Default Mugen Honda CR-Z Confirmed For Production

Even though it was originally reported that Mugen's supercharged Honda CR-Z would never see production, it looks like Toyota's introduction of the GT 86 and Subaru's BRZ might have changed Honda's mind just a little bit. Mugen Euro and Honda confirmed that their supercharged 197-hp CR-Z will see the light of day with an estimated base price of around $35,650 (23,000) based on today's conversion rates.

The pricing actually isn't that bad when compared to the price of a standard CR-Z in the UK, which is around 18,000. With the extra dollars, enthusiasts will get a supercharged powerplant with a retuned ECU, upping the factory 122-bhp and 128 lb-ft of torque to 197-bhp and 158 lb-ft of torque. In addition, buyers will be able to choose from a plethora of Mugen accessories including suspension upgrades, larger wheels, bigger brakes, a carbon hood and even carbon doors. The electric motor on the CR-Z has been untouched.

Hopefully one day we'll see this in the States, even in a limited quantity. With the lack of a Type-R variant on any of Hondas models, a supercharged CR-Z option would be tempting to some looking for eco-friendly performance.
