What are the changes to the suspension?

Mugen has developed the suspension in two different directions:

The car will spend most of its time on the "fast road" suspension which is designed to provide better handling on the road without being excessively hard for passengers. The springs are stiffer than standard, but are controlled by 5-position adjustable dampers, which are based on Mugen's commercially available products and control the movement of the chassis in both compression and rebound. Mugen has also widened the track width at the front of the car to improve stability during weight transference in cornering and to help lower the centre of gravity.
Although not initially presented as a focused track-day car, Mugen has referred to the racedeveloped suspension components originally used at Motegi circuit in Japan to develop in parallel a track-biased suspension that while much stiffer than the road set-up further limit the body roll and vertical movement; ideal for consistent flat surfaces of most race circuits.

Can I buy one?

The Honda CR-Z Mugen is purely a concept car at this stage, designed to demonstrate the potential and versatility of the Honda IMA system, with no confirmed plans for further production. Mugen and Honda (UK) will consider media and customer feedback before deciding on any next steps.

How much is this car worth?

Excluding many of the design and development costs, the materials and labour costs for this one-off 'halo' prototype put its value in excess of £150,000. However, if a limited run of cars, with a specification based on this concept, went into production, the price would be totally dependent on final specification, volume and frequency.

Can I buy any of the parts to add to my own CR-Z?

There are parts fitted to the Honda CR-Z Mugen which you can purchase through the Honda UK Mugen authorised dealer network.

These include:

Bumper skirts, grille, side skirts and rear wing - £2600
Interior assist meters, gear knob and rear view mirror - £1600
Exhaust, wheels, and suspension - £6500
