curious. Well, the hybrid hatch certainly does live up to its claim of affordability but as far as performance goes, it’s going to need a lot more of it to successfully be known as a sports coupe. Mugen seems to agree since they’ve just released a few interesting details including a 50% power increase thanks to forced injection. Got your attention now huh? Read on.
Mugen has also stated that the popular hatch will feature a supercharger which will bring those ponies up to about 197hp and 181lb-ft of torque. Induction and exhaust upgrades have also been said to be in the picture.
The goodies don’t stop there. 17-inch forged Mugen GP wheels have also been added accompanied by front and rear adjustable dampers and upgraded brakes. As seen in the photo, Mugen-spec front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a massive rear wing will about complete the look.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed in July is where the Mugen Euro CR-Z will be making its appearance.
