Mugen has been known for its JDM Honda performance products and styling for decades. And to the delight of import enthusiasts, Honda has finally announced a special model Civic prepared by Mugen. Planned for production in a limited quantity of 500 units a year, the Civic Mugen Si Sedan ($30,000) boasts a track-tuned suspension that lowers the vehicle by 0.6 inches, 18x7.5-inch forged aluminum wheels, a new sports exhaust system, and a full-vehicle aero-package that adds a front spoiler with a sports grille, side spoilers, a rear bumper diffuser and a rear wing. Other touches include front and rear Mugen emblems, a serial number placard, and Mugen shift knob.
Long known for its incredible speed stats, the Porsche 911 Turbo (starting at $123,000) is a feat of engineering prowess. Producing 480hp from its 3.6-liter six cylinder engine, the Turbo boasts a 0-60 mph time of 3.7 sec., or just a hair slower than that new LIM coaster at your local theme park. GPS, Bose sound, power seats, 19" wheels, and Porsche Active Suspension Management are all standard, as is the ability to blow almost anything else on the street out of the water. You'd think this would have been on Uncrate sooner.
