Honda will go to the upcoming 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon with a handful of Mugen concepts that will definitely make you drool.
First up, the Mugen lineup will be spearheaded by one Civic Type R and a pair of modified S660 roadsters. The hot hatch’s aggressive styling has been given a slight makeover with the addition of new aero parts, large rear wing, a vented bonnet and a new set of alloy wheels.
The S660 roadster, on the other hand, gets a more subtle cosmetic upgrade, wearing a Mugen front grille, twin centre outlet exhaust and new alloy wheels. Inside, the cabin is embellished with red leather upholstery.
The other S660 roadster concept gets an array of new body panels, along with a redesigned rear engine cover, adjustable rear wing, vented bonnet, as well as new front guards. We’re unsure unsure if there’s anything done to the engine but knowing Mugen, there should be a few surprises under the hood.
Apart from the three, Mugen is also set to showcase a modified HR-V, which has been treated to a set of gorgeous alloy wheels, Premium Crystal Red Metallic exterior paint and a bodykit. A STEPWGN Spada MPV wearing sporty body kit, 18-inch wheels, lowered suspension and a sport exhaust system will also join the floor.
