Honda to upgrade Civic Type R with special Mugen edition

Fans of the Honda Civic will be pleased to learn that a new limited edition is planned to give the current version of the hot hatch a fitting send off.

A new model is set to be released and in order to say goodbye to the current model Honda is to release a new Mugen upgrade, Auto Express reported.

The line will carry a more powerful 2.2-litre engine as Mugen goes all out to produce the definitive version of the model it created last year when it hand built 20 Type R Mugen cars.

Owners lucky enough to get their hands on one of those models, and with £38,000 sitting idle in their garage, will be able to make the most of the new offering, which is expected to deliver 256bhp and peak torque at 240Nm.

The news comes shortly after Honda confirmed that a race-prepared version of its new-look Civic hot hatch will be used in next year's British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).
