Default PICS: 2008 Honda Civic Mugen SI is COMING!!

2008 Honda Civic MUGEN Si Sedan Set for Fall Release
Honda announces details of factory-prepared MUGEN Civic

07/23/2007 - LEXINGTON, Ohio -

A factory-prepared 2008 Honda Civic MUGEN Si Sedan will debut in
mid-October, American Honda Motor Co., Inc., announced today.

The Civic MUGEN Si Sedan is equipped with a high-performance
suspension, forged aluminum wheels, aerodynamic body styling and a
sport-tuned exhaust system.

Honda enthusiasts have long been asking for factory-installed MUGEN
performance products similar to what the company offers in Japan,
said John Mendel, executive vice president of American Honda. Were
enthusiasts, too, and the ultra-premium Civic MUGEN Si Sedan offers
exclusive style and elevated handling performance with legendary
Honda refinement.

The track-tuned suspension, tested at the Twin Ring Motegi racing
circuit in Japan, lowers the vehicle by 0.6 inches with aggressive
spring and damper tuning for enhanced handling performance while
still maintaining a high level of ride comfort. Compared to the
conventional Civic Si Sedan, front and rear damping force (both bump
and rebound) was increased between 8- and 24-percent. Lightweight
16.98-pound 187.5-inch forged aluminum wheels (27 percent lighter
than the stock 177 alloy wheel) and high-grip BFGoodrich g-Force
KDW 215/40ZR18 summer tires help to create MUGENs unique, rewarding
and well-balanced handling performance character. The full-vehicle
aero-package adds a front spoiler with a sports grille, side
spoilers, a rear bumper diffuser and a rear wing.

The sport exhaust system reduces back pressure from the catalytic
converter back. The Civic MUGEN Si Sedan will be available
exclusively in Fiji Blue Pearl and include front and rear MUGEN
emblems. Inside, a MUGEN Limited Edition placard is located on the
center console along with a spherical 50 mm MUGEN aluminum shift
knob.

The name MUGEN symbolizes Honda performance throughout Asia and around
the globe. MUGEN, under license by M-TEC Co., Ltd., of Japan, has been
closely associated with Honda for more than three decades in the
design and manufacture of racing and premium aftermarket performance
products.

The limited-production vehicle (maximum of 1,000 units for the 2008
model year) will have a retail price of less than $30,000 when it
goes on sale and include a full factory warranty. A prototype of the
Honda Civic MUGEN Si was shown at the Specialty Equipment Market
Association (SEMA) show in fall 2006.

Civic MUGEN Si Sedan Specs:
Engine Type = i-VTEC DOHC 4-cylinder engine
Displacement = 2.0 liters (1998 cc)
Transmission = 6 Speed MT
Horsepower = 197 @ 7800 rpm
