The Vezel Mugen headlines Honda’s Tokyo auto salon line-up, sporting a rather extreme bodykit for the Jazz city car-based sub-compact SUV that's destined to reach our shores before the end of this year.

As well as the obvious exterior modifications the Vezel Mugen comes with a number of engineering modifications, including a dual exhaust, upgraded brakes (with an ‘Advanced Complete Brake System’) and sports suspension.

The car’s exterior is its most notable trait, however, with a new front grille, front and rear spoilers, side skirts, a large rear wing, and unique 20-inch aluminium wheels all featuring prominently.

Inside, the car receives semi-bucket front seats, a unique gearshift knob, and special trim covering the steering wheel, dashboard, centre console, doors and rear seats.

Mugen, Honda’s Japanese domestic tuning division, also brought a number of other modified concepts and racing cars to the auto salon, including a CR-Z-based touring car, an example of the SF13 single-seater and customised versions of the Jazz, Odyssey and N-WGN.
