A hybrid performance machine with respectable fuel economy is not commonplace, but Mugen has targeted the Honda CR-Z as its most recent project to prove it can be done.
To achieve such numbers, Mugen replaced the stock intake and exhaust piping for improved airflow. In tune with the powertrain upgrades, a carbon fiber hood and lightweight wheels dress up this hyper hybrid while reducing weight to improving fuel economy and performance times.
The Mugen CR-Z will make its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England this July, but you can sneak a peek at the creation in action by checking out the supercharged CR-Z stretch its legs in the video below.
Mugen claims the prototype car clocked a 0-to-60-mph time around that of the Civic Type R’s 6.6 seconds. Do you think Mugen’s prediction is valid based on what you see in the video below?
