Mugen has anounced a limited edition Civic for the Japanese Domestic Market which has a dramatic body kit among other performance upgrades.
The new kit starts with a triangulated front bumper, a carbon fibre grill, hood air extractors and continues down the side with simple lined sills. At the rear is massive wing and a front splitter which has an integrated LED brake light that's usually seen on the back on F1 cars.
As one would guess, the new Civic picks up more horsepower, drops weight, gets a lower ride height and a new interior. Specifically it produces 240 bhp, loses 66 lbs (30 lgs) of weight and sits 15 mm lower.
Whether or not the performance upgrades match the aggressive body style are up to the future owners to decide. Only 300 will be produced for 4.777.500 JPY or $38 750 USD.
