Default 2012 Honda Civic Type R Mugen 2.2 Debuts



The 2012 Honda Civic Type R Mugen 2.2 debuted on Thursday(September 8, 2011), but Honda's U.S. arm tells Inside Line it won't be coming here.

"We have no plans to sell this car in the U.S.," wrote Chuck Schifsky, an American Honda Motor Co. spokesman in response to an e-mailed query from Inside Line.

Honda's European unit said in a statement that plans for the Civic Type R Mugen 2.2, including volume predictions and pricing, have yet to be finalized.

The Civic Type R Mugen 2.2 gets a sport suspension, upgraded brakes and a performance body kit.

The cylinder bore and stroke have been increased, boosting output to 256 horsepower.

"Compared to a standard Honda Civic Type R, both power and torque are up 30 percent," said Honda.

The Civic Type R Mugen 2.2 is described by the automaker as "a tribute to the Honda K20 2.0-liter engine, which has ceased production in Japan."
