Mugen has announced plans to offer a high-performance Honda CR-Z in Japan.

Dubbed the Mugen RZ, the model features an aerodynamic body kit with a front spoiler, a revised grille and modified side skirts. There's also a rear diffuser, an adjustable wing and a sports exhaust system. Other highlights include an adjustable suspension, high-performance brakes and 17-inch alloy wheels with Dunlop Direzza Z II tires.

Interior pictures were not released, but Mugen says the cabin will have two-tone seats, a carbon fiber gear knob, a boost meter and an individually-numbered plaque.

Power is provided by a supercharged 1.5-liter engine that produces 156 HP (115 kW) and 185 Nm (136 lb-ft) of torque. It is backed up by an IMA hybrid system that develops 20 HP (15 kW) and 78 Nm (58 lb-ft) of torque.

Production will be limited to 300 units and pricing starts at ¥4,494,000 (including a 5% consumption tax).
