Speedy Honda CR-Z Mugen Enters Pre-Production

Making its debut at Goodwill's Festival of Speed last year, we've been keeping tabs on Mugen's take on the Honda CR-Z. Officially named the CR-Z Mugen RR, the custom sport hybrid coupe has garnered the attention of both enthusiasts and casual car lovers alike. Alas, the fact it was only a proof of concept crushed the hopes and dreams of those who got the privilege of seeing the vehicle.

We here at Capital Honda, however, were sure that it was just a matter of time before the speedy car was brought into pre-production by Mungen. Like most cars, a few details have changed since its original concept days, but for the most part CR-Z Mugen RR will be staying the same though pre-production.
