This performance increase has been achieved with an upgraded intake system, freer flowing exhaust set up and new cams. With more power on tap, the Mugen RR also receives sports suspension and updated brakes. Inside the transformation continues with Recaro racing seats and Mugen RR branding.
The car has also been put on a diet since its gluttonous Type-R days, stripping off 10kg with the replacement of some components to carbon-fibre or aluminium.
The Mugen RR is limited to a production run of just 300, all of which will be in Honda's stunning Milan Red. It's a shame that if we ever get to see one in the flesh, it will be on a trip to Tokyo or as a grey-import 15 years from now.
