Already ex works the completely newly developed Honda Civic Type R with its 320 PS is anything but discreet and inconspicuous. A huge spoiler factory on the tailgate, three tailpipes in the bumper and actually barely defused beads and edges compared to its FK2 predecessor. But that's nothing against that Mugen RC20GT Civic Art R Concept Car that yesterday at the Tokyo Auto Show was presented. This vehicle shoots the bird and has little in common with the standard Civic Type R.
A huge and extremely eye-catching other body kit focuses especially on a more than just getting used to the radiator grille. In our opinion, here are just missing the Audi emblems and finished would be any concept car from Ingolstadt. The complete body kit consists of high-quality and ultralight carbon and in our opinion this one could have been a bit more successful. This Gumpert Apolo, Audi & CR-Z-Hybrid-Mix It will not be easy on the tuning market, we are convinced of that.
Apart from the rather unsuccessful front, the body kit comes with widened fenders including gills, new side skirts, a hood including air vents, an even larger rear wing and an equally unsuccessful rear diffuser with a central exhaust pipe. The rims installed here somehow also do not want to fit this vehicle and can only turn the RC20GT into a vehicle in a continuation of "Back to the Future“As the successor to the legendary DeLorean his right to exist.
It is just as crazy in the interior, where a lot of carbon has been used and a complete cage is supposed to provide protection. The two single seats in the rear also take a bit of getting used to, and especially in our eyes pointless. Not only is the roll cage bothersome here, the 5-point belts also make it almost impossible for passengers to take a seat in the rear section. So why not remove it and you're done? It would even save weight.
That's right, that Mugen RC20GT Civic Art R Concept is definitely different! But for us, for example, is the variant of Progressive SR (Asia) or Seibon Carbon the much more successful and both are also more practical and all in all, simply nicer. How do you see it?
