Default Honda CR-Z Mugen RR production hopes dashed

If it's too early to start drinking, crack open a cold one anyway. You're gonna need a beer to cry into. Top Gear reports that Honda has no plans to produce the CR-Z Mugen RR Hybrid Concept. Zero. None. While we saw this coming a mile off, some deeply-oppressed optimistic shard of our psyche clung to the hope that Honda would awaken from its performance coma. Alas, no. The world will be denied the CR-Z it deserves.

We probably don't need to remind you that the CR-Z Mugen RR Hybrid Concept makes heavy use of carbon fibre. The doors, hood and front fenders are all formed from the lightweight material, as is a complete underbody tray. With 197 horsepower on tap, the concept clicks off a 0-60 dash in 6.6 seconds, and if you're restrained enough to run it in Eco mode, it can return somewhere in the neighborhood of 4.7 L/100 km.
