Honda is all set to lure in the UK buyers with its Limited Edition Honda Civic Type R Mugen 200 which draws its inspiration from the Honda specialty tuner MUGEN Euro’s Type R. As the name suggests, the C Type R will be an exclusive model with only 200 units up for grabs in the UK. The specific model is blessed with the Honda i-VTEC engine that renders a hefty 198bhp. Mugen touches include front and rear bumper skirts, Mugen badging at the rear, 19-inch alloys and a limited slip differential. All 200 units will come done in Championship white and gloss black side mirrors. The Honda Civic Type R MUGEN 200 will go on sale in April 2010.
Nothing sure for the moment, but if the rumor that Mugen is planning to release a two-seat RR-based Civic Type-R hatchback, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a hot seller. I don’t know about you but for me Honda has always been translated to amazing engines with great performances. Well it looks like Mugen is about to bring the looks to the whole deal. Based on the current Mugen RR (pictured) but with an upgraded suspension, bigger Brembo brakes, stylish 18-inch wheels and lightweight Recaro buckets. Same rumors have it that if built, the two seat Honda Civic Type-R would be powered by a 2.0-liter engine that outputs 237 bhp and 160 lbs of torque. So how does $58-$60k sound for one …. ?

Japanese tuning specialist INGS has released a new line of aftermarket accessories for the 2008 Honda Civic Type-R sedan. INGS avoided offering any sort of mods for the 221 PS naturally aspirated K20A 2.0-liter i-VTEC engine, preferring to concentrate on aerodynamic and chassis improvements.
The Type-Râ€™s grip is upgraded with the adoption of 18-inch Sports TS06 alloy rims wrapped in Bridgestone POTENZA tyres (255/35 R18 Front – 225/40 R18 Rear) along with a new suspension from Endless ZEAL / Function X. Braking power is enhanced Endless 6-pot calipers on the front axle.
Other mods include the 5Zigen muffler, the Takata / MPH-340R seat belts and INGSâ€™ impressive bodykit that consists of new front and rear bumpers, side-skirts and a Jumbo-Jet size rear wing.
