Honda’s official tuning partner, Mugen has recently created a one-off sports-hybrid based on the CRZ to which it added a supercharger in order to produce 200 bhp. The Honda CRZ Mugen has also been fitted with a louder exhaust, and a series of carbon fiber components to make it extra light. Honda says the Mugen CRZ hybrid is as fast as the Civic Type R, so AutoExpress decided to take it for a spin around the track and see if it’s as sporty as Honda claims.

Apart from that AutoExpess has tested another Mugen car, this time a bit more extreme – the Ariel Atom.
