A Civic for the True Honda Enthusiast!
The 2008 Honda Civic Mugen Si Sedan is a factory warrantied Civic
prepared by legendary Honda tuner Mugen. It comes equipped with a
high performance suspension, forged aluminum wheels, aerodynamic
body styling, and a sport exhaust system. The 2008 Civic Mugen Si
Sedan is now available for sale in the United States, but only 1,000
units will be produced. The Mugen Si Sedan has an MSRP of $29,500,
excluding tax, license, registration, and destination charge. It is
only available in Fiji Blue Pearl.
The suspension on
the Mugen Si Sedan has been tuned and tested at the Twin Ring Motegi
racing circuit in Japan and lowers the vehicle by 0.6 inches with
aggressive spring and damper tuning for enhanced handling
performance. Compared to the stock Civic Si Sedan, the Mugen Si has
front and rear damping force (both bump and rebound) increased
between 8 and 24 percent (the rate varies depending on condition).
The Mugen Si Sedan also features lightweight Mugen 18x7.5 inch
forged aluminum wheels (16.7 pounds, 27 percent lighter than the
stock 17x7 alloy wheel) and high-grip 215/40ZR18 summer tires.

Sedan, the time is right for the two companies to once again join
forces," said John Mendel, senior vice president of American Honda.

The 2008 Civic Mugen Si includes
a full-vehicle aero-package that adds a front spoiler with a sports
grille (with special Mugen Si emblem), side spoilers, a rear bumper
diffuser, and a rear wing. The Mugen Si's sports exhaust system
reduces exhaust system back pressure from the catalytic converter
back, resulting in an enhanced power curve. Mugen emblems are also
included throughout the vehicle. Inside, each Mugen Si comes with
serial number placard located on the instrument panel along with a
spherical 50mm Mugen shift knob.
