Amongst the concepts and special editions at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2016, tuners have turned their attention to the new Civic Type R to give their unique twist on the race car for the road.
The event is the world’s largest customised automobile show, with thousands attending to see radical versions of some of the best-selling cars in Japan and globally.
Mugen Civic Type R concept
Famous for making many adaptations of best-selling Honda models, tuning house Mugen has taken the new Civic Type R (recently launched for sale in Japan) and added even more aggressive body styling to the package.
The concept adds a revised front bumper with contrasting black parts around the lip and wheel arches. The black theme is continued through the rest of the car, with side and rear skirts giving an aggressive on road stance. The standard rear spoiler is replaced by a lighter, race car inspired design, again finished in black.
Modulo Civic Type R
Modulo have taken the standard Type R design, and added a revised body kit, with flared side skirts. The standard fuel filler cap has been replaced with one of a different design, while red body colour accents are used on the wing mirror covers and the sides of the rear spoiler.
Honda Racing at Tokyo Auto Salon
Honda Racing will exhibit a range of its challengers from 2015, including the McLaren-Honda MP4-30, the Super GT GT500 NSX CONCEPT-GT and Honda’s entry in the Japanese Super Formula series.
