Let’s take a glance at each Honda Civic Type R, interpreted by both Mugen and Modulo: the Mugen Civic Type R concept adds a revised front bumper with contrasting black parts around the lip and wheel arches. The black theme is continued through the rest of the car, with side and rear skirts giving an aggressive on road stance. The standard rear spoiler is replaced by a lighter, race car inspired design, again finished in black.
Mugen is, of course, a long-serving modification specialist for Honda for many, many years and famous for churning out many adaptations of best-selling Honda variants. This time around, Mugen has taken the new Civic Type R, which recently went on sale in the land of the Rising Sun, and added even more aggressive body styling to the already dynamic package.
Next up, the Honda Civic Type R by Modulo; Modulo has reworked the standard Type R and put on a revised body kit, with flared side skirts, to give it a more subtle outlook, compared to the Mugen version. The standard fuel filler cap has been replaced with one of a different design, while red body color accents are used on the wing mirror covers and the sides of the rear spoiler.
In addition to the Civic Type R, both Modulo and Mugen showcased a number of tuned Honda variants, the lists included the Step WGN Modulo Concept, Modulo S660 Study Model, Modulo S660 Drago Modulo Special Edition, N-ONE Modulo X, N-BOX Modulo X, N-WGN Daily Luxe Collection + E500, Modulo Fit, Mugen S660, S660 Mugen RA Prototype, Mugen STEP WGN Spada and Mugen Vezel.
Aside from the two Honnda Civic Type R highlights, Honda let loose on several important variant versions at the Tokyo Auto Salon, namely the S660 roadster in Honda Racing outfit, alongside the NSX Concept GT, a participant in the Super GT500 class. There were also the Formula 1 McLaren-Honda MP4-30 and a racer from Honda’s entry into the Japanese Super Formula series.
